Yesterday I promised to show you what I made in my sewing therapy session on Wednesday when I needed a break from reviewing all the lessons in the BYBC pre-conference webinars. I’m learning so much but I will admit that each week’s session is intensive!
When our kids were living at home, I went all out to make Valentine’s Day fun for them… special treats, flowers, treasure hunts, notes stuck to bedroom doors to find when they woke up… all sorts of memory building things.
I’ve never really done much by way of decorating for Valentine’s though. So this year, I thought it would be fun to have little pops of red or hearts here and there throughout the house.
To that end, on my last trip to Joann’s in the States, I picked up some pretty red fabric with gold hearts and made a set of Valentine’s tissue box covers following my Reversible Tissue Box Cover Tutorial.
Didn’t they turn out pretty!
The tall square one is in our downstairs guest bathroom:
The short rectangular one is in the kitchen:
And the largest one is on the end table beside my chair in the living room.
I even got out and ironed the gingham table cover that Dave’s step mother gave us years and years ago.
Of course, the end table looked like that just long enough for me to take a photo to share.
Five minutes later, it looked like this:
Today, I’ve been in my sewing room again making something so incredibly cute, I just know you’re going to love it! Pop on over to instagram @supermomnocape to see the new pattern I’ll be working on this weekend.
Oh… and I haven’t forgotten about the tutorial for the tissue box cover using one-way/directional fabric. That’s being worked on too and I hope to have it ready to share soon. Like all my tutorials and patterns, I try to make sure that I have all the kinks worked out before I share them.
I want to wish everyone a wonderful, heart-centered weekend with much Aloha!
If you happening to be visiting for the first time… Welcome!
I have so many fun things planned over the coming weeks and months. I have several more tutorials besides those mentioned above in the works, quite a few quick tips, some recipes and there may even be a visit (or two) from the Hexie Turtles!
You haven’t heard of the Hexie Turtles, you say?
Well then, I must introduce you to some of their adventures!
