Dot Your Eyes

Ruffle-topped curtains I made using a tutorial from my online Home Ec class. I got the fabric from one of my local thrift stores, several yards for $1.00. It's a sheer linen.

Repurposed Filled Life

I found this blouse at my local Goodwill. I absolutely love the pattern. The colors are so vibrant. It reminds me of something my grandmother would have worn in the 70s. Unfortunately, it made me look like someone's grandmother when I put it on. The fabric was so great, I could not pass it up, though. I knew I could do something with it. Enter pillow form I already own.

A little seam ripping, a little cutting, a little sew, and viola. New Pillow. I even managed to make the buttons on the front of the blouse, the opening in the back of the pillow case. The best part, it totally matches the color scheme of my apartment.

Home Ec

I've started an online sewing class recently, called Home Ec. Info can be found here.

The first project is a set of napkins. I made mine out of a vintage sheet I thrifted from Goodwill. More projects will be posted as I complete them.
