MORE of other people's cleverness!

Once again I've found some time to roam the internet for crafty cleverness I can share with you!
My mission this time was to find projects that would make wonderful gifts for all ages. 

Amy at Nana Company *always* makes me smile with her treasures, and this tutorial for a ruffled baby bib is the cutest I've seen! Check it out HERE!

Bloom shared a simple journal cover tutorial HERE, and later she made this cover HERE using a free embroidery design from Elsa Mora HERE...(I have just printed this up to stitch - so gorgeous!)

The  very talented Margot Languedoc shared a simple pattern for this gorgeous stack of pincushions HERE. Tie a pretty ornament to the top and drool...

These fabric pom poms could be used in so many ways! Federica shares her tutorial HERE.
Do you have lots of fabric strips with nothing to use them in?
Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous has made this gorgeous kitchen towel that will give them a new home!
See her tutorial HERE.

Isn't this tea cosy wonderful!! And it has spots...I love spots. 
You'll find the tutorial HERE at Sew We Quilt!
 

Something totally different, a brooch made from an old knife, buttons and beads! When you see the tutorial HERE you'll realise it's not hard to make! This is definitely something Blossom and I will be trying...

I have a few pieces lots of favourite fabric yardage that has never been used because I love the fabric too much to cut it into little pieces, BUT, this tutorial for a basic pillowcase may be the answer to my dilemma as I can keep them 'almost' uncut. ;-)
Make your own pillowcases using THIS tutorial from Mumtastic!

And finally, for the little girl in your life, a doll garland!
Visit Charla Anne for a simple tutorial HERE. Could be something to do with daughters or the grandies...

I hope some of these ideas have helped with gift giving this Christmas season! 
They've certainly helped me. :-)

  8. All of your designs are so beautiful.

    Do you draw your alphabets freehand or is there a book or is there a book of alphabet patterns to purchase?

    Thanks and blessings,
