Last weekend, not this past weekend but the one before, I took a quick trip to Hobby Lobby while Kiera was taking a nap. To look for what you ask? Fabric. I bought this ugly print in a 16x20 frame with glass at Goodwill for $3. Of course I don't have a picture of it. Just trust me about the ugliness. Anyway I never really knew what I wanted to do with the frame until I got the bright idea to frame some fabric. So I found a color/pattern I liked and then painted the frame yellow (it was burgundy-ish) similar to the curtains in our kitchen. I thought about putting a big ole "J" in it but I have decided that I really like it the way it is for now.
Only imagine it hanging in the place of those 3 pictures horizontally instead of vertically.
Then I found a piece of fabric in their scrap bin that I guessed was just the right size to make a cover for this little pillow I had hanging around. I actually got out my monstrous old sewing machine to make the pillow case! I know, I can hardly believe it myself.
This 12x12 pillow case took me a little over an hour to make. It was sewn in the most ghetto way but I was wingin' it. I think it turned out pretty darn awesome. Just don't go examining the corners next to the buttons. Like I said...ghetto.
Fine Lilly I will take your picture since you obviously aren't going to move so I can take pictures of my new pillow.
Then I also picked up this awesome honey comb scrapbook paper and I just wrapped it around a small pickle jar I had sitting around, threw a tea light candle in it and called it done. Now I am going to make about 10 more in different sizes cause they are so darn cute.
I still have another piece of fabric I found in the scrap bin I just haven't decided what I want to do with it yet. It will probably involve the sewing machine because I reeeeally need some practice.
