 It's Turkey Time again so I thought I would share some Thanksgiving sewing projects and craft ideas I found to add a little warmth to this holiday season.

DIY Fall Scrap Wreath Tutorial from Making it with Danielle

 We have some wonderful fabrics at 4my3boyz.com that would work well for this project!



I love this tutorial from Rebekah Martin at eHow.com


These Patchwork Acorn Potholders would make a wonderful hostess gift! You can see how to make them with a tutorial from Amanda Niederhauser at the Therm-O-Web Blog

Here are some additional Holiday Fabrics that would be perfect to use for this project!

DIY Fat Quarter Projects for your Electronics

I thought I would share with you some DIY ideas for your electronic devices using a fat quarter of fabric. I have included links to tutorials for each of them and some fabric suggestions from our unique collection of novelty fabrics available by the fat quarter at 4my3boyz Fabrics. Check these out!

E-reader, Nook or iPad Stand

What a cool E-reader, Nook or iPad stand by Rikka J.! She has a great tutorial in her blog Ricochet and Away.
This project uses 1 cotton fat quarter but could be done with a charm pack of 5" squares if you want to have more of a quilted look. You could use it to read recipes. For this purpose using oilcloth rather than plain cotton would work better.

This would look great with one of these fabrics from 4my3boyz Fabrics:

No-Sew Mouse Pad In need of a mouse pad for room-to-room roving with your laptop? This quick no-sew version can be made from fabric and cork. I found this tutorial at the blog Funky & Delightful.

How would it look with one of these fabrics?

Camera Cozy

I love this Camera Cozy. What a great idea to protect your point and shoot camera bumping around inside of your purse. Ashley has the tutorial on her blog Mommy by Day Crafter by Night.

I would love one made with one of these fabrics available in my store:

Cell Phone Case

Erin Erickson shares the tutorial for this awesome iPhone Sleeve in her blog Dog Under My Desk

Can you imagine how chic you would be with a phone case in one of these fabrics?
