Great tutorial site: BYM Selbermacher.

Are you as obsessed with tutorials as I am? One site I keep coming back to for years is the craft section of BYM.de called "Selbermacher".
They have free tutorials for numerous "fresh" projects and usually you don't need to buy a truckload of expensive supplies to make them. Look...

...a tea pot trivet from felted beads...

...and they even have a diy version of Ingo Maurer's famous (and insanely expensive) "Zettel'z" pendant light.

Two things I'm definitely going to make in the near future...

... no-sew shopping bag...


aufmacher
...and these fantastic zipper flowers.

The site is in German, but the tutorials are well illustrated with pictures so you'll be able to figure out what's going on.

... and I always wondered who the heck buys at these market stands that sell dentists' and surgeons' tools... I guess I will have to be the next customer...

@P: Home surgeries? Buying tools for a realistic children's doctor's kit? :) I could never understand it either, nor wanted to know which hospital is now missing several scalpels...scary!

Ach, die Brigitte Young Miss hab' ich ja eh so geliebt! Einer der wenigen Zeitschriften, der ich nachtrauere.... :(

Der Themen-Mix war immer super! Muss wohl mal wieder öfter die Website besuchen... tolle Tipps!

@ fräulein herz: Ich hoffe, die Internetseite wird nie eingestellt...
