I’m been so excited to show ya’ll the little trinkets I whipped up for my little sister’s apartment! She’s a reader of the ol’ blog… so I wanted to wait to show you until after I’d surprised her on Christmas. She’d asked for a little color to brighten up her space, so I started with THIS tutorial for a throw pillow @ Cluck Cluck Sew. Nae’s a huge fan of owls & modern patterns so I bought a great charm pack… It’s a Hoot by Moda @ Fat Quarter Shop.
For the other throw pillow I used the rest of the charm pack and simply sewed the squares together for a “quilted look” without the quilting. I used Pleated Poppy’s Pillow Tutorial… it’s so simple!
Next I knocked off some adorable canvases from my dear friend Casey! I used scraps of fabric from the pillows, Modge Podge & a little brown paint… easy peasy!
Did anyone else make some handmade gifts this year? I had grand hopes of making a whole lot more… but with the morning sickness… maybe next year… when I have a 6 month old? Ha.
