pansysquareNostalgic NeedleART shows you an easy technique to make ribbon pansies or violas. You can use them as an embellishment on a crazy quilt block, a purse, or a shirt. The pansy is made with the fine wire removed from the edge of both the flower’s ribbon and the flower center’s ribbon. Be sure and look at her crazy quilt blocks. She’s posted one for a birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. A great idea for a quilt. You can order a CD of her vintage postcards that she uses in her quilt blocks.

DIY Style gives directions here.  Just make sure that when you purchase a bra for this project that you make sure the back of the bra is made with similar fabric or trim as the front. Nothing worse than having one with elastic that looks like your standard bra!

dsc_0341Bitty bits & pieces has posted this tutorial for her love notes heart. The pillows are like a little Valentine card mailbox (remember making those in school?) that you can hang on a chair, a doorknob, or a bedpost. Just stick your love notes in the pocket. At the bottom of the tutorials she’s posted some photos of hearts she’s made using decorator fabric, tassels, cording, braided trim, ribbons, and metallic charms.

6a00e54ef5ba8e883301053701acdb970b-320piChickpea Studio has a new tutorial for a pocket bag. Chickpea loves pocket bags because they are useful in preventing scratches from other things in your purse, they can be made in any size with no effort, they keep things clean, they use up all kinds of scraps, they use a ponytail elastic that comes in a lot of color options, and they need a button but no button holes! That last one is the best reason to like pocket bags. She has two different tutorials listed: one is a PDF and the other is a Word document.

I hope you’ll try some of these great tutorials. Until next time!
