What have I been up to all summer? That’s the thought I have been having all morning as I realize summer is almost over. I had such high ambitions to get through my stash this summer and while I made progress there is still quite a bit of fabric in there.
As I need to clear my shelves to welcome in my own designs – I’m thinking of looking at what I have and make things that I can sell in an etsy store instead of things for us and family members. That way – I get a little start up money for my own fabrics AND clear out my stash in probably a more efficient way.
While I’m strategizing about that option – let me share some of the great things I’ve made this summer. Continue reading
I bought this great vintage looking key/letter wall storage at Hobby Lobby early into my sewing room makeover thinking it would be perfect for Sewing Machine Parts/Notions etc. I was using it as is for awhile but didn’t like how it looked and thought it could use a little labeling. Thinking I need to start using some of my fabric I decided to wing it and make some fabric boxes to go in each square. Continue reading
So my neighbor Jennifer is a master wreath maker. She has a wreath for her kitchen and door for every month of the year. Last time I was at her house I was so inspired. Continue reading
While the fourth of July may not be your pups favorite holiday because of the fireworks, BBQ’s with friends, hot dogs and outdoor fun definitely is something that they enjoy. This year I was hosting a party right around the fourth and thought I’d make some fun festive clothes for Maggie and Johnny. Continue reading
My amazing Grandma who I still regularly go to for sewing advice and who often comes to me for computer advice was turning 90 years young. Continue reading
My husband and son are Aggies. So I wanted to make a bed that could be in his office for when Maggie visits him. I wanted to make it out of team fabric and something soft for her to snuggle up in. I used a pattern from simplicity #3906 and made this bed for her. I think I am going to make the same for her window seat but a little less stuffed. Continue reading
Chiweenies are not big dogs and its not always safe for them to jump up and down of high positions. However, being that they are a small dog, they like to be up high so they are on a more even level with others. I noticed that my dog Maggie was always trying to get up on things and I didn’t want her to hurt herself so I needed to come up with a way for her to safely climb up onto couches, and her new window seat that I was making her.
Stairs that I found at Petco, Petsmart etc just weren’t my style so I knew I needed to make something special for her. Continue reading
My pup Maggie loves to look out the window. She happily sits there all day while I work watching the neighborhood all day. The barking hello for everyone that walks by isn’t great but I know she is happiest there (we can work on the barking). I had an old ottoman that had seen better days that was just the right height for the window. It just needed a new look. Continue reading
