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 a Fabricista: Classic Holiday Pieces

Happy Saturday Everyone! It seems like forever since I wrote a blog post. The past 2 months have been quite a challenge as I lost my sewjo, creativity, and drive to create. I had so many plans to finish off 2020 strong but my energy level has been at the lowest. In all honesty, I needed this time to reflect and regroup to focus on what matters. Going to work daily in a physical building leaving my children at home to do virtual learning all alone left me feeling guilty.  I made a decision in late October to put a pause on sewing for a few weeks giving my attention to them every chance I get. I have had moments where I broke down hearing other parents cry out for help, but in all honesty, 2020 has drained me the last few months emotionally in so many ways. I knew I had to get out of this slump, not take things too personally, and create a few pieces to lift my spirit before the end of the year. I have been wanting to make the Dionne duster by SewAltered style pattern with a designer Pon

Made by a Fabricista: Velvet Holiday Jumpsuit

Hey friends!  So glad to share one last make with you.  Hope you've enjoyed wonderful holidays, even if they have been a bit different than normal. I'd been wanting to try making Deer & Doe's Sirocco Jumpsuit for a while, but was afraid it wouldn't be flattering on my mom-tum.  I finally got over that with a romper this Summer (oops, never got around to blogging that!) and decided to follow up with a velvet jumpsuit for Christmas! When my hubby saw it he called me an elf.  Bahaha.   But I love it; I even wore it for our Christmas card photos. I used a green stretch velvet I picked up at Fabric Mart a couple of months ago.  The particular deep green velvet I used is sold out now, but I just love these alternatives: Rosewood , Ocean or Obsidian (or you can find even more options here! )  I think the marriage of stretch velvet and this pattern is really excellent! I didn't have to make many pattern alterations:  I often need a full bust adjustment (FBA), but di
