When it’s the first day of vacation and you have a million things to prepare – cook, bake, pack, plan, shop, sew, wrap and Instead your take the boys on a bike ride to the lake because that is the only thing that really matters 🎄🙏🎁💕
The Holiday collection and the Floral collection. On sale in my Etsy shop! Perfect for saying Thank you to teachers and colleagues this Christmas season!
Super excited about my new little chalkboard that I made and can use for seasonal and holiday decorating!
I used the top of a wine box and Martha Stewart chalkboard paint.
I sanded both sides of the box lid and the edges and painted both sides with two coats each. I can now use the two sides to embellish with verses, quotes and chalkboard art.
My boys also have a black chalkboard, so I decorated theirs for Halloween!
A la Vanessa Bruno style, I made my very own sparkly sequins tote bag. Looking forward to using it for work Monday!
Sewing saves you money, sew it yourself, handmade, custom made, Vanessa Bruno style, sequins tote bag, sparkly tote, atelier cabas, sew every day.
I made these two pillow covers to use up some scraps from the scrap basket, left over from projects made thru the years. As usual I added a zippered backing and fun colourful ball fringe.
I love having a couch full of handmade patchwork pillows!
I participated in another swap, the falling for fall swap! Swaps are great because you get to make new sewing and quilting friends, exchange ideas and learn to techniques!
I taught myself these two projects, inspired by quilters on Instagram. These patterns are from two different books, but by the time I would have received an order of them, the swap would have already been finished! So I had to wing it!
The pumpkin Maple leaf was hugely inspired by @cloverandviolet and @sewdeerlyloved Kerri Horsley’s book, Lovely Little Patchwork: 18 Projects to Sew Through the Seasons.
The pin cushion was inspired by the ones a swap buddy @michelleskreations made and is the Deluxe Pin Cushion from @fabricmutt Heidi Staples’s book Sew Organized for the Busy Girl: • Tips to Make the Most of Your Time & Space
And I added a few extras!
