Monday's Features

Happy Monday!  If you have a blanket tutorial you are willing to share -- please email me! (amandablogs at yahoo)
Sew This.
I adore this shag pillow from V & Co.  Makes me want to make a pillow AND a rug!
Robert Kaufman has tons of free patterns on their website – including this tee pee.
Backpack, backpack.  Oh, how I remember all the Dora songs.  At Second Street has a backpack tutorial for you!
Craftiness is not optional has been participating in a series called Sincerest form of flattery – and I’ve oohhing and ahhing over everything!  Here is on e of the awesome knockoffs!  This Mini-Boden knockoff is from Little Girl Big Studio. Love the pockets!
And because we crafters can’t get enough knockoffs (do you think it’s because we can or because we just hate paying retail?).  Kojo Designs made an ADORABLE cardigan.  I would wear it!!
Craft This.
U Create with kids had a great post on how to make flip flops from –duct tape!  Courtesy of My World - Made by Hand.
So cute.  {Guest posted by Adventures in Crafting on Making The World Cuter}

The Crafty Mama Blog made this framed wreath – but I love the fact that her wreath is made from all of those plastic bags everyone has laying around!  Great idea!
Suzy’s Artsy Craftsy Sitcom made bracelets.  Out of Popsicle sticks.  Love.
Mod Podge Rocks made an awesome ticket bowl – with glitter.  Josh has a man teacher.  Kind of hard to make a teacher appreciation gift for a man teacher.  Well except food.  :) But I think  I may make a bowl and fill with movie stuff (popcorn, candy).  I just need to come up with a clever tag (feel free to help out people!) :)
Print This.
B.Nute has some sweet vintage Easter tags.
I’m kind of smitten with this sweet spring print from Peppermint Plum.  I found it posted over at Mine for the Making.
I love it all has a shirt for you to make!  Some Bunny Special.  How sweet!  Just print onto an iron on transfer.  Easy!
Keep Calm and Hunt on.  {The Hands On Housewife}
Are these lunch bags not awesome?  {}
Eat This.
We are pancake lovers.  I can’t wait to try Singing With Birds’ recipe for lemon ricotta pancakes!
Juice Box Dreams has a recipe for Easter cookies.  {Photo credit here}

Another food Easter story that is fun to do is the Resurrection Rolls.  {Feathers From My Nest}

Talkin Chow Playin House has a quick and easy lasagna roll recipe.  Oh I heart lasagna.  Call me Garfield.
Bake at 350 has such sweet birds nest cupcakes. 
Please make sure to go and visit the fabulous ladies at My Vinyl Designer!  They have some super designs just waiting for you to make!!

  2. These are really great ideas, Amanda! I know I've said it before, but you do a terrific job rounding up inspiring tutorials and projects. (I figured it might mean more if I told you on a post that didn't feature me. ;) )

  3. thank so much for featuring the bird's nest cupcakes!!! :)

  4. What a great selection! Thanks for featuring my Spring printable.

    Maybe for the teacher ticket bowl you could say something along the lines of... "You're my TICKET to success!"
