Crafting Guide

I am having my second craft night this coming Saturday evening so I thought I would compile a list of some tutorials and ideas to share, along with some of the projects I am planning to make

Sew, Mama, Sew hosts a Handmade Holidays annual event. Each day is dedicated to a particular recipient, like gifts for babies, students, foodies, travelers, on and on. You can also look through the past 3 years for ideas.

Skip to my Lou has lots of great ideas including a compilation of 10 Free Apron Patterns and 10 Free Tote Bag Patterns.

Moda Bake Shop is always full of great quilt project ideas, but this post for 8 Fun Projects lists some other great ideas for those who don't quilt.

Looking for Felt Food? I drool every time I look at Homemade by Jill's awesome list of tutes all over the web. If you are feeling particularly brave, you could also make her incredible car play mat. I really want to try my hand at one, perhaps next year.

What am I going to make?

For starters, I made some bean bags for a girlfriends 4 year old.

And I'm making a new quilt, but I can only show you some scraps for now.

What's left on my list?

Hooded Bath Towels- does it get any easier than this? You could appliqué an initial or animal or some-such on the back to personalize it a bit.

This Gathered Clutch has been on my list for ages, I hope to whip one or two up for gifts this year.

I also came across this cute Suit Coat Clutch so if I can get my hands on a suit, I'd like to make one as well.

Those are at the top of the list for now.

What's on your list?
