Monday Funday!

Hey everyone!

Well, one of my greatest creations has arrived!

We actually still aren’t 100% positive on a name, but I will say she is so sweet.

I’m loving how little and cute she is and the other kids are fairly obessed with her.

Esther

She was born early Thursday morning, and she is such a gift!

I’ll be a little busy with baby and the other 5 kids, so inspire me with your projects,

until I have a bit more time to finish up my own!

Hey all!

I hope you’ve had a great week.

This week I shared a Spring blast from the past…..My Bloom Pillow.

The Bloom Pillow

Today was one of those days.
The days where you are just…so….tired.
One of those days where you let your kids watch PBS way too long,
and eat graham crackers for breakfast.
One of those days where you wish you had Netflix or Cable T.V. so you could zone out for hours.
However “unwonderful” the day was, it was the perfect day to be
…..working on a pillow!
and that’s what I did. I didn’t even use the machine. Just hand-stiched the entire thing,…
so I could sit, and sit, and sit…..and watch PBS with my kids.
OK, now I probably should be explaining the pictures of the tutorial, so you know how to make this if you want.
Really, if you want to recover the pillow like a “normal” person would, with a sewing machine, I would suggest it for the sake of time, but if you want to just ‘sit” and do a project, or if you’re lacking a sewing machine, start by cutting two material rectangles to cover the pillow. I used a white burlap that I tea stained.
Then I took ribbon for a little shine, and stuffed one peice of material over the other and then covered it (over the exhisting piping) with ribbon and stitched through all of it (shown below).
The back of this picture shows the ribbon stitched around the exhisting pipeing and material ends.
This process obviously involves some guesstimating and material trimming here and there. I would usually roll the top piece of material over once and then cover it with the ribbon before I sewed it up.
When it was all stitched up, I googled for “branch images”, printed one off and cut it out.
Then I took a RubADub sharpie, traced the branches and wrote the word BLOOM.
Next I took a ripped scarf (from the GW), and another scrap of yellow material I had,
and I began to make some flowers. (Notice the super tiny nail scissors, they were helpfull in the next step).
I then took the circles and quartered them, and took the tiny sciccors and cut them into heart shapes.
This way when I unfolded them, they would look like flowers. I made a cute little knot in the middle of each flower, while stitching them on the pillow. I wished I could have found my yellow beads to stitch into the middle of each flower, but I “organized” my cupboards while renovating the master bedroom, and now the beads are who-knows-where.
I made some different sizes….
and that was it! I love it! I think I might have to make it again with leaves for fall.
It made my lazy morning, somewhat productive,
and then in the afternoon, the sun came out and that really brightened my mood.
I hope you had a happy Friday. Did yours involve anything crafty??

Monday Funday!

Hey all!

I hope you’ve had a great week.

I’m soooo ready to be done with this pregnancy stuff, but so thankful that the baby and I and the pregnancy in general have been so blessed and healthy!

This past week, my mom and I started recovering those floral living room chairs. It has taken A LOT longer than I figured……I guess most things do, but hopefully soon, I’ll have an update with some good pics for you.

On to the party!

Hey everyone!

Woke up this morning and realized that this party didn’t auto-post yesterday!

I’ve been traveling this weekend, helping my sis get her nursery ready.

Of course, we’re both really pregnant, so getting anything done is…..slow!

It was fun to waddle through stores together, looking for nursery items.

OK! On to the party!
