I'm always on the lookout for good textures, as they are pretty subtle but can add a lot of life to your site. Recently I found Tileables (http://tileabl.es/) which looks pretty cool.

Can you recommend any other good sites for textures, or make-your-own-texture tutorials?

Each of these has different licensing requirements so you'll want to make sure to check those before using anything off these sites.

This is an old link but in case anyone is still looking, www.episcura.com is a nice royalty free texture site that has lots of seamless images, HDRI and some stock photography as well. Worth checking out.
