Easy, lightweight blanket tutorial
This tutorial is for a "summer blanket". It's a lightweight blanket that is very easy to sew. It takes maybe 30min tops to make. I thought that this would be a perfect blanket to make for the children that are victims in the Haiti disaster. Or if you know of someone in your personal life that may need one, for them too.

St. Patty's Day Brooch Tutorial
Here is a fun St. Patrick's Day brooch that you can make in 30 minutes. No sewing machine required (but you do have to hand sew). Make one for yourself or for someone special in your life; your daughter, mom, coworker, kids, sister, aunt, teacher, friend, the possibilities are endless. And try making it in different colors for different occasions! It doesn't take too many materials, and the ones that you do use are pretty inexpensive so it will be a cinch to make a handful of them.

Sewing Tutorial:Mini Tote Bag/Cute Lunch Bag/Gift Bag/Purse/Etc.
I loved the color of this dollar store bag, but I hated how plain and boring it was. Not to mention how big and flat. I found the second bag laying around the house and loved it's shape and size...so why not turn the blue one into a version of the other? It was pretty easy and the none-fraying fabric was great to work with. If your dollar store doesn't have the exact same bag, try looking for laundry bags or even t-shirts. The key is that you want fabric that won't fray.
