Happy Memorial Day!


Today, I'm taking a break from sewing to spend the day doing home improvements with Billy. He served in the military (Army) for 3.5 years. He's pretty awesome. We're going to paint the upstairs bathroom and plant our garden today.

This week's Handmade Friday will feature a new dress for summer that will be up for sale very soon. I'm making this dress in three different colors for myself, and it's what I'll be wearing all summer when I'm not wearing my cut-off jeans.

Aaaaannd in case you're looking for something crafty to make today, here are some pretty good ideas:
-White Rabbit Ginger Ale @ Meals for Moderns - Perfect drink for hot summer days.
-DIY Bow Belt @ Elegant Musings - I'm planning on making one of these for myself in black.
-Oregon Rail Dress @ Burda Style - On my verrrrrrry long list of dresses to make.
-Pennant Rubber Stamp Roller - Pretty much explains itself.

Handmade Fridays: Awesome Chair

I bought this chair last summer in Ann Arbor at Blue House's craft show. I was a vendor there, and my booth was directly across from the booth of the artist who made it, so I got to stare at it all weekend. Whitney Crutchfield is the designer, and she makes all sorts of amazing textiles. She had mostly raw textiles for sale, but also a few things made with them, such as pillows and some reupholstered furniture. I loved the shape, and of course the fabric, so I ended up taking it home with me. It looks perfect in out music room, and really stands out against the teal walls. Whitney's website is here and she also writes for the Blue House blog; this post in particular has a bunch of her awesome prints.
