Fabric Love – Upholstery Samples

I wish I could come by here more often, but with all the quarantined together time with family now I don’t seem to have as many opportunities as I would have imagined at the beginning.  As I was going along today, finishing up some work on placemat and napkin sets I had a momentary freak…

Fun Fabric Friday : Vintage Sheets

I haven’t done one of these in a while and I thought it might be fun to share some of my vintage sheet hoard.  I have been collecting and using vintage sheets throughout my home and in my sewing for many years now, but recently I have been unable to cut anything.  I don’t know…

Tweaks : Monogram Wall Plaque For A Nursery

Yep, more nursery tweaks for your enjoyment.  This one was so simple.  I only wanted to show it because I thought it might give hope to those of you out there, like me, that do not really have a budget for redecorating your spaces.  Plus, I think it came out really cute!  A little Holly Hobbie maybe, but…

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 Making Begins

I may or may not have noted here before that I am a list maker.  It’s to the point of needing lists to keep up with my lists.  And, I often make such a huge and unattainable list of things that I want or need to do, that I end up disappointed in the results…or…

Tweaked : Vintage Fabric Trimmed Hoodie Sweater

For the latest wardrobe tweak I performed some surgery on one of my old hoodie sweaters.  It’s a basic black hoodie with pouch pocket in front and I have gotten a TON of use out of this in the past.  I had in mind adding a placket down the front in a contrasting fabric, not only…

Tweaked : Vintage Fabric Sweater Revamp

As you all have probably figured out by now I have a large and ever-growing vintage fabric stash that I often rummage through, but rarely cut up and use.  Actually, I guess lately I have been going for it and using some pieces here and there.  But it has taken some time for me to get here and to…
