Moving on to bigger and better blogging

Hi guys - it's funny... I just got a few followers on this blog and bam! I have been working hard on starting up a new personal site with a blog included...

You can find it here...

http://yarn-or-fabric.weebly.com/crafty-blog.html

This blog is going to go bye-bye in just a bit... there will be no more updates to the blog... or to the beginnings of my tutorial lists...
Please come and check out the new and incredibly improved yarn-or-fabric site. I have to say I'm really smitten with it - and already told my husband that I would like to change our business website a bit as well - I'm really impressed with the weebly site. I've been having a blast collecting links for it. If you sew - boy do I have some great tutorial lists!!

I hope to catch you all on the new blog - please leave messages there even if it's just to say hi!

Wristlet Round Up - A List of Free Wristlet Purse Tutorials

I belong to several yahoo groups for quilting - there's no surprise there, I know... This morning one of the ladies in one of the groups wrote in looking for a wristlet tutorial... so as I was compiling a list for her I thought - hey, I really need to compile a list here!
Some may be new to you as well! I will be adding to this list of wristlets - and creating more super lists in the future!

NoodleHead Zippy Wallet Love

Not all tutorials online are fantastic - in fact, a lot of them are just lemons - but I have to say that I love the Noodlehead Zippy Wallet tutorial. I've made three so far - okay, two that I deemed worthy... One I actually chucked since I don't know what I was thinking when I was sewing it together and decided that it would take longer to rip it apart and fix it than to just remake it from scratch.

I give the Noodlehead Zippy Wallet tutorial two thumbs up!
http://noodleheads.blogspot.com/2009/10/zippy-wallet-tutorial.html

It's quick - taking about 30-45 minutes to whip one of these bad boys out.
It's a well written & photographed tutorial.
Yeah, it's a keeper :)


The one on the left is for my friend, Karen. The machine embroidery design is courtesy of Urban Threads over at http://www.urbanthreads.com/
I made hers a wee bit bigger to give the embroidery design a bit of breathing room. I didn't want it to be all cramped and all!!

The butterfly one is for me - I just loooove that fabric!! I added that super cute button on the little card-securing flap. It just matches perfectly!

Shhh! A Sale is Around the Corner!!

I have been very quiet the past few months but I have been very busy! Caron has been keeping me on my toes with project after project so there has been little to report in CraftyDeb.com land.

I have just been asked to do a few more projects for Caron that are on a close deadline so sadly those have to take priority before I get back to designing for the site - although I might have a few tricks up my sleeve - I have one project that has been haunting me in my sleep so I’ll be working on that one shortly… Considering how much I have envisioned it I do believe it will flow off the hook :)

But the big news… A sale is around the corner according to my inside site building source…. Can’t say when but I will say it’s coming up!
