10 cute projects!!


One of my other most favorite things about blogs are the cute D.I.Y tutorials and downloadable freebies that I find on a weekly basis. I was looking through my "starred items" in my google reader and decided it would be cool to share with you some of my more recent cute project finds!!

So, here are 10 really cute projects that I found online:

1. I absolutely adore this nautical-inspired tank-top re-fashion.

I will definitely be making one of these this summer :)
You can check out the tutorial here.

2. Pugly Pixel always has cuuuute downloads.

I love this washi tape download but you should definitely check out her back posts to see all of the other cute ones. I have them all :)

3. I want to make a surprise ball soooo much! These are amazing!

I think I would actually rather buy one but it seems east enough to make and I can't even imagine how much fun these would be to open! Definitely check out this blog post with a video of one being opened and all of the magic it entails :)

4. Here is an awesome DIY on how to turn a nesting doll into a pin cushion!

love love

5. Here is a great link to tons of computer/wallpaper/blog/twitter backgrounds!
And here is another link to another stash of backgrounds!

I think it's time for me to switch up my twitter background soon :)

6. I am the complete opposite of a cat person BUT I love this little house D.I.Y. and I know that it would work the same with a sweet little chihuahua in it :)

Here is the tutorial on how to make it :)

7. Free mustache embroidery pattern anyone?? yes please!!

I can think of sooo many possibilities for these beauties :)

8. A tote bag tutorial from Rachel Denbow :)

I will be making a bag like this with cute waterproof material so that I can take it to the pool with me this summer. I love everything about this one!! Isn't that fabric amazing?

9. I am a firm believer that paper chains are a year-round must have. I have them all over my classroom and decorating the hallways at my school. They are pure magic to me. Here are some cute downloadable and printable "chains" with cutie pie patterns that you can use to create your own paper chains.

The button ones are my favorite :)

10. I'm not going to lie, I want like 1,000 of these!! I am a total recycle freak and I think that these are too stinking cute!

Here is the link to the tutorial on how to make these cute recycle awareness ribbons.

So, if you decide to make any of these things or create anything with the downloads, I would love to see. I would also love to check out any cute links that you have to tutorials or free downloads of things that you love!
Have a great Friday friends and a looooong weekend.
Tomorrow, most likely, entails a picnic with my mr. and SATC two!! I'm excited.
i love you.
