it's a rare gift when i give myself enough time to sew just for me. as my little hobby of stitching turned into a full-time business, i gave up quite a lot of time creating just for the purpose of keeping. i cherish the time spent with my little sewing machine sewing up pillows, quilts & curtains for our home.
last weekend, though, i spent my entire saturday evening sewing little things for our home.
it was pure bliss.
i picked up that arkansas tea towel at a boutique show last fall with the intention of turning it into a pillow top. it stayed on my fabric shelf collecting dust until last weekend when i finally tackled this forgotten project.
the sweater pillow was also a quick stitch project. you can find erin's tutorial right here.
i paired the tea towel with a bit of gray polka dot fabric & stuffed it with a thrifted feather down pillow.
before finishing the project, i spent just a few minutes embroidering a little wonky-shaped heart around our town, fayetteville. i absolutely love how this pillow turned out!
i also made a little yellow mini bunting banner for my tobacco basket, a beloved christmas gift from my parents. i left the rough edges, sewed just the top & strung the pieces with gardening twine.
so simple & the happiest touch for this little corner.
i love a good weekend spent checking off those home project to-do's. i hope you spend just an hour or two this weekend making something special just for you.
what are you sewing up & creating for your home?
