More Inspiration

I usually spend too much time online looking at all the cool things others have made. Then I have less time to work on my projects and my list of projects grows longer... Here are some cool things I've found lately:
Sweet Jessie has these bookplates to download for free!

If I ever finally start embroidering, here are some free (and some to buy) vintage embroidery designs at patternbee.

Here are some really cute tags and embroidery designs, but not for free...

I am really enjoying the happythings blog. That is where I am learning to make my quilt. She has several tutorials to teach you how to make things, like drawstring bags, quilts, bibs, and other neat things.

There is a lot of inspiration at this flickr site!

Martha Stewart's website has tons of project ideas. My favorite right now is a really cute project from Petit Collage with 2 free templates to download:

You can watch the video from the show to see how to make them.

Here is a tutorial for making a crayon roll. The only thing I would change is adding more fabric across the top to fold over the crayons so they stay in the roll better.

Here is a tutorial for sewing a tote bag.

The cutest paper dolls to download for free!
Here are more free downloads from A Wee Wonderfuls.

I think that's all for right now.... However I did add cloth baby blocks to my list of things to sew, and I am almost finished with one. I also need to add crayon roll, tote bag, fabric concentration, wee bunny, and bean bags. Here's a picture of the banner I am going to make (with different fabric of course). I have a lot of fabric cut, now I need to sit down and sew.
