Tutorial Round Up!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a non-themed tutorial round up! I thought themes would be more fun but it turns out, having to pick a theme just makes me not do round ups as often. Lame! Not to mention there are so many cool things I’ve come across that I haven’t gotten to post because of it. I’m sure I’ll still do themed round ups sometimes, because they are fun! But for now, here goes the first of many totally random ones!

1. Tassel garland – I love tassels and need a reason to make this!
2. Painted cork board hoops – I think these would be great to use as inspiration boards!

3. Clay jewelry dish – I need to make a couple of these because I have a habit of leaving jewelry all over my bedroom.
4. Fringe lantern – I love fringe! I don’t have a place for one of these big things but I wish I did!

5. Tin can windsock – for a while, I was obsessed with glass jar crafts, now my thing is tin cans! Making this!
6. Lampshades on a string – plastic cups covered with fabric! So simple an pretty!

7. Floral words – I would love to decorate a wall with this! What to write though? hmm…
8. Driftwood cottages  – These would be so cute in the garden as little gnome homes! :)

Tutorial Round Up: Easy Quilts

I have a confession to make. I absolutely despise quilt making. Most time consuming, least fun thing I’ve ever made. Seriously. My head hurts thinking about sewing all of those little pieces together. I have so much respect for hardcore quilters – I don’t know how they do it! It’s art and I don’t have the talent for it. BUT! I’ve been seriously wanting a quilt lately. Because they’re pretty. Seeing coordinating fabrics together makes me happy. So I went on a quest to find some quilt tutorials that won’t make my head hurt. And I’m really excited to try one some time soon!

Stripe quilt | Chevron quilt

Sunburst quilt | Ric rac blanket

Simple solid quilt | Simple 4 square quilt

Easy rag quilt | Circle applique quilt

I think I’m most likely to try the stripe quilt first. And the ric rac blanket inspires me to make a quilt with pom pom trim around the edges. I kinda love that stuff!

Have you ever tried to make a quilt? Love it? Hate it?
