Need to Know Craft Trends 2014: Cricut

05 Dec 2013
By Zoe Monk

“One of the big crafting trends moving into 2014 will be patterns. Floral designs and bright, bold patterns were already big in 2013, but this trend will have a more historical focus next year. Think beautiful flowers on white fabrics, and vintage patterns on white walls in the home. Designs such as this can be easily created using wall vinyl and iron-on materials for household items such as cushions.

“Yellow is likely to be the big colour next year and whether people are crafting for interior design, fashion or homemade gifts, a touch of sunshine will be bang on trend. Mixing yellow with soft greys can tone down any bright yellows, so hints of the colour using cut outs of iron-on materials on cushions or vinyl patterns on vases or lampshades can be a subtle but very current crafting idea for the coming year.

“A strong crafting trend in 2013, upcycling and experimenting with turning the old into something new, will continue into next year. Giving something a second life can result in the use of a range of crafting techniques such as painting, stencilling, embossing and again, cutting out fun, decorative designs from vinyl or iron-on materials. Digital personalisation will grow significantly, particularly for weddings, children’s bedrooms, tech gadgets and kitchen equipment.”
