Gardener Bucket Tutorial

5 May

Hey everyone! It’s been a long time since I wrote a post here! I wrote up a tutorial on my other blog yesterday, and I thought I would share a link to it here as well.

As we all know, Mothers Day is coming up. Next weekend, in fact!!! If you are anything like me, you usually forget about it and have a mini panic attack at the last minute. This year I decided I wasn’t going to do that. If you have basic sewing skills and a 5 gallon bucket, you can make this in just a few hours time.

Here is the link if you want to check out the tutorial and give it a try! http://littlehouseonmeylah.blogspot.com/2012/05/gardeners-bucket-apron-tutorial.html

Have a great weekend!

Kaleidoscope Baby Quilt

19 Aug

This is our latest listing. It features fun and bold fabrics in all of your favorite fall colors. I know it’s not a kaleidoscope quilt pattern. I named it that because all of the colors reminded me of looking into a kaleidoscope (also, I didn’t know there was a pattern with that name until I finished this one… I’m still learning!) I think this turned out very nicely.

I had a few remnants left over and I decided to use them rather than toss them away. I was unsure of what to make since the pieces were pretty small, so I just began to sew them together. I ended up with a pretty adorable pillow. Just to be safe, I need to add that a pillow should never be placed in a crib with a baby. It is purely for decoration only. The pillow could be used as a cute accent on a rocking chair, or perhaps a window seat, in the nursery.

I love the bright colors. It’s so cheerful! I think any baby would love to cozy up in this lovely blanket.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to make back-to-school gifts for my kids teachers. I’m so excited that school is starting again! Two weeks and counting!
