Great Sewing Tutorials and Projects for Beginners

I promised my friend Jo that i would do some posts containing easy tutorials and ideas for beginners in the land of sewing. I recently lent her one of my three sewing machines (3 is just greedy isn't it!) and so far she has made a very funky cushion and somes bags and blankets for her daughter in Kindergarten. Now all i need her to do is make a blog and start posting pictures!
This cushion is super easy and has squared off corners

Pincushion at String Paper Cloth
Little Boxy Pouch by Three Bears

Easy Coin Purse at Split Yarn
Easy Drawstring bag tutorial at Curlypops

Stylish Pen Case at Pink Penguin

So there is a start Jo - get cracking,everyone please comment and link to any other great tutorials you love.

Great tutorials you have Chosen. You can't go wrong with a pin cushion and that one you have selected is a goodie. Love the boxy pouch - haven't seen that one before.

This tissue box cover tutorial by Kirin Notebook is a nice one to try too.
