Summertime and flowers. Hmmm…I don’t know about you but when I garden, I always feel like I need three hands. A nice little gardening apron that can hold a few tools, seed packets and even a cell phone could be useful. Check out this tutorial on how to make a garden apron. You’ll be out in your garden with your own specially designed apron in no time!

The scent of lavender is SO relaxing don’t you think? A little dried lavender and this pillow pattern will have you relaxing in no time. Plus lavender pillows make great gifts too. If you don’t have lavender, that’s okay, other filling options are included with the pattern. Why not give this little project a try?

When you sew, you inevitably have threads. Honestly, I feel that they seem to multiply quickly like thread bunnies. Instead of putting them on your sewing surface or trying to coral them in a store bought container, why not make your sewing space special with a custom designed thread catcher? You can use up some of your fabric scraps and fat quarters in this project. And, it’s a great way to make your space your own while you slash your stash at the same time…so you don’t have to worry about using the same fabrics that were used in the pattern.

If you are anything like me, you want something decorative in your kitchen/kitchen door windows but you also want to see outside. This easy curtain pattern will allow you to use fabric scraps to quickly transform your space while letting in the light. And, these cafe kitchen curtains are so easy to make, you can change your decor often so have fun with your favorite prints and patterns.
