Linky Thursday

It may be back to school season, but it’s apparently time to sew cute stuff for your dog, too because I’ve been seeing a lot of new tutorials just for man’s best friend. Like this easy dog bandana, DIY pet collar (works for cats too!), and this great dog harness (this is part 2, you can follow the link in the tutorial for the first segment).

If you’re ironing board is looking worn, it’s time to make yourself a new one. This tutorial doesn’t just teach you how, it has a pattern too!

I remember when I first took up sewing, puff quilts were very popular…. look what’s back again!

This little bee plushy is a cute way to end summer sewing.

Just in time for back to school: a free ruffle skirt for girls.

This Walkabout Backpack is chock full of pockets and has a wraparound zipper so it will open nice and wide!
