It's a very blah rainy day here today and I'm not really motivated to do any shop sewing. I have been browsing online and have come across a lot of really great tutorials I would like to try. Here is just a few that I really like. Just click on the picture to go to the tutorial.

1. Amy Butler Hourglass Pillows

2. Coasters from The Sometimes Crafter

3. Patchwork Kitchen Mat from the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog

Mini Notepad Organizers

As I said in my last post, I have been working on some mini notepad organizers. I have about 10 done and have been slowly getting them listed in my shop. This turned out way better than I expected. Don't you just love when that happens. I have been using mine everyday and don't know how I went so long without it.

I haven't forgotten about June's giveaway. I am going to try and get it posted this weekend after some much needed cleaning of my sewing room.

Double Pleat Tote

There are some new bags in the shop. These are Double Pleat Totes. They are the same as the Double Pleat Tote with Sash (which have sold out) but without the sash. I love these bags. They are probably one of my most favourite bags I've ever made. They are a great large bag that holds a lot of stuff but are still light weight. I especially love the wider straps. They're really comfortable on your shoulder when you carry a lot. They are made out of home dec weight fabric and 150z organic canvas. I am in love with this organic canvas. It's expensive but worth every penny. These bags here are made with fabric from Joel Dewberry's Ginseng collection which I absolutly love.

I am also working on some mini notebook holders. They are really cute and handy. They hold a little notebook and pen and has an extra pocket for receipts or coupons. I will hopefully have some posted today.

And lastly, I haven't forgotten about June's giveaway. I will be posting that hopefully in the next week I just haven't decided on the prize yet.
