Casserole Carrier Sewing Pattern

I came across this free pattern just before the Holidays and thought it was so adorable that it had to be shared. I actually made one of these using this pattern. It turned out wonderful!! My husband's grandmother just loves it. What is truly amazing is that this pattern is from an 18 year olds blog site. What talent! The pattern is super easy, practical and makes a fantastic gift. I used Michael Miller Home Ec fabric on the outside and Michael Miller Kid Check Red for the inside. I also made my own binding out of the Kid Check fabric. Check out this free pattern and get sewing!

Updated Outdoor Cushions

I have a large family gathering scheduled for July and need to get my backyard in shape before the big event. Four of my outdoor cushions were so badly destroyed by weather and squirrels that I was ready to trash them and buy something new. With money being so tight these days, I decided to see if I could salvage any part of them. I tore off what was left of the fabric and was pleasantly surprised to see that the foam inserts were still in relatively good shape. I used some Waverly Bengal Sage Sun N Shade fabric and whipped up my own cushions in no time! I wanted something different so the tiger spots were an easy choice. It only took me about an hour for each cushion. Well worth my time and money savings.

Teen Room Decor With Black And White Prints

I recently surprised my step daughter with a "teenager update" of her bedroom for her 13th birthday. All the fabrics used were from my store. I love the black, white and hot pink combo. The walls are an apple green (Laura Ashley Apple 3) even though they look slightly yellow in some of the photos. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Thank you for looking!

Giraffe On Parade!!

We were so impressed with one customer's use of our Java Natural Giraffe print fabric that we wanted to share it. The fabric was used to cover a parade float for a pediatric care nursing unit. Giraffes were the float theme. Looks like they had a wonderful time and their float turned out terrific!!
