QuiltCon - How the Modern Quilt Movement Converted Me


Riding the Sewing Machine in the Stitch Lab Booth
Quilts typically conjure images of old ladies, that is until you attend QuiltCon. I know this phrase is completely over-used, but these are not your grandma’s quilts. This is not your grandma’s quilt show for that matter. I doubt my grandmother ever bought a fat quarter at the same place where you could get a tattoo or take a picture straddling a giant bucking sewing machine. The Modern Quilt Guild is changing people’s perceptions of quilts, especially mine.

DIY Book Covers From Old T-Shirts

Hey everyone! Hope you're doing well and staying warm. It's snowing like crazy here in Tennessee. Today on the blog I'm using the new Electric Neon Fabric Markers! These are so much fun to doodle and sketch with. Let's jump into today's tutorial.

Twine "Wicker" Lampshade Tutorial

My home decor style tends to change quite frequently or at least every few years. I'm going away from the stark, clean and uncluttered rooms to something a bit more comfortable and homey. I have always loved wicker but with cats it's just not possible. Or it is but it looks like heck within a week. So I decided to incorporate the look by making a faux wicker lampshade from my newly remodeled half bath!

Neon Doodle Sneakers

IMG_1536 edit

What can I say, I've been on a kicks kick lately! Maybe it's all the boot-wearing I've been doing with all this snow and slush we've been getting on the East Coast, but I'm craving some bright, fresh springtime gear (some bright, fresh springtime temperatures wouldn't be so bad, either). I've also been drawing a lot in my sketchbook during these long cold months, and it's nice sometimes to take the doodling out of the sketchbook from time to time.

DIY Leopard Painted Bag


I love the idea of painting a pattern or design over a bag, it’s a great way to personalize something that really is very personal. We carry our bags with us everyday and most of the time our bags have someone else’s initials or design all over them. While this project is definitely inspired by existing bags, it’s also a fun and simple way to personalize and make your bag your own. The soft fabric paints by Tulip are perfect for creating your own designs. So get your bag and let’s start painting!

Block Sequin Sweatshirt: DIY

 
I am always looking to create new Sweatshirts 
or Shirts that I will wear for months to come,
preferably something that I can dress up or down. 
My creations come to life so easily 

  VIA
This was my inspiration a Gucci that cost  $369.00.
But I wanted a Vertical stripe because it makes you look taller.:)

Let me show you how easy it is to make my sweatshirt 
which is a little less expensive.
