100 free tutorials and patterns

Thanks to Purpe Photokitty I was able to fix the problems I had with formating ... at least for now. Thank you so much! 


for sewing, crocheting, knitting, crafting ...

 Wow, so here they are!!! All the favourite links from the commenters to my Sew Mama Sew giveaway.

Okay, I did enter 4 myself. As some links came up several times there were 96 links all together. I just thought 100 sounded better. ;-)

Thanks to all you guys who entered and put in a link! 

And sorry, I meant to use pictures ... but then there were so many comments and so many links to copy and paste and edit ... that I simply did not bother about the pics.
Hope you are going to forgive me!
In the end I figued the post does however need at least one picture - so I decided I am going to put up the picture from that post that came up most often: :-)

It was the  
gathered clutch tutorial from Noodle head

I just was not sure what would be most helpful so I left it at that. But if you have something that you think would work better, just leave a comment - and I will do it. :-)

Wow! Great job with the tutorial list! I sympathize with your formatting issues - I often get frustrated when trying to format my blog posts. Especially moving pictures around. I think the list is great, the categories made sense and the list was easy to look through. Thanks again!

Jessica said...

Thanks for putting this together, Ms. Muffin! I already bookmarked it to come back to when I need to sew a gift. Happy New Year! :)

Papgena Made It said...

WOW! So much work!!
It will be fun to explore every link!

Purple Photokitty said...

I was looking at your post's source code and where there are strange breaks there are extra "break codes" in there. You might need to adjust the post using html.

Wendy said...

thanks for this list, it's great! Now I just need to find time to have a look at each and every one!

Nancy Sue said...

What a nice gift! Thank you for the time it took for you to compile the categories no less! Awesome!!! Big Thank yous!
Happy New Year!
