Tutorials

The fabric and sewing world is so big and one person…er…me…is so small and can’t keep up with it.  I love that Pinterest picks out things that it will think I will like, because even if they are older, I would never have gotten to see them otherwise. (I won’t go into how I really feel about social media sites and advertising tracking my every move, but I’m sure somewhere I feel an invasion of privacy, lol)

Anyway today I Melissa from Polka Dot Chair was delivered to my inbox and upon visiting her site, I found out just how creative, crafty, and helpful she really is.  She has a couple of fabric lines with Riley Blake Designs (which I will post photos of below, and look at this big compilation of tutorials!  I can’t wait!

Scrappy and shabby chic is always fun and a great way to use scraps.

I would consider making the bunny removable so that I could keep this wreath up long after Easter is over.

It is almost spring here and I am eagerly waiting!  All those pretty soft greens with the bright punches of tree buds and flowers popping out…I love it!  The thing I love the most is that such beauty always comes after a freezing death.  It’s such a metaphor for life.  All beautiful flowers were once waiting below the dark, dirty, frozen earth waiting for God to warm them and call them for gently into their full splendor!

And the birds are returning too!  It’s fun to watch each kind of bird flock north, again, all in it’s own time.  So enjoy the beautiful color palette in this week’s Bird Watching bundle from Fabricworm!
