A few things to check out

I have less than two weeks until my daughter’s wedding (holy *@#$!), so that’s been keeping me crazy pre-occupied if nothing else.

Then we got a new computer last Friday and I’ve been busy setting it up and transferring files over.  I guess what I’m trying to say, is that I don’t have a lot of time for blogging right now.

I have been reading other people’s blogs, however, and I thought I would share a few great tutorials with you that I’ve found.

The first one is a really easy tote bag made with fat quarters from The Happy Zombie.  It’s an oldie but goodie (2009) and still looks easy and adorable.  You can find the Poochie Bag tutorial here.

The second project is a cute apron from Sew 4 Home.  The tutorial is well-done, and you can find it here.

This would make a great gift for the bride-to-be, but you would need to make one for the groom too – we don’t want to suggest that the cooking is all up to her!  So a reversible apron (also from Sew 4 Home) for him.  You can find the tutorial here.

And if you have lots of scraps lying around, maybe you would like to try a scrappy quilt.  Amber from A Little Bit Biased shares her Scrap Jar Stars tutorial and this one is on my “to do” list!  She did a great job on this tutorial – and it’s visually yummy too!

That’s all I’ve got for now.  I’ll try to check in next week and then it’s wedding bells for us (my daughter that is)!

  1. Dear Julie,
    I would be so nervous I would have no time to be looking for any of these things. You must be amazing and a great multitask -er at home. Thanks for sharing the tutorials. I love the bag and I just found some fat quarters I purchased a while ago for a similar project. This will get me going. You better take some time to continue with the wedding preparation. It will be a great time for your family and friends.
