I think I like bunting. Maybe even … REALLY like it. Continue reading
16 pairs of jeans and lots of fabric scraps = an heirloom quilt for Poppets first birthday! Continue reading
I love blog surfing. It starts with finding a great blog that I peruse for an hour or so, before I get distracted by their exciting looking blog roll and I spend another few hours scrolling through all those blogs too.
A wonderful time waster but it’s so inspiring! There are so many talented people out there.
It was one such expedition that I found “How About Orange” and her wall decal post. At first it seemed quite astounding that you could iron stiffened fabric onto a wall. I mean, how did someone even discover that? Was it by accident? Yet, I’m loving the idea. How cute would an elephant shape or child’s name on a nursery wall look, cut from your favourite fabric. It’s genius!
It won’t damage your walls, removes easily and means you don’t have to spend big $$’s on fancy store bought decals.
Check out her post here for more inspiration and a full tutorial. I haven’t tried it yet but it has quickly made it onto my to-do-list! Not to mention the blog has become a new fav of mine too. Thanks Jessica!
Why not turn your fabric scraps into works of art? Continue reading
Table runners are so wonderfully simple to make and can really change the look of a room.
This fabric was given to me a few months ago and came all the way from Zimbabwe! It’s so gorgeous and the print had the perfect dimensions for this project. Continue reading
I never realised how incredibly easy, yet satisfying, making cushions are. I had to go out and buy more cushion inners just so I could carry on the craze!
Toddlers and infants are so much fun to sew for. There are gorgeous fabrics available with fun textures and oodles of free ideas for projects to be found online. These toy “tissues” were a gift for my gorgeous niece who turned one this month.
I can’t believe that my 5 local bookstores have failed to stock this book! I’m yet to find anything else so yummy. At least my library is on the ball though and after excitedly picking up a copy this morning, I’ve already drooled over each page making it useless for anyone else!
heinous – adj; atrocious, abominable, unspeakable, horrific, detestable. The perfect description of my old tea towel supply!! Honestly, it was humiliating. I used to dread the dinner guests winning the battle to do the dishes for us.
Well, not anymore! If you come around for a meal, be prepared to have a tea towel shoved into your hands, ‘cause I’m very pleased with my new stash! It’s something so simple, yet can make the kitchen look clean and vibrant.
It’s a great stash-buster project to purge some of that fabric from the cupboard and can make fantastic housewarming or hens party gifts. Best thing is, you can never really have enough so double ups are no problem! The same sewing process can be used to make napkins, placemats and table cloths … so many possibilities! Continue reading
