We have successfully relocated and are getting to know our new surroundings. One of the first places I had to locate was a good fabric store, and locate one I did!
This store is a-MAZ-ing. Gorgeous cottons, loads of notions, pillow inserts, stuffing, batting, anything and everything you need. Most of the fabric was $4 a yard. Yes, you read that right. FOUR. DOLLARS. A. YARD.
(Or I guess I should say FOUR. THOUSAND. WON. A. YARD.)
So of course I went overboard and bought like a gazillion yards of fabric. (Not really, but I did buy a LOT.)
My first project was to make some pillows for our sterile beige vinyl couch.
As you can see, this poor couch needed some coziness. Badly. So I took some of the beautiful floral cotton that I bought and made some big pillows with pin tucks that I just love. I also made a couple smaller pillows using a vintage sheet that I brought with me to make stuffies. Used the sheet for the MC and the floral fabric for details. I love how they turned out.
My next project, which happened this afternoon, was to re-cover the raggedy pad for the changing table that we were given. It’s a really cute little table, but the changing pad cover had torn and it was just kinda yucky.
So I bought some really adorable oilcloth and set to work!
Here are some pics of the process, in case you are interested (I know you are).
I just love how it turned out! And I feel much better about changing my babies booties on this nice, clean and adorable changing pad!
Well, that is all for now folks.
Wait, one more thing…
