tutorial tuesday

It’s starting to wind down.  I look at the school calendar and see all the typical nice weather May activities planned and part of me gets teary because I think “it’s the end of his kindergarten year” and another part thinks “soon it will be time to be home all day…every day…”

Teacher Gifts Tutorials

But this time of the year still sneaks up on me and I get into the last few days and realize we don’t have an appreciation gift for the teacher.  And believe me…with my “angel”…an appreciation gift is well deserved!  So here are some ideas that I’ve dug up and I hope they help you plan at that time…*sniff*…quickly approaches.

This first one has no pattern nor tutorial.  I couldn’t find a link from Pinterest, but thought crafty quilters might not need one!

Lil Twister Quilt Inspiration

Jackie from Canton Village Quilt Works has a great tutorial to make a Lil Twister quilt.  I just love the look of these little spinning blocks that seem to keep the quilt in constant motion.  Jackie has the Lil’ Twister template tool by CS Designs in her shop.  The first photo below will take you to the tutorial.  The others are to give you fabric inspiration! Pun intended…give it a whirl!!

Bowls and Bins Sewing Tutorials

 

Make pretty catch alls or storage containers with Fabric Bins & Bowls Sewing Tutorials!  I always have little places that gather small items that have no proper place.  Or I have a decent sized storage space for my cosmetics and personal stuff, but no real separation and everything gets thrown together.  One of these bowls would be great to putting all the remote controls in to easily find when you need them.  One of the square bins would be great on my night stand to organize my reading that I need to catch up on.  And of course, what a great gift!

Where do you need a little extra storage?
