Hanging Flower Garden
Flower Wall Hanging
I am loving it! I got inspired a while ago with grey and yellow. Subtle yet cheery :) And so fun to decorate with...I am thinking about adding some light blue in there. More pics to come as it is a work in progress!
Anyway, about Ashley's tutorials. They are incredible easy to follow, and you don't need much sewing skills for any of it (believe me, I am still such an beginner at the whole sewing thing).
The flower garden was by far my favorite. Every day I look at it and think- "I made that? cool!"
The flower wall hanging works by a similar concept. The tutorial says to use an art canvas or to make your own hanging, but I am broke remember? So I improvised and used our Cup of Noddles box. I know- so
Girly much? Maybe. Jonathan is getting skeptical, but hopefully we can find a way to add in some of his masculinity ;)
I desperately needed some decorative pillows for our new bedding because they are like $40 a piece. I found almost 3 yards of this grey quilted fabric at Joanns, which is liqiudating and changing locations, for $2! Amazing. Then I stuck some rosettes on it and wallah!
So the next project was a fun ruffly pillow! Jonathan helped me make this one. I taught him to make a basting stitch on the sewing machine and off we went like a madman! I was so proud :)
I discovered a little trick while making this pillow...it REALLY helps if you pull the fabric in opposite direction of the seam as you are sewing, so that instead of looking like this
it will look like this! :)
I really need to stop making pillows...it is so addictive.
I hope some of you can enjoy these tutorials! They sure are easy and affordable! Happy decorating!
