In case you didn’t know, last month (March…is that already last month?) was National Crafting Month. We wanted to show how easy it is to incorporate fabrics into everyday crafting and have some fun. Our employee-owners, Isabelle and Robin, went to town creating a bunch of super creative and fun projects with our fabrics. One of our sayings around here is “No Rules Just Fabric”. We created this as a hashtag so feel free to create and instagram with us. We also have it as a pinterest board, click here to take a peek. I mean… the more creativity the better right?
Why not think outside the sewing box 😉
What to make? That is the question…. Here are a few of the crafts we made.
Unless you live under a rock (admittedly, sometimes I think it would be nice) you’ve noticed that letters are a super popular decorating theme now. Head into your favorite craft or hobby store and check it out! We bought these chip-board letters and covered them in fabric – VOILA! Instant pop of color!
Hmmm… how about a mail or message organizer? Super fast! Take a large embroidery hoop, fold the fabric so there is no raw edge, and layer! SHAZAAAMM…you have instant organization…no sewing, no gluing and practically done in minutes! Oh, and just so you know, the back of this hoop is a hot mess! Who cares? It’s hanging on the wall – nobody needs to know that – it’s our little secret! You could paint the hoop or keep it natural as we did here.
Want a quick way to make your closet or dresser look legit? How about cutting fabric with pinking shears and lining a basket… tie it with a coordinating ribbon and POW!
Instant Decor? Sure, no problem. Buy inexpensive stretched canvas from the craft store and cover with your favorite fabric. All you need to do is keep it flat and staple it to the back and then YOWZA! You have a great little piece of art. If you like to change things up frequently like I do, just remove and replace the fabric. You’ll still be able to use the fabric scrap for another project! That’s fabulous!
And now… the Pièce de Résistance… (although we love all of our crafts equally) are the Pixie Dot flowers created by Robin. Fold and gather the fabric, add floral tape and put it in a pretty vase – add some pussy willows and TA DAH! Of course, I simplified the process a bit (just as Robin makes all her crafting look easier) but…you get the point!
Forever flowers to brighten every day! 🙂
Check back next week because we’ll have more crafts to share with you. Like I said, every month is craft month if that’s what you enjoy doing! Happy Crafting!!!
