Link Love: 5 Tutorials I Want to Try
"You and I both know it's Meal Time."
This month's, Link Love theme is 5 tutorials I want to try. These are projects on my Crafty Wish List that I will get to someday. That is, if I can ever stop taking on new projects. Ahem.
As always, Link Love is a community sport. You're invited to post your 5 someday tutorials on your blog, and share the post link in the linky below!

Crochet on Plastic Canvas, by Sonia Maria
This talented Portuguese blogger has come up with a fascinating technique for crocheting right on plastic canvas, creating a ruffly surface that's also rigid. Follow the link to see two projects she designed. My mind explodes with possibilities!

Scrap Doodling, by Sherri Lynn Wood
One thing's true about my crafting style: it's orderly. I know it would be good for me to embrace more unstructured projects, and Sherri Lynn's videos are always so beautiful and encouraging; I could watch these all day. I can't wait for her forthcoming book!
Thai String Dolls, by Heidi Boyd

I love these little guys! Heidi's tutorial is a take on a traditional Thai craft, which she's simplified a bit. These figures are wrapped on chenille, so they're bendable. And all that wrapped yarn can easily be embroidered, appliqued, or felted on!

Mark my words, someday I'm going to make a blanket like this! Lisa has a whole series of tutorials covering every little bit of the process, and they're so helpful – and helpfully arranged on this single page of her blog. You might also like her post on how to tackle a big blanket project.

Necktie crafting is still close to my heart (although I have finally trained myself to stop buying ties every time I hit the thrift stores). I'd love to make a quilt or smaller project using this kind of Dresden form, and I like the method at this linked blog.
