We want to help you celebrate or show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community so we’ve put together some crafts you can do with your friends or family this weekend whether you’re staying in or going to a parade!

Crochet is an amazing way to add color to your home or clothing and there’s nothing more stunning than the classic granny square. We love the way this blanket turned out from @joanna_crochet_mama!
