  120. Jennifer N. says:

    I’ve already collected several of those tutorials this year, sitting in my “to do” list/pile. Maybe somebody needs to create a good way to store all of those patterns we hope to get to soon. I love them. I’ll get to them while I’m baking bread, playing with my 2-year old, doing my family history (typing letters my grandparents exchanged during WWII). Or, I’ll just sit here and imagine how cool those things are and go learn how to make pie in a jar. Thanks for everything!

    I’ve got so many little girls in my life right now – nieces, friends’ daughters, etc. – and they would all look so adorable in any of the Portobellapixie patterns.

  185. mommymae says:

    that pattern is so cute!

  186. Kristin L says:

    I think my favourite thing today might be the Tidy Tote, or the to-do list holder. Love Kristin’s choice of fabric today too!

  193. Kate says:

    I always think about making liners for ugly baskets and boxes, but it has never occured to me to just cover the whole thing, of course! Theses are all great.

  194. I absolutely love the pie in a jar. I have to give that a try!

  195. Erynn says:

    I’m going to make some of the crate covers for me. What a great idea!

  196. Kathleen says:

    I need to make a post office bag, and I think it would be *perfect* in the fabric Kristin chose!

  197. Katie says:

    Love all the ideas. We’re going on a road trip over the holidays and those back seat organizers look like a necessity, especially with two kiddos now. Thanks!

  198. Tammy Wittig says:

    Oh, those pies are so cute! The crates are such a good idea, too – they look much better after being covered with gorgeous fabric!

    Oh, those crates? Mine. Sure, this is supposed to be gift ideas, but we can gift ourselves, right? ‘Cause those crates would be great for my collection of Christmas mags, back issues of Victoria, back issues of Elle (the old ones with knitting patterns and recipe cards -swoon!), and back issues of House Beautiful and all those other bits of magazine love that I can’t bring myself to purge.
