Check out this awesome blog (design mom.com), with an awesome giveaway! I just found it from a friend's blog telling about the giveaway and I got lost in it for awhile... I'm going to have to go back through the archives!
I wanted to show off the coverlet and pillow shams that I made for my wrought iron day bed in my guest room. I found this fabric on sale at Home Fabrics for such a great price and I bought it not knowing what I would make out of it. It was such an easy project and I love the way it turned out.
This is another idea I got from my sister-in-law. I bought the cheap little wooden letters from Roberts (I was lucky enough to get them al in the first try), quickly painted them and then sanded them.
My sister-in-law painted hers with a light color, then a dark color so you would see the light color when you sanded it. I just did it with one coat so I could see the wood.
I love this project. It took me probably 20 min at the most. My sister-in-law actually had them glue onto a board covered with fabric and then put them in picture frames (without the glass of course). It was so cute, but I didn't have the motivation to go that far so I just stuck them on the wall with sticky tack.
I finally finished something! I can only do short projects anymore apparently. Tonight, I whipped up some new lovies after almost losing one. I made a miniature version of the brick pattern quilt (tutorial found here) Put some super soft Minkie (aka cuddle flat) on the back with some taggies out the side and we are good to go...one for the baby and one for the wash! I just adore this Woodland Bloom fabric still...if only I could have bought a whole bolt of all of the fabrics in the line. *sigh*
