I love tutorials. They are the reason I even started reading blogs and subsequently began my own. The kindness of others to share tips, tricks and skills for no monetary benefit just amazes me. Because of this I am starting a new weekly post called "Tutorial Thursdays". This is where you can help. Have you prepared a tutorial and would like to be a guest blogger? Let me know. Have you tried a tutorial and would like to share your experiences with it? Let me know. I would love to learn new things right along with you. It doesn't have to be fabric, or even kid (girl) related, since I know there are so many of you with different talents and interests than I.
Today I am going to highlight Wisecraft's amazing fabric flower tutorial. I keep on coming back to this simple yet stunning flower. I made this little clippie for my sweet niece and sort of wanted to keep it for myself. We even did a variation of it for our MOPS craft this week. It is a fabulous use of fabric scraps and can be done while you are watching one of Fall's new TV shows.

So send me your links. I look forward to trying something new.


  1. I love tutorials, here are three that I've done on my blog:


    The links to the tutorials should be on each one. The witch hat is GREAT and easy and currently appropriate for the time of year. I'm also in the midst of using a tutorial to make a shower cap. I just use them from hotels, but finally ran out and hope this one won't wear out.


    I have also been thinking of doing a tutorial for my little booklets...


    Maybe someday...

    Those flowers look adorable. Would be a perfect embellishment for some of my bags!

  2. Oohhh!! Thank you! I can see some SUPER cute and sassy hair bows for my little diva!!

    I wish I knew of some tutorials to share with you...let me do some thinking! Nothing comes to mind right off the bat!! Well, let me rephrase that...Some come to mind but I think I got them all from you in the first place!! You are a great source of information my friend!!

  3. I have always wondered how to make those. I love that you have tutorials. I wish I had one also to share but not yet. I have just started a blog so maybe soon I will have one!!
