Fresh Picks for Wednesday, 5.25.11

Wow! We’ve been pretty busy with Giveaway Day! (Entries open through Friday.) Between approving comments and entering giveaways ourselves, there’s been little time for leisurely blog reading. Amazingly, we’ve managed to scope out some inspiration for this week’s Fresh Picks!

Kids' Dress at Real Photography

Sweet Prints: Traci blogs about Kid’s Sewing at her blog Stolen Moments, with a pattern review and excellent photography!

Spool Toy @ A Little Gray

Upcylced Spools: What to do with old spools? Play with them, of course! Jessica shares her tutorial for a spool stacker toy at her blog, A Little Gray.

Butterfly Bookpage Wreath

Online Quilting Class

Flutter By: We couldn’t help but notice this butterfly and book pages wreath at Mama Says Sew. Brilliant!

Plant Labels @ FW&MP

Let’s Ketchup: Katie at Food, Wine and Mod Podge shows off adhesive vinyl plant labels she made using the Silhouette. Check it out!

Vendor Applications

Host a Craft Show: We’ve found some more great tips at DFW Craft Shows! This time, it’s an explanation of how to promote your craft fair to vendors, and all about vendor applications!
