    Oh my gosh, so many projects so little time and how does one make the decision on which one to start first! LOVE the bermuda shorts idea!

  3. Dorte says:

    I am just now printing the pattern for the best bibs!!!

  4. katy says:

    the fabric brooch looks tdf! ambika has a keen eye for style

  5. Lynne in Hawaii says:

    These tutorials are great. I enjoyed reading the ‘writing’ on quilts.

  6. Libby says:

    Love the tutorials. Lots of great ideas.

  7. Kieny says:

    Love the new links. Thanks for putting them up!

  8. Teresa says:

    I love the jeans to bermuda shorts tutorial….gonna have to try it!

  9. min says:

    OK, the apron tutorial has a little tip in there about turning a narrow tie…it’s worthy of its own tutorial. It’s short and sweet, but covers a topic that many of us always wondered about. Very smart and usable for so many things.

  10. Liz says:

    OMG!! Where do I even begin??

  11. Reese says:

    That “Go Fish” tutorial is so great!!! Perfect sewing project for my grandson.

  12. Amy says:

    That apron dress is darling!

  13. Every one is so talented. That is a really cute apron dress tutorial. I would love to make one for my daughter.

  14. Lil' d says:

    Glad to hear that people are finding the jeans to bermudas useful. I figured that I can’t be the only one with old jeans gathering dust.

  15. LisaC says:

    I am totally making that casserole holder….and a matching dress for Sunday potluck fashion heaven!

  16. Lia says:

    The boot cut to bermudas tutorial is seriously *exactly* what I was looking for. I have a pair of cutoffs I cut off last summer (and the denim from the rest of the leg) and I’d been trying to figure out how I could neaten them up. I can’t wait to try this!

  17. BethieB says:

    I’m in l-o-v-e with the quilting tuts – the multi-stripe baby quilt as well as the “writing” (I’ve been sying to know how that’s done. Thought you had to have a fancy machine!) But, I have to say my fave is the apron dress, only because I know that my kid would live in this all summer with her bathing suit under, lol. Such wonderful ideas!!!

  18. apple cyder says:

    I love the “go fish” tutorial. Will put that on the list of things to make for xmas this year.

  19. Ashley H. says:

    I’m loving these! Especially the toddler bib and the roller coasters. Another great month on SMS!

  20. Leesa says:

    I love these tutes I am wanting to try the hobo lunch bag.

  21. Stephanie says:

    The jeans into bermuda shorts is exactly what I have been looking for for all my worn out jeans. Thanks!

  22. Sandy says:

    Love the ruffle pants!!!

  23. micki says:

    love the lunch bag! what a great idea and i’ve book marked it for completion later this week!

  24. min says:

    I think the little lunch bag looks easy and could give good fabric satisfaction! I’ve also added Ayumi’s blog to my faves…it’s new and I’ve seen other things from her and I think she’s someone to watch. Her camera case is lovely too and she has good clear pictures and instructions. Not bad for someone who doesn’t regularly speak or write in english!!!

  25. ayumills says:

    This is why we don’t need sewing books. There are so many talented sewists out there whose tutorials are even better than what we can find on sewing books.
    These are so beautiful, but what I have to try for sure is Roller Coasters. The coasters are very original and it seems easy to make them.
    I also like best bibs!

  26. Heather says:

    This is the best set of tutorials ever! There are three I want to try right now.

  27. Mary says:

    I’m really enjoying all these great tutorials!

  28. Amy W says:

    More great tutorials! Awesome!!

  29. Laura says:

    I think this might be the best batch of tutorials yet! I love that square bottomed bag and the casserole carrier! And the little apron dress is adorable. Thanks!

  30. skmparis says:

    Wow, such great projects, I’ll have to try them all!

  31. sara says:

    I love the tutorial for sewing a mirror into a bag and the tool tape on stretch fabrics tutorial is a great idea!

  32. They keep getting better and better!!! Yippie Skippie.. I wish I was at home to whip up some of these things.. but I will just drool at work on my keyboard… hey maybe it will short out and I have the perfect excuse to go home..hahaha! I wish!
