Super cute sewing tutorials

Have you visited Anna Graham's blog Noodlehead yet? If you like to sew things that are so cute you can't stand it, rush right over there. Here's her free tutorial for gathered clutches (also available as a PDF pattern with other styling options for purchase right here.)

Or maybe you want a little zippered pouch with a key ring. Tutorial here.

Maybe you want that zippered wallet to have some adorable detailing. Tutorial here.

Or maybe you want to sew a bike basket, a diaper keeper, a mail organizer, or a host of other useful things listed on Anna's blog. Go crazy.

To see the lovely things others have made from her tutorials, like Yellow Poplar's pouches above, visit the Noodlehead Tutorials Flickr pool.

These are really really cool. I have tons of odds and ends fabric that were leftover from when my mom made me a gorgeous black and white quilt. I've been trying to decide what I should do with them and I'm thinking this is a great idea to use up some of it. Thanks so much for sharing!

Lovely!

By the way: do you watch the soccer worldcup? And for which team to you cheer? The Netherlands?
We are orange ;)

construction_julie said...

What neat links! Thanks for posting Noodleheads. Now I have MORE projects to try out!

Jess said...

Dien, I'm afraid I'm not much of a sports fan. But if I cheered based on colors alone, I'd support the Netherlands every time!

I love this blog and all her patterns. :) So adorable. I can't get enough of hand sewn items that look so modern and chic and are totally easy to incorporate into everyday life!

I struggle working inserting zippers. However, watching your tutorial I believe that I can accomplish it properly and with confidence. Thank you!
