Here is easy access to the tutorials I've published on Just Pure Lovely. Some of these are really more like explanations of my process as I go about creating things, and not really worthy of the title "tutorial," but you may find them useful anyway. Check this page now and then, as I follow my whims, so will add more tutorials quite often, I hope. ~ Lori
in minutes, maybe seconds, you can make several sachets to toss into the dryer load
This project is simple, easy, and quick. You don't even need to sew.
I made a little scarf for our 6yo with the simplest of patterns. The scarf, made of 100% variegated blue cotton, has a pretty woven look.
If you have access to a scroll saw, a puzzle can be made quickly, using cardboard, acrylic paints, and the saw! Our 13-year-old designed and created the one in the tutorial.
Here are the instructions for a pretty ruffled apron. This can be created in an afternoon, with time left over for tea!
I'm new to quilting, but in this post, I write a tutorial of the process of creating a Disappearing Nine-Patch quilt. Photos of each step are included in this post. This is, amazingly to me, my most popular post on Just Pure Lovely.
Our 8 year old daughter drew a picture of her kitten then embroidered it. Photos and full instructions included.
This was a simple project: Hanging a frame by ribbon (but there is a secret). Instructions included in the post.
How to Sew a Fabric Cover for My Gazelle Needlework Frame
A board on my needlework frame was ugly after a decade of use. I sewed a simple cover for it. This simple method would work on all sorts of things, like a notebook cover, for example.
This was a quick project of sewing 2 pieces of fabric together with batting between then hand-tying it and hand-embroidering our son's name on a corner.
Our 10 year old is knitting a hot pink boa for her little sister who adores playing "dress up."
This isn't a tutorial so much as a photo series of how one artisan created spinning tops for us at a festival.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me! I'm at loriseaborg @ gmail.com (moosh all that together). I'd love it if you shared your photos of completed projects with me, and I'd love to see your tutorials, too. Everyone is creative!
