Tutorial Monday

christmasthroughtheyearbutton  Darlene and I are so excited.  We had 25 people play along with us this month.  There were so many wonderful presents made and tucked away for Christmas.  Darlene has Mr. Linky up on her March 31 post so you can check out the projects.

Did someone say TUTORIALS??!!    It has pretty much become my obsession looking for tutorials. Thanks to Pinterest that job is pretty easy.  While we were on vacation Mr. P. even drove me to McDonalds so I could use their WIFI and have a fix for finding some tutes…what a guy :-)!!!   Once again if you do decide to make one of these wonderful projects make sure to link back to the project creator.   I am so grateful every month for our talented crafters who let me use their pictures to share with you and link up to their amazing projects.….so here we go!!!

Here’s two wonderful projects from Lori at Bee In My Bonnet.  First off 189854940511473880_3f90pNaI_b these so darn cute Apron Bottle Covers.  Project instructions here.   And a very cute Lined Travel Bag189854940511473875_cTEeWprW_b ..
