Here's what Terri had to say about her big tote tutorial: There have been times when I was in need of an extra large tote bag. I have smaller or average sized bags, but nothing very large. So I ended up packing my carry along items into a large plastic bag I had gotten at a local store.This was not the ideal bag for me. I wanted something
handmade and much more sturdy and fashionable. So I set out to make myself a large tote bag

Here's what Sue had to say about her fiber collage art cards: These fiber collages are fast, fun and easy to make and they are a great way to use up leftover bits of fabric, threads, ribbons, lace, novelty yarns, papers, silk or paper flowers. I've even used torn pages from old books, tea bag and candy wrappers! You can use anything in these collages that can withstand the heat of the iron.

Quilted Kindle Pouch

Here's what Terri had to say about her quilted Kindle pouch tutorial: I recently got a Kindle and I love it. The Kindle is a wireless reading device available through Amazon.com. It’s a great item if you enjoy reading, which I do. There are times when I’d like to take my Kindle along with me when I’m running errands. You never know when you might have to sit somewhere and wait for someone or something and it would be nice to have some reading material. The Kindle is a nice size to take along with me where ever I go. But I don’t like the idea of just putting it in my handbag, unprotected. I don’t want the screen to get scratched or damaged from other items in my purse or bag. So I decided to create a pouch to protect my Kindle.

These pouches make great gifts and they don’t have to be used for a Kindle. The pouches in this tutorial will hold the Kindle (Wi-Fi) and the Kindle (3G & Wi-Fi). If your wireless reading device has different dimensions than these Kindle devices, then you will need to alter the pouch dimensions.

Here's what Vicki had to say about her Droid/iPhone tutorial: When I first bought my Android phone I also got a free case. Of course you know it was a piece of junk so I immediately set out to make a new case. I lined my case with eyeglass cleaner fabric so that I could keep the screen clean.
