I Love Tutorials!

I absolutely love tutorials.  When I come across a great blog with GREAT tutorials I always save it as a favorite.  So today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite blogs! 

My sweet friend Abby over @ Tales and Trials has some great tutorials, but this one is my fav!!   
She also has some great ideas for shopping with your kids and an eye for a bargain at Good Will and garage sales!  I am excited about my friendship with Abby for so many reasons.  We have been able to keep each other accountable in this crazy blogging world.  We don't want to get too caught up in it and she has been such a source of encouragement for me.  We are meeting next weekend to go to my favorite antique store!  Can't wait to meet you Abby...ok meet you in person I mean ;)

My next favorite is Erin over @ Sutton Grace.  She is amazing at sewing!  She refashions a TON of her stuff for herself and her kids. 
I will definitely be copying her...as I need some MAJOR help when it comes to sewing! 

Ok, another fav is Kristen over @ Grace Violet.  I have blogged about some of her tutorials on flowers before.  She does a great job on making the simple into chic!  She also gives a great tutorial on how to make coffee cozies
These would be GREAT gifts and pretty inexpensive to make.  I'll probably get going on these as soon as I can get some fabric other than ticking strip ;)  Although, it could be cute!  Ok, and lastly, she has a love for ruffles :)  Instant friend!!

So there you have it.  My favorite tutorial blogs.  I hope they give you some fun ideas on sewing and such.  Tonight I have a trunk show.  I am pretty excited about it.  I love girl time!  Hope everyone is having a lovely Tuesday!

Oh!!  I forgot to say THANK YOU so much for all of the sweet encouragement on my post last week.  It meant so much to me!  I love being a part of this blogging world :)

OK those cozies are just TOO cute!!! I was just in Bed Bath & Beyond the other day and they sold thermal cups that looked like Starbucks type coffee cups. I think I should get one and make a few of those cozies!


Ooooo good luck at your trunk show!!!! How exciting!
