And then there were two!
This weekend I decided to make a little bunny doll for the baby, inspired by some that Meg received as a gift. Only trouble was the fabric store had such great patterns this weekend, and my husband turns out to be excellent at finding great pattern pairings. And so my one-doll project turned into a family-of-dolls project. One down, four to go!
When I saw this yellow table from West Elm (image below), my first thought was- I want that! My second thought was – and you shall have it – - and for less than $10. Granted it doesn’t have that neat base that the West Elm one does, but I’m quite pleased with the way two cans of spray paint have transformed this sad little black table that was languishing in the backyard.
I could barely wait for the paint to dry before I pulled up a chair and set up shop!
One of my favorite projects from the book is this Graphic Table Runner (below) from designer Lindy Cline of Plytextiles. A big thanks to Chronicle Books for allowing us to share the project here! Just click the link below for the full step by step instructions.
I was so excited about last week’s Cinco de Mayo place cards that I had a sudden urge to put fringe on everything. A very special little girl’s birthday is coming up soon – so I added some layers of red, pink and white fringe to a boring craft paper wrap job. Now how pretty it is!
All you need to do is cut tissue paper in strips, fold it over on itself a few times, cut fringe, unfold and glue on. I used quick-drying craft glue and it was perfect. Once the glue is dry, gently ruffle the fringe to give it a little lift. (Happy Birthday, Scarlet!)
