made is my absolute favorite sewing blog to date.  She's full of creative ideas and is seriously talented with a sewing machine.   She has a great variety of tutorials free to the general public, and even some patterns for purchase. 

Personally, I've made several projects based on her tutorials.  I'd like to share them with you now:

My first MADE project was Monogrammed Felt Ornaments

Next I made my son and daughter Hobo Sacks

I was so in love with these bags that I decided to make one for each of my sons little friends

I ended up using some semi-hideous corduroy fabric to make my son a pair of pants using her basic Kid Pant tutorial.  I wasn't happy with the end result, but they were still fun to make.

I even added pockets using MADE's Pocket Tutorial, though it's hard to make out the pocket in this photo.

For Valentine's Day I couldn't resist copying off of her Heartbreaker Valentines, although I did add a few different ones into the mix. 

I finally mustered up the courage to try using freezer paper to make a posterized image stencil.  I chose to do Shane Victorino of the Philadelphia Phillies.  I put the image on knit fabric, then sewed it onto the 90 Minute Shirt I made him.

The most intimidating project I did of hers was probably the recycled grocery tote bag.  I was worried that ironing the plastic bags would release certain toxins in the air, but I went for it anyway.  God knows I had/have plenty of grocery bags in my pantry just waiting to be made use of.

When I saw this incredible robot fabric I knew I'd be making my son and husband matching PJ's.  I made my sons pants using MADE's basic kid pant tutorial.  I used a pattern to make my husbands PJ pants.

For a friend I made a couple crib sheets using the crib/toddler bed tutorial

A summer scarf seemed only appropriate.

The Shirt Dress tutorial is one I had my eye on from the beginning.  After nearly 10 months, I made a couple. 

Last, but not least, Sprinkle Shirts.  I made a "T" shirt for my son and an "e" shirt for my 1-year-old second cousin.

Am I done making stuff from her website?  Heck no!  Will I continue to cyber-stalk her projects?  Yes.

As I said, hers is my favorite sewing blog out there!
