Inspiration: Beach House Decor

Isn't it wonderful going to a beautifully decorated vacation home?
There is something so relaxing and special about the little details.
 
Do you have a vacation home?
Here are a few decorations for the beach house that you could make yourself:
 Felt applique a fun shape onto an ordinary pillow. This anchor is great! You could even do a seashell, a flip flop, or even a seahorse!
 Think about freshening up the kitchen with a new color for the cabinets.
 Make textured ornaments using yarn or try gluing small objects like buttons or seashells onto a Styrofoam ball.
 Make fun quilts for the spare bedrooms. Don't you just love these fish scales?
 Give a new look to old furniture by painting it ombre.
 Decoupage an old map onto your chairs to make them more exciting.

If ombre seems too advanced or just is not quite your thing, how about a nice solid seafoam green?


Makes us want a vacation!

Do you bring your sewing along on your journeys?

Made by a Fabricista: Cafe au Lait Linen Dress

Hello everyone. This linen dress is the first thing that I made after my husband passed away 2 months ago.  At first, it was a real struggle- I kept putting things together the wrong way and having to rip it out and do it over again.  I probably shouldn't have chosen an asymmetrical design with fabric that looks the same on both sides for my first project!  But as I finished, I felt a real sense of accomplishment!  I have to say that creating something unique and special was just what I needed to feel a little like myself again.   I used three coordinating pieces of linen- a deep coffee colored brown, a milky cream, and an abstract print with whipped cream, cloves, and cinnamon it- thus, my cafe au lait dress!  These particular fabrics are no longer available, but there are lots of other choices in the Linen section.  Linen is so wonderful to work with.  You do need to accept that wrinkles will be part of the look though, which I am fine with.  For the pattern, I used Vogue 1694 wh…

Made by a Fabricista: Winter is coming!

When I was browsing on Fabric Mart's amazing selections, I couldn't help but drool over the gorgeous coating by Michael Kors.  I love the designer fabric choices on the website.  Also, the price point of this amazing fabric made this a no-brainer for me.  I simply had to make another winter coat.   I live in the northern plains of the US and we can have winter coat weather from October until April or May.  That means, I need to have many choices for a winter coat.  Just having one or two is boring in my book!  I have numerous coats, most of which are made from FM's selection of coating.
It appears this Michael Kors Coating color I used is all sold out, however there are some pretty choices here: Coating


You can see from the inside of the hood, I used a pretty floral for the lining.  I just love pretty lining fabrics.  This one has so many pretty colors in it and it's a floral, so it was love for me!

Here's a view of the inside.  Isn't that just pretty?  Please do…
