Tiny Spool Displays

Tutorial: Studio Calico Mini Photo Holders
I've had my eye on this tutorial for a while! I love the look of the altered thread spool! It's so cute! I made these three today for fun! I can't wait to display more inchies, photos, and crafty bits in them!

Totebag and Zippered Pouch Tutorials

To a novice sewer, totes and zippered pouches can seem a little intimidating (at least they were to me!). Here are a couple of simple yet satisfying sewing projects, and two of my favorite tutorials that I find myself referencing again and again:

Twelve 22's zippered Pouch Tutorial
You'll find yourself able to adapt this into making wristlets, reusable snack bags, pencil pouches, etc. This shows you exactly how to line your pouches perfectly with no raw edges!

Mama's Pocketbook Tote Bag Tutorial
This tute has it all: Boxed corners, pockets, and lining! The results are a really professional looking tote, even if you're new to sewing.

Simple instructions to make a couple of projects you'll be sure to get some use out of. Now get to it! :)
