Trash Talk

Guess what?

This is post no. 514! Random I know but I have to get excited about something

How did that happen? How have I had so much to say?

So in honor of you sticking around and reading my dribble (and to wish you a very Merry Christmas) ... I have a free tutorial for you (finally they say in unison).

I found this great site called Scribd (and it's free) that will host your documents for you. I figured out that I had to purchase more software to create a PDF (not gonna do that) so I just created a word document instead.

The pictures are two of the bags I made for Christmas presents. Remember this picture? That gives you a peek at the inside.

If you find any mistakes please let me know (I already found one and corrected it). So, let's talk some trash, shall we? Here's the link to the tutorial. If you make one let me know - I'd love to see what kind of trash you come up with ;-)

PS - if you just can't scratch out the time for one of these check out Allyson Hill's Etsy shop. Her bags rock.

Those are really cute! What a great gift idea, too. I wish I had boning on hand...

I love it Adrienne! I just might have to make one for my car, and maybe even one for my daughter's car too! My husband is so neat in his car that he wouldn't need one :)

Where can I buy boning? Joann's, Michael's, any suggestions? And how does it come? Rolls, yardage? I've never used it.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your lovely little family!

The fabrics are great....I just went to the scribd site and checked it out. I just may make one of these. I'm glad you figured out how to get your tutorial out there.

Oh, must do this after Christmas! I've been wanting to write a tutorial, didn't want to buy any more software. Thanks! You're a peach!

LOVE the pattern, thanks! but have you ever heard of CutePDF? it's a free download [] and you can create your patterns in Word and then go to "FILE>PRINT" and it saves it as a PDF! i LOVE it! i save tutorials all of the time that way..., mostly because i'm afraid the website will disappear when i want to use it :) i've used it for over a year and never had a problem with it, best free thing i ever downloaded!

Hi, I just went to Scribd to download the tutorial for this great project....but I can't get it to download because it says I have to either pay for an account or upload a there any chance you can email it to me please? Google Docs is a totally free (to you and the person downloading) host site for documents. My email address is beadnv (at) westnet (dot) com (dot) au Thanks, hugs Naomi
