A few tutorials I have bookmarked...

How was your Wednesday?  Mine was fine... nothing exciting happened today (unlike yesterday when another superyacht in the boatyard burned down - thankfully they were quite some distance from our boat, absolutely awful for those involved though).
Anyway on a more pleasant note, I love finding new tutorials to make things, and I thought today that I would share with you a few of my favourite tutorials I have bookmarked to make later...

Firstly, this carpetbag weekend bag from the Weekend Designer is on my 'Must Make' list.   The design is based on this one by LIFEwithBIRD...

I love this bag!  I will definitely be making this when I get some time back at home with the sewing machine (probably this time next year).

Next up, some lovely burp cloths for babies from Chickpea Sewing Studio... Everyone I know seems to be having a baby this year, so I think these might have to be top of my list for now.

And here, from Sew Mama Sew, how to quick piece tiny squares.  I think this would be great for using up scraps, and I can think of tonnes of things to do with them... cards, pot mitts, doll quilts etc...

And this great tutorial from Biz Miss on how to make a plush toy pattern from scratch... Just think, any of those creatures in your imagination can come to life!  This tutorial was about how she made a plush version of Mitch for Neon Monster... And here is a picture of the final product now available here!

Here's another baby orientated tutorial... This one is from Floating World Views and it is for a baby stroller liner.  I think this is a great idea for personalizing your stroller, especially for those occasions when like Suzy says, "every second stroller is a Maclaren"... How do you know which is yours?

Those are just a few of many tutorials I have bookmarked for future reference... If you want to links to more, check back next Wednesday!

They're all really cool ideas Arabella, but the one that appeals to me the most is the baby stroller liner. What a great idea! Not only will it keep the stroller cleaner, but it has to be a whole lot cooler for baby to lie against a natural fabric rather than the synthetic material the stroller is made of.

This could be a great idea for a car seat too.

Loved the little quilt idea too even though I know there is no way I'll ever be making one... don't have the patience for quilting, but I do so love it.
