I really enjoy all types of crafts and at the moment my favourite craft would have to be sewing. While I've been blog surfing I've found some great tutorials that I thought you might like as well. Here are a few of my favourites.

One just for those of you who have babies or know someone who is having a baby will like this tutorial I found on making a handy nappy wallet over at And so, I sew.

Or for another cute baby idea, these spring felt birds can be made using some felt and some string and beads. I thought they would look perfect as a mobile for a babies room. Check them out at Poppytalk.

I was googling button flowers and came across this very cute button flower brooch that would be perfect as a gift for a special lady or girl.
And then we can't forget the little boys in the family. I found this cozy car caddy tutorial over at homemade by jill which I'll keep in mind for my nephew's 2nd birthday coming up soon. I did my own version of this a while ago, this looks cute and I really like the layout of this version.

This idea is a little late for mother's day now but I really like this simple and practical idea of making a plain tea towel pretty at Homespun Living.

Have a lovely Thursday.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing these Catherine - I've bookmarked them to check out properly over the weekend. I'm hoping to get into a bit moe sewing after Grace's party is out of the way. I made a little nappy wallet when she was born but I like the looks of these ones with the fold-over clasp. Those birds are super-cute :)

  5. That's a great list! I get so stuck on clothes sewing that I forget about all the other great things to make. Thanks for the reminder.

  6. Love your blog, I am off to spotlight for some glue to make some of those button brooches. And maybe a dishcloth oh and maybe a tea towell.
