Can you believe we're heading into our fourth month of Christmas making? We're doing so good!
This month's give-away gift again comes from the gorgeous Lyn of Blue Bird Quilts. Four of the most delicious quarter yard cuts I've seen in a long time....
Aren't those too yummy! Thank you Lyn! She's not feeling well at the moment, please go give her some well-wishes...
I have some tutorials for you this month, our lovely Carmen has been busy! I hope I've got them all. I'm feeling a bit scattered these days. So, here we go!
First up is a gorgeous paper gift bag - no sewing required! From MeGa Stampin Studio, there are tons of great ideas here. Bring coffee. And maybe lunch.
Quilting in the Rain has a great rag quilt tutorial, she's a Moda Bakeshop contributor as well. Great stuff here.
If you love to re-fashion, Just Chic has some great tutorials!
Love mug rugs? How about an adorable little cottage mug rug? Get it at The Sometimes Crafter!
From Sew4Home, a lovely idea to dress up towels - so pretty and would make a quick easy gift.
From Busy As Can Be, a wonderful bread bag pattern. I really need to make this one!
A Spoonful of Sugar has a darling little gathered basket - sweet.
And now for some I've come across:
Penny's Hands has an adorable shopping bag tutorial - be sure to click on part two! I think these would be a great gift!
Val Spiers has done the cutest rooster and hen appliques for towels, and she's offering them to her readers free! Thank you Val!
Sew Mama Sew has a free pattern for teapot mug rugs - they're embroidered and are they cute.
Noodlehead has a great Zippy Wallet tutorial, another must make.
My gorgeous friend Cathe [hi Cathe!] from Glory Quilts has a wonderful Tessellating Stars quilt pattern on her blog - she is a wonderful quilter and teacher! This would make fabulous table runners.
V and Co. has a darling jersey knit bracelet tutorial, I really love this one!
Finally, Sentimental Stitches has the cutest needlebook I've seen in a long time - you don't want to miss this one!
I hope I didn't miss any! Carmen, let me know if I did. I hope this will spark some ideas for you for April. I have no idea what I'm going to make yet, more than one thing I hope. I'm feeling the need to step up my game here after looking at all of your beautiful projects!
