You hungry? I know I could eat. Here’s a roundup of my favorite FREE patterns and tutorials to help get you ready for mealtime:
1 + 2) With spring weather finally showing up here in Ohio, I’m ready for a picnic. Care to join me? Let’s get packed with this oilcloth lunch bag from Happiest Camper and matching reusable snack bags from Closet Case Patterns.
3). You bring the potato salad and I’ll bring the Lavern Utensil Wrap from Untitled Thoughts. I made my version (pictured right) using fabric from an old button-down, so this is also an excellent scrap buster!
4) Did you peep the embroidered napkin in that roll? I’ll teach you how to make your own in this easy cloth napkin tutorial, and I have to say, it is one of the most used items in my home for sure!
5 + 6) Two of my favorite kitchen essentials are comin’ at ya from A Beautiful Mess. First, this recipe card box is an easy DIY that comes with a free downloadable recipe card PDF. Then there’s this leather mason jar sleeve that is too cool to pass up. I think it would be really fun to fill the box with cocktail recipes and give them as a gift set. What do you think?
7 + 8) Ok, can we just hand this post over to Heather Lou at CCP? Because she also has amazing tutorials on how to DIY your own produce bags and beeswax food wraps so you can pick up your groceries and store them sustainably.
9) If you’re like me and you can’t live without your morning coffee, then this pattern to DIY your own reusable coffee or tea filter from Selkie Patterns is a must for sure.
10) If you’re one of those cool people who’s been using your extra at-home time to learn how to bake bread, I salute you. Why not keep it in style by making your own bread storage bag?
