Free Stuff I love: Summer

There are hundreds of Christmasy kinds of free tutorials making their way around the blogosphere right now, and for that reason I thought I didn't really need to add to it.

SO, this being my last "Free Stuff I love" post of the year, I thought I'd get you set up for summer holidays.  Sorry if you live up North where it's cold.  If you do, just tuck these away for a while and before you know it, you'll be wanting to make them!

I've really enjoyed this little segment of my blog, although it is lots of work to put together posts like this every week.  I'm yet to decide whether or not I'll be doing 'free stuff' again next year, I need to think about it a bit more, but if not, I will most definitely still be here, just blogging about other stuff, thats all

Enough chit chat!  Here are some lovely free projects for you to enjoy over the holidays....

Cute summer slippers at Lady Harvatine


Summer picnic blanket at Sew Mama Sew

A gorgeous bag from vintage tablecloth by one of my all-time favourite bloggers Rubyellen of Cakies for Free people.

If you're feeling confident, a child's tent at Sew Mama Sew!

I LOVE this!  A very cool crochet summer sling tote.  Get it at ravelry here.

Can't go past this gorgeous baby sun hat at Purl.

That should do it for now!  Enjoy everyone, and I will be back soon for a couple of final posts for the year.

  1. love the slippers and the crochet bag! thanks for this segment, very useful. i hope you decide to do it again next year, and maybe to make it a bit easier you could do it monthly rather than weekly? :)

  2. Yes, Yes, Yes! I agree with Yana, once a month sounds like a great idea. I love your free stuff segment and would be so sad to see it go. You probably don't realise this but I constantly go back and forth thru the months to get inspiration. I simply adore it and thank you so much for all your hardwork in the research so I don't have to do it;)

  3. Me too, I love the slippers (the fabric somehow looks familiar to me, but I can't remember where or when I saw it) and the crochet sling tote! Need to bookmark these for summer, which is still a long way to go for us - they just announced the first snow of the year, here in Paris...
