Turban Headband by Dottie Adele at Shrimp Salad Circus

Valerie, the super sweet – and incredibly talented – mastermind behind Sewing 101 on Shrimp Salad Circus, just so happened to have an adorable baby who she calls AA. They’re a beautiful family, and the little man’s even a budding artist! Since I’m fairly wretched at sewing anything more than a straight line, you’ve probably noticed a hiatus in sewing posts. I’m actually working on teaching myself some more of the basics, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a handful of the cutest projects floating around for absolute beginners.

That’s right – these projects are all rated for novice sewists, so don’t be intimidated! They all feature a free pattern or don’t need one at all. Enjoy, and be sure to leave a comment on the individual project posts for the talented ladies who created them!
