I am ashamed to say that I haven't managed to prepare a tutorial for this post as I really had hoped I would. I'm going to play the 'I just got a new house and job' card. Along with the 'I'm wary of telling people how to do my stuff in case they make loads of money from it/ do it better than me' card. I would like to post more tutorials, but I am rather protective of a lot of my patterns. They are like children to me...I slaved over them!

Anyway, there are some absolutely fantastic tutorials for all sorts of wonderful things out there already...

Here are a selection that I have bookmarked on my browser:

I made these dolphins and the dinosaur from the tutorials on Nuno Life. There are some really amazing free patterns and tutorials for stuffed animals among other things! Clearly Runo doesn't worry about sharing these things like I do...

I have used this nice simple baked cheesecake recipe to produce my own yummy cheesecakes! Cheesecake is my absolute diet downfall...

I had great fun jazzing up my earphones using this tutorial at Kiss Me Awake.

Following this knitting pattern I made a nice head warmer to keep my ears cosy walking dogs in the cold weather! (Note, that I have very little knitting experience).

Finally, this post from Cute n Cool Freebies showed me how to add a link in the comments that I post on other people's blogs. I looked it up at the beginning of the A to Z Challenge and it has been invaluable - it is so much easier for people to click on a direct link to my blog than have to search for it on my Google + page.

These are just a small selection, I have many many more tutorials bookmarked, some of which I refer to quite often to remind myself how to do certain techniques and things.

I hope you have enjoyed looking through them and maybe feel inspired to find a tutorial for that item that you really want to make, but don't quite know how...

Thanks for visiting :)


  1. I love felt work, so it was really exciting to see your post today! Thank you for sharing!

    Happy A to Zing!

  2. I admit to a slight Pinterest addiction...mostly because I love food and there are so many great recipes floating around the internet! Those are my personal favorite kind of tutorial :)

  3. I don't blame you I would be leary to share too!! But I doubt they would do better!! The little dinosaur is ADORABLE!!!!!!
    A to Z-ing to the end
    Peanut Butter and Whine

  4. I don't know which I like better, the little dolphins, or the stegosaurus!

    Sell your patterns on Etsy. I've always thought it was a cool idea, but never quite gotten around to it.
