tutorial tuesday

Since it’s now time for all things back to school, it’s time to figure out how to hold and keep those pencils, crayons, markers etc.  There’s the plastic pencil box choice, which while a good option, always seems to break at the hinges.  Or, if your child’s classroom allows for the leeway and creativity, here’s a few tutorials to try!

This week’s expertly coordinated bundle comes from Cuts of Cotton and features a bright and fun color palette.  I like the choice to ground the vibrant aquas and energetic chartreuse with a cool charcoal gray.

Here’s what you will find in this week’s bundle:

  • Prisma in Turquoise
  • Pearl Bracelet in Ice Skate
  • Pop in Aqua
  • Feathers in Florescent
  • Oval Elements in Chartreuse

Mix It Up Monday aims to help you coordinate fabrics from multiple collections to take the guess work out of your fabric selections.  I hope this week’s bundle inspires your next project!
