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?

Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
