a lil' bit of fabric love

The rain we've been having has been beneficial for one reason:

It's sped up the process of this tree blooming!

Now if it can stop raining (or being gloomy) for one day so that this tree can dry, then I can steal a couple branches and replace my fake flowers! :)

I recently found pinterest.

From what I've heard, my spare time will now disappear and be overtaken by this site. I've only begun on it yesterday, but from what I've seen it's a super fantastic site of awesomeness that lets me search for all sorts of ideas, and organize them properly all in one quaint spot.


If I'd been using it before, I'd remember where the 'tutorials' for these mini projects were.


Since today is the day I start trying to make awesome pillow cases, I've been going through all my fabrics and wanting to use some for other things..

  • Prettified bulletin board..  

I love this bulleting board. Yup, I splurged on it. No DIY here (well other than the fabric and Jute of course). If I have to look at it every day, 12$ is worth it.  

One of these days Andrew's going to have a Jute overload and demand that I get rid of it all.
It will be an epic battle.

Not everything I make is oober girlie. I swear.

  • Fabric bookmark...

The other day I was making a fabric bookmark & Andrew got excited. So I decided it could be for him.

But then I realized that I had pretty fabric that matched my original fabric perfectly..

When he saw the complete project, he no longer wanted it. I wonder why...

  • Fabric bracelet...

The second I saw this tutorial, I just knew I had to make it as a 'scar hider'.

It didn't work as that.

But it's a cute, simple & chic bracelet!! Now to make one in every color fabric I have...

The guys just left to go fishing, it's time to tackle the pillowcases.. Or try to. Yay!




  1. Cute! I especially love the bookmark! Good luck with your pillows today. I think I might try to tackle pillows some as well.

  2. I also just found Pinterest and I love it, what a great idea! I can't even tell you how many times I found something I loved never to find it again! No more thanks to Pinterest!
