Did you know it is National Sewing Month?
No? Neither did I however Jo-ann's is touting it in this month's flier.
So that means I have to get sewing. Yes the ad pulled me in and I went and bought fabric.
The top fabric I am using to make a pillow case cover for a neck roll pillow my MIL gave me.
The middle fabric is for more owls. These will be auctioned at our church fall auction and festival.
The bottom fabric is for a lap quilt that I am also making for our auction. I will post pictures later once I finish the quilt along with the information for our fall festival.
Along with all the super cool fabric I will be making owls, pillows and quilts with, I got some outdoor fabric to recover the two seats of the chairs that sit on our back porch. Several years ago I had gotten some navy fat quarters and recovered these. They quickly faded and needed replacing but I am just getting to it. I just pulled the old fabric off and put the new fabric on and stapled it down. It was easy peasy. I had extra fabric so I also made a little quilt sandwich to go on the table for Mr Frog to sit on.
This was a MUCH needed update as you can see from the first picture with the "blue" fabric on the chair seats.
I love how just a little fabric and staples can give something a whole new updated look. I just purchased a dry sink that I am going to paint and distress to match the tan and teal in the fabric of the chairs as an addition to our back porch.
Happy crafting peeps!
