Craft Journal Ideas
Our community is still going crazy over the collection of Bullet Journal tracker ideas I pulled together so today I thought I’d bring you some more.
This time it’s a collection of craft Bullet Journal tracker ideas, which is just what you need to keep track of your knitting, sewing and crochet projects!
Keep track of your ever-growing collection of knitting needles and crochet hooks
I love this crochet hook and knitting needle tracker because not only does it have a handy conversion chart but there’s also a column for keeping track of how many of each one you already own.
Record the projects you finished by month
This overall project tracker index is a great way to keep track of how many projects you completed each month and what they were.
Include swatches, yarn and labels

I love this idea of including your gauge swatch, pieces of yarn and the labels in your Bullet Journal. This is especially useful if you’re making something to give away or sell so that you have the information if you ever want to make the project over again.
Track your Work in Progress projects
You can use your Bullet Journal to keep track of your Work in Progress, because there’s not many people who don’t have more than one project underway at once right? Keeping a note of the materials needed is a good way for you to make sure you have everything to hand.
Include a drawing of the finished project
This is the spread that Suzie created to keep track of her sewing projects. You could use this layout for any craft project though. Include a sketch of the item you’re making, or if its from a pattern you could paste in a photograph instead.
Keep track of what’s in your craft stash

If your craft stash is overwhelming and you can never find what you need (or keep buying the same things over and over) why not take some time out to get organised. Alicia designed this tracker for her Bullet Journal so she knows exactly what she has in her craft stash, and more importantly which box it’s in!
Track your Granny Squares
This is a great layout to copy if you are crocheting a granny square project. The simple tracker on the right will help you keep track of how many squares you have made. I love how Mary has an image of the project she is making and has room to put a photograph of her own Max the African Flower Bulldog when he’s done.
Cut down on your impulse buys
Jen has discovered a happy side effect to keeping track of her projects in her Bullet Journal… cutting down on impulse buys! When you can see how many projects you already have on the go you’ll be less to add anything else to the list… maybe…
Make a handy yarn weights and gauges table
If you can never remember which size hook or needle to use with which yarn weight then you need one of these trackers in your BuJo! Here’s the information you need to complete the table just in case you can’t see it clearly on the image.
Track your vital statistics
If you enjoy making clothes for yourself or your loved ones keep track of their measurements in your Bullet Journal so they’re right there when you need them. You could also keep track of your favourite blanket sizes.
Plan and track your crochet temperature blanket

If you working on a temperature blanket (or scarf) this year you could dedicate a spread in your Bullet Journal to help you keep track of which yarn you picked out for which temperature. You could even combine it with a temperature in pixels spread (you know just in case you miss a day or two crocheting the scarf and need to catch up, which is bound to happen!)
Include your stitch diagrams
If you are working on a crochet project take the time to map out your stitch diagrams along with your other project details so you have the pattern right where you need it.
Make an amigurumi checklist
Whether you’re working on an amigurumi crochet pattern or any other project that has a series of steps keep track of them with a handy checklist like this one.
Make yourself a row counter

If you’re like me and lose track of which row you were working on adding a row counter tracker to your BuJo is a really good idea!
