Some Beginner Birthday Gifts - For Your Besties

At the moment, I am definitely in the 'amateur' crafter catagory. So inevitably I spend a lot of time browsing the rest of blogland in envy of all of the things I wish I could make.

Shortly after Christmas I bought a basic sewing machine and used two fantastic blogs to guide me through the following projects to make some birthday gifts for my lovely friends.

The first Sweet Verbena, is one of the funkiest sewing sites out there. There are so many gorgeous projects to try. I started small, making this pencil case for my friend who lives in Australia.


I filled it with fineliners (every teacher's dream!)


The second project I used was from That's My Letter. I love typography so this site ticks all of my boxes. I bet that it will tick yours too.  I made a fabric pouch for a good friend and filled it with nail goodies.



Both of these projects are clearly explained: perfect for a beginner.  So thanks for great tutorials guys. Please go and check them out and follow along.
