Tutorial Tuesday: A roundup of projects to try

Tuesday, July 03, 2012
So, I'm midway in a bunch of crafty projects right now, and I think I'll be doing another photo day for the shop soon. But there's nothing new and awesome to show off at this exact moment. 

So, in the meantime, let's take a look (shall we?) at some tutorials that I'm adding to my longterm list of projects to try.

A Beautiful Mess recently made this lovely bag from a vintage blanket and leather scraps. I need to check out the Pendleton Wool outlet one of these days and make one of these suckers. I also really like how scrappy looking this project is. It looks homemade, and I think it works well.


My headphones are constantly tangled--it adds a few minutes on either end of every gym visit. I've seen  knitted and crochet versions of this idea, but I think I might go with the Free People friendship bracelet style. Very summer campy; can't go wrong. 


The Blue Velvet Chair blog has a lesson in making these notebooks from vintage novels. I haven't done any book binding in quite a while, but it's always a super satisfying project. I love the paste paper cover on the top one!
I need to make some Etsy Shop business cards to start handing out, so I've been keeping an eye on some of the creative DIY ideas out there. I really like IS Creative Studio's tutorial for spray painted cards. It's such a simple idea, but it has a pretty high impact--and of course, it would look especially cool stacked on the table at a craft show. 


As always, thanks internet! It never ceases to amaze me how many good crafty ideas are out there.
