Top 100 Tutorials of 2008

best-of-20083

Happy New Year!  Here’s a list of free tutorials and craft projects from 2008 to inspire you to create something in 2009.  Projects pictured above noted with asterisks in the list below.

I’ve sorted the tutorials by category to help make some sense of this list, but otherwise they are in no particular order.  I’ve tried to include all of my favorite blogs and tutorials from the past year, but I’m sure that I’ve made some omissions. There are many sewing tutorials, plus lots of other crafty projects. So go make something!

Thanks to CraftWhip UpDesign SpongeSew Mama Sew and TipNut for pointing me to some of these great projects.
