I must apologize for the lack of pictures on my blog lately. My new camera is working fine, or would be if my batteries and charger had arrived. I'm still waiting - hubby got a great charger and it's "in the mail". I can't do the tutorial I had planned for you until it gets here, but I will do it!
In the meantime, how about some more tutorials? I did remember to ask the blog owners [a couple, anyway] if I could use their photos, and they graciously agreed.
First up, Jenny at Elefantz is having a January challenge, and I think it would make a perfect Christmas gift. She shows how to recycle a skirt into a darling apron! Best of all, it can count twice if you make it - link here on my blog to be in the monthly give-away, and then link on Jenny's blog to be in HER give-away! For Jenny's blog, you'll need to email her pics of the before and after - first the skirt, then the apron you make with it. She has a great tutorial!
Next is Bejeweled Quilts By Barb. She has a wonderful tutorial for a gorgeous table topper, and mug rugs.
That would make a lovely gift!
Next is Kerry from VeryKerryBerry. She has a great tutorial on single binding for your mug rug. I'm going to have to try this, I really hate binding small things. I make it like I do for big quilts, and it never lays right. Kerry solves that!
Terisa at Running With Scissors has a great tutorial for a bumblebee/flower pincushion - very sweet!
Great gift for your sewing friends, isn't that too cute?
Stash Manicure is next, Karen from SewManyWays has done a great post on organizing your stash and also has a tutorial for an endless scarf - yes, made of fabric! It's really lovely, and the ladies on your list would love it.
And last but not at all least - Carmen emailed me some really fantastic links, I could get lost in these for hours!
Tipnut's Crafty Christmas
I believe you have to log in for Craftster now - perhaps not - but it's free, and there are thousands of tutorials, for a huge variety of crafts, not just sewing. You may want to set aside an evening there. Thanks Carmen!
That should be enough to keep you going, right? *G* Now - I have started the give-away gift for this month - I think you will like it - I hope you like it! The minute it's done, I'll post a pic. Enjoy the links, and thinking about who you're making for this month!
