Good morning all - it's Tuesday Tutorials time again!
This week I have picked out three little gift ideas from last week's linky.

First up is the adorable crochet fox brooch by Marvellous Mad Madam Mel . This is quite possibly the most detailed tutorial I have ever seen with photographs for every step (damn near every stitch!) which is great for still 'getting to grips with it' hooker like me :-)
I also loved Hodge Podge Craft's Easy Framed Wordcloud Gift idea - you can produce a fab wordcloud with the help of a website (link in tutorial) then frame it and you're done! Gifts don't get much easier to personalise and, as she suggests, this would make an awesome Father's Day gift idea that the kids can get properly involved with!
And talking of gifts kids can make - The Happy Creations linked up a wonderful Pringles box upcycle - decorated Pringles tubs make great storage and I know Roo would love to get stuck into this craft idea. Pinning and storing this idea for next Christmas...

So there you have my picks from last week. Don't forget to pop over to my fellow hosts blogs - Kate at Crafts on SeaGude at Hodge Podge Craft and Anna at In the Playroom -  and check out their favourites too.

This week I am linking up a very easy reversible tea-towel that matches the quilted pot holder from last week. Now it's your turn - here's a recap of the rules for those of you who are new to Tuesday Tutorials!

  • Link up ONE post a week - it can be any kind of creative tutorial, how-to or recipe at any level from pre-schoolers to pro. It doesn't have to be a new post from the last week so use #Pintorials to revisit some of your best tutorial posts!
  • Please follow the Tuesday Tutorials Pinterest board . 
  • Please also follow the hosts on Pinterest - AnnaGudeKate and me - this is not essential but would be appreciated!
  • Try and visit at least three other blogs on the linky and leave a comment or pin some of their fab tutorials to your own boards. You could use the #pintorials hashtag to let them know you found them via the linky. You can also use the #pintorials hashtag to highlight your post on other social media if you chose.
  • Feel free to add the badge to your post or your side bar
