So I've found some beautiful tutorials to keep you going with some busy work, but not the hard slog of an all out PROJECT!
1. Make-up Bag Tutorial by Chezlin
This is the one Chezlin has on the site
And this is mine!
I made a stack of these for Christmas Pressies and they really do come out great. I've had a lot of praise for the size and style of mine so I know they work well and make great gifts. The instructions are very clear but I'd suggest this mainly for a intermediate sewer.
2. Reversible Bag by Very Purple Person
Here is verypurpleperson with her creation
And here's a blurry picture of mine!
This is a great bag pattern and tutorial. Again, I made a stack of these for Christmas and they were loved by all recipients! There's a little bit of fiddling when you turn it out the right way but nothing that a beginner sewist can't handle.
3. 50's Headband by Casey Brown at Casey's Elegant Musings
The beautiful Casey modelling her vintage-inspired headband
As you know, I love Casey and her beautiful blog (see Friday's post) and this seems like such a dead-easy little project. I love how she makes everything look like you could just pick it up in an afternoon and be a pro by bed-time. She really does make crafting feel very comfortable and not the least bit stressful!
Thanks for stopping by!
