Getting Started - Christmas In July

So where to begin? I've made my list (when I have more time I'll share it with you) and I'm checking it twice ... Seriously - I do have a list and I am making duplicate items so I plan to take the 'assembly line' approach. I am going to do all my cutting (which I don't particularly care for) at once. This way when I sit down to sew, I can keep on rolling while the project is still fresh in my mind. What's your strategy?


Here are a few links to tutorials and other blogs that have some great resources:

My first set of gifts I am going to make are with these fabrics:




Two gardening totes should magically appear on a blog near you ...
