Have you seen.....

a really cute tutorial?

Yesterday was guild day and as I handed over my check for our annual retreat I was told asked if once again I would have a cute project.... um....sure!

Now I need your help...

I can't find one... of course I really haven't searched and searched exclusive to everything else in my life... but maybe? you have seen a cute little something out there that would be perfect for us to make?

One year we made the cute baskets from Pink Penguin and last year we made my market bags and donated them to a Woman's Crisis Center.

So this year??

Let's sweeten the deal...

If you send me a link to a cute project and we actually use it...I will send you the market bag I made in that tutorial...

I just saw few pincushions I'm tempted to do:

I have other ideas, too, only because if I find something too cute, I tag it! BTW, the last connection, "Polka Dot Pineapple", lives and breathes cute ideas, check her out.

Then, there are simple table runners, zipper bags and a lot of other projects that could be done in an afternoon get together, if that's the kind of thing you are looking for.

Sounds like fun, hope you find what you are looking for. Pokey

Good luck, I'm sure you'll find something.

My group does that every retreat, usually it ends up being a bag or pouch so I have a heap of tutorials saved up. It looks like you have a ton of suggestions.

I have an idea for a journal cover from a LQS. I have to work out the bugs. When is your retreat?

Have a great day.
