I got my ultimate best gift ever for Christmas! A new sewing machine! Specifically a professional machine that will sew through all of those layers of fabric.
Even euro shams like these were nearly impossible with the little light weight machine that I had.
No more fabric slipping and sliding all over the place making it almost impossible to finish a pretty project for a customer.
The project above was for a 13 year olds room. For you local girls, the floral fabric came from Fabrics Unlimited. The other fabrics came from Voos.
Heather and I are trying to create a cute boys line of painted furniture and sewn accessories. Any suggestions?? We could use some help here for sure! Our little guys deserve an attractive bedroom too!
I just finished this pillow. It isn’t stuffed yet. I took the pockets off of an old pair of khaki pants. I’m also doing some pillows with dog silhouettes to coordinate and then some light blue pillows with chevron stripes. Boys are so difficult to decorate for!
Kind of a different twist with the more traditional fabrics. I added turquoise velvet to the one underneath.
I LOVE this pillow. That ruffled knit was supposed to be for scarves, but we all know how that goes……I’m planning on sewing and sewing and then stuffing or adding forms closer to the show so they don’t take up so much room right now. Oh…..what show? The girls have talked me into doing The Affair of The Heart in February! Apparently the three of us have officially lost our minds!
Miss Molly has been tons of help (ha-ha) during this cold weather we’re having. She’s designated herself official cat wrangler. She is so funny. She actually worries about Jack the cat if she thinks he’s been outside in the cold too long and whines and begs until I let her out and then tries to herd him back in the house. She’s a mess!
Molly after a hard day of work. See how the stuffing is coming out of that bottom pillow? She paws and rearranges things to suit herself.
I’ll let you know where we will be located at the show in February as soon as I receive that information.
Please leave a comment and let us know about any suggestions you might have for boys. What are your little guys asking for?
Happy New Year!
