{ I'm Back }

Okay, so I thought about blogging while I was away but, I was just too busy sewing & having fun with my family. I never could find the time to do it. But, I'm home & I can't wait to show you the things I worked on. But, before I show you my projects, I want to show you a project that my sisters, Canary & Ape, worked on.

We set up two long tables & turned my mom's family room into a sewing "sweat shop" {that's what my dad called it} for the week. My sister Ape came over one day & helped slipcover a chair for Canary. Here is the thrift store find before...

And here it is after my sisters worked their magic...

Wow, huh? They made the slipcover out of a white, quilted fabric & then painted the legs black...

Later, Canary decided to play around with my mom's sewing machine & stitched this bird {traced from the Anna Maria Horner fabric I used for Ms. Sassypants room} onto the bright pink polka dot fabric. Then she sewed it onto the black & white polka dot fabric & made it into a pillow. SEW cute!

It's always the most fun when you create as you go, don't you think? I can't wait to share my projects with you next week! Have a great weekend!
