Get your craft on: great tutorial finds

As a friend of mine says when something is neat, surprising, and/or worthy of a wow: Oh my head!  

So many great blogs I visit have recently posted tutorials right up my crafty little alley this past week.
1.  Snazz'ed up tea towels.  I believe Katie at Paisley and Polka Dots had me at the ruffles when she featured this ridiculously easy tutorial.  This project can easily replace my awful towels shamefully hanging on the oven door in a jiff.

2.  Fabric flowers.  It was always a mystery to me as to how those cute fabric flowers were made, until Amy at Little Bunny Feet threw the door wide open on that little secret.  Holly at Into Ablivia jumped right on it, too.

3.  Little mouse pad.  Most of us have optical mice these days, nearly rendering the esteemed mouse pad useless.  But maybe it's because of those "ancient" rollerball days that I still like having a mouse pad underneath my mouse.  Enter a new fav blog of mine: More Misadventures who entertains me not only with her craft skills but also with photos of real, live chicks on her ironing board

4.  Lollipop flowers.  Having small kids of my own, crafts don't have to be complicated and I was reminded of that with Emily's post about these lollipop flowers she created with her classroom little ones.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Love these tutorials...I can always use them! My house is turning into a disaster of fabrics, instructions and mess but hey, I'm going to be crafty!
