  35. Love all the tutorials. I'll have to go back and look at them all. :-)

    It would be nice to see text for what the tutorial is, either on the photo or when you hover over the picture. Right now it does have some text, but you have to hover and wait for awhile.

  42. I had no idea you had so many tutorials......I really like the knit baby blanket and mitts.....need to make those for my gifts for every new baby. The chalkboard mats are wonderful. All of your ideas seem to be perfect for my grandchildren. I sure hope I hands on your giveaway...so much fun to be had!! Kristy

    ReplyDelete
  43. Free tutorials are so amazing! Thank you. I love the idea of flat dolls. I should make some for my daughter. I have a comment about the main menu page for the tutorials. I found it a bit tedious to have to click on each image to see what the title of the tutorial was. It would be much nicer for a text description to be included on that first page.

    The placemats are a great idea. I didn't know there was such a thing as chalkboard vinyl. Where would one source it? Thanks so much for sharing!

  44. As the mother of two little boys, this project is perfect for them! I can't wait to make these mats! Thanks for the great tutorial and giveaway!

  49. Hmmmm, I have two favorites.... I've made the Burp Cloth and Bib set as a gift and loved how they turned out. I also love the little Fla temelie and Matt paperdolls!

  63. This will make a great gift for my granddaughter (5) and for my students to use in the classroom to practice spelling words or math facts. Anything different will make it fun and not a chore! I'm going to make the Island Cookie recipe this week. What about dried pineapple in place or the cranberry. I think I need to make a recipe using each. Thank you Anglea and congratulations on your book!!!!!

  71. Angela, I love your new tutorial, actually I love ALL of you tutorials. Your Princess and the pea quilt is the cutest idea I've ever seen.

  83. This is such a great tutorial. I made a similar playmat when I first discovered chalk cloth. Back then, I only had charm squares, so it's tic tac toe style. I love the one large piece for all types of coloring and games. Fresh Fabric Treats is one of my go-to books for inspiration. Good stuff! Thanks!

  84. Love this placemat tutorial - I have some chalkboard fabric and have been waiting for a good pattern for it! It is hard to find the little chalk here - I can only find the sidewalk chalk.
