Crafts of Color: Black Crafters That Inspire & Educate!
Find inspiration in these beautiful projects by beautiful Black crafters!
I love my community so very much! And I’m always encouraging my community members to share their projects and photos in one of my active Facebook groups. I encourage ALL members to share their blog posts, tutorial videos, and photos, but one group in particular deserves a special call-out — my beautiful Black members’ creations are to be celebrated and SEEN. To promote the Black voices in our community more actively, I am sharing blogs, channels, projects, and photos my Black members and readers have sent me. I encourage you to visit these crafters’ and creators’ blogs, sites, channels, and stores!
If you’d like to join me in boosting and uplifting these amazingly talented crafters and content creators, I encourage you to do the following:
- Follow them on social media
- Engage with their social content
- Comment on projects on their sites and channels – ask questions about things you’re unclear on!
- Buy their files, patterns, and products!
- Try making them and link back to the author’s site, post, channel, or store
- Take real action: hire them to teach, recommend them to your friends, boost them up!
Tabitha Sewer – This is a sewer and pattern designer with super cute tutorials! You’ve got to see her custom vinyl fabric tutorial in which she cut out cute vinyl strawberries and put them on vinyl! I love this idea!! Imagine the possibilities. You can visit her blog here, watch her on YouTube here, and follow her on Instagram here. She’s also got a whole line of adorable buttons for sale in her shop… I need those iridescent hearts!
Grillo Designs – This is a DIY blog by interior decorator and author Medina Grillo that showcases how-to tutorials, decorating ideas, crafty hacks, and creative ideas for the home. I particularly love her cheerful burlap daisy wreath tutorial — this would be great on a front door this summer! You can get her full tutorial, including a video, over on her blog here. Medina is also the author of the recently-released book, “Home Sweet Rented Home,” a guide to transforming your home without losing your deposit.

Her name is Amber Kemp-Gerstel and her site is just bursting with color. And I’m in love with her adorably cute papercrafts! I just want to make them all … and so will you! Check out this tutorial on three ways to make a pop-up card! Follow Damask Love on Instagram here and check her out on Facebook here.
