Attempts and Outcomes : Heart Shaped Pin Cushion From Country Living Magazine

Since I am on a “Country Living” kick I thought I would share one of the heart-shaped pin cushions that I created.  They included instructions in the February issue or you could do as I did and get them online.  I wanted to make this cute sewing notion for my mom’s Valentine’s Day gift.  For…

Sewing and Crafts : Rag Rug Pillow

My subscription to Country Living finally started and I received my first issue (March 2012) a couple of weeks ago.  I used to get this magazine regularly, but once my Little Guy got a bit older it became very difficult to read more than a snippet of anything.  I found my magazines piling up all…

Fun Fabric Friday : Happy Notions

This week I just happened upon the Etsy shop, Happy Notions, owned by Nicole Sarvay and found it to be exactly as the name implies – SUPER HAPPY! Nicole sells vintage and reclaimed fabrics and most of what she has available is bright and cheery. Scrap Pack I found myself really drawn to the fun daisy print fat quarters…

The List – 2012

Back in January I made a list of sewing, craft and art accomplishments I would like to make this year.  I thought it might be nice to recap where I am in that process….especially since I feel like I have not done anything lately! 1. Pajamas Check! 2. Drawstring pants for my Little Guy – I…

Attempts And Outcomes : Pajamas

Fun Fabric Friday : A Modern Twist Valentine’s Day

First up a super cool Rabbit and Heart print from Holli Zollinger. Love Stuck by Heather Dutton of Hang Tight Studio reminds me…

Sewing And Crafts : Valentine’s Day Cards

Today I shared our plans for my Little Guy’s preschool classmate Valentine’s Day cards over at Kitsch Designs.  During my search for ideas I came across several neat versions of sewn Valentine’s Day cards too.  It got me to thinking that I might need to put together something for family, not just the classmates, with all the great…

Cool Shop : Astrid Weigel

In my never-ending search for cool fabrics and neat shops with creative handmade items I stumbled upon this little gem called, Astrid Weigel.  Astrid hails from Glasgow Scotland and she creates some of the prettiest and somehow both vintage and modern styled products.  Not only does she have some lovely finished items for sale, but she…

Cool Shop : Cozy Blue

I came across a product from this shop through another blog I love reading, Our Humble A{Bowe}d.  Cozy Blue is a shop full of tree related items and, well, I have a thing for trees.  In fact, I had to stop buying artwork from craft fairs for a while because I found myself wanting to…
