So, I'm sharing some of these great projects here. Maybe you'll get inspired to try one out??
I have actually tried this project from craftzine for a ruffled cardigan. However, I made ruffles for a small tote I use as my lunch bag. Did I not post those pictures here? That's a shame because it is damn cute.
The project shown above is from Martha Stewart - it's a bag made from a pillow case. Since I have a mountain of vintage pillowcases lying around, I thought this would be a perfect easy project.
This is another one I have tried. I put it together while watching Role Models with the husband one night. Movie, not so great. Totally recycled basket, awesome!
While not technically a tutorial, I recently stumbled across designers toolbox. If you are a lay designer like me, it's a goldmine of helpful measurements, templates, and ideas.
