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: Summer Sweater Knit

It appears to be sold out right now, but here are some other great choices. Sweater knits  I like checking on FMs site on a frequent basis as their selection is updated often. 

I always seem to have my eyes closed in at least one photo!
For this post, however, I knew I wanted a summer, yet trans-seasonal garment since this fabric is just so lovely, soft, and I am such a sucker for floral prints that I wanted to wear this as much as possible.  Do you ever come across fabric and feel the same way?  


I didn't have to do anything special or out of the ordinary with this fabric.  I treated it just as any…

Made by a Fabricista: Maxi Looks for Summer

Happy Saturday All!!   This summer break seems to be flying by so quickly and I only have one month before I return to virtual teaching.  After parent surveys, union, and school board meetings our school district is returning to virtual teaching and learning next month.  The cases in Miami Dade County have surged over the last few weeks and with over 70K cases in the county where I teach, and a growing 300K + cases in Florida, I don’t even know when things will return back to normal due to COVID-19.
I have been heartbroken but the only thing I can appeal to others is to stay safe and wear your mask. I am blessed so far to have no immediate family member affected by this pandemic. It has been a tough year for most of us but I am pretty sure that this too shall pass.
Now let’s get into my summer sewing plans!!  Last month I selected 2 prints: a zebra chevron and an animal print and knew I wanted to make maxi looks for summer. Unfortunately, both challis prints are sold out but there are…
