Thursday, December 1, 2011 need some inspiration?

It's the beginning of the countdown to the 25 days of Christmas!  Are you ready?  Have you finished up all of those projects in your head for gift giving this season?  Whew, I'm not even close!  But I did find some new (to me anyway!) websites and blogs that have great quick sewing projects and tutorials for those extra special handmade gifts.  Come take a look at these cool sites: Has great tutorials for little bags and pouches as well as awesome advice on taking great pictures...check out her VERY cute dog in a bag!  I've admired this blog for a while, as she has great tips and tutorials.  Check out her latest...a thimble keeper!  Great idea, as those little guys get lost so fast in my sewing room!  Another favorite...check out her tutorial in July, 2011 for a very unique coin purse.  I need to try this one and use up some scraps

Now, I hope that you won't stray to far from me, as I'll soon have another tutorial for you!  I've been invited to join the Nancy Zieman Tablet Blog Tour in January!  I'll have my own rendition of these new tablet keepers for you to see and make.  However, if you can't wait and want to make your own now...check out this great tutorial from Clover:

Sew...are you inspired yet???
