My favourite Finds May 2015

I found some more beautiful projects last month to share with you today. Enjoy!
 Beautiful projects I've found in May

I love love love this cute idea from Sadie Season Goods. I've seen lots of super cute pin cushions in tea cups but Sadie has used a teapot and you can keep other sewing essentials inside!
Isn't that adorable?

When my kids were small we would wrap ice pops, or "Tip Tops" as we call them here (this might be a very regional UK Midlands thing though) in just a bit of kitchen roll - or just let them manage without anything and risk moaning, dropping, slipping and other undesirable repercussions! These little fabric wraps are very cute and practical.
There is a full step by step tutorial over at Fynes Designs showing exactly how to make them - really doesn't look too difficult either.

I love these printable gift tags from Dawn Nicole. They would make great card toppers too, and they are free! 
Dawn's blog is packed with beautiful hand lettered typography, she really is super talented, definitely worth a look if you have a minute.

Josie from Sew for Soul has made this beautiful fabric notebook cover and then been kind enough to share a tutorial with us too!
I love the fabric combination, what a great gift idea. (or something beautiful just to make for yourself of course!)

And here is just one last minute bonus project I found late on last month. These are cakes. I repeat these are cakes!
How cool are they? Natalie from Doodlecraft actually makes them look pretty easy to make too.

  3. Great finds, Julie! At first I thought the cupcakes were really terrariums. I had to do a double take there!
