Today's project is a craft challenge with these lovely bloggers:
Home Sweet Home State
Last Spring, I was completely smitten by the gorgeous toss pillows at Target. Click HERE to see my post about them! I've enjoyed all of those gold ones but wanted to add some more colors to the palette.
You've seen me do this kind of thing before, upcycling what I have into something I want! Today, what I have is a scruffy T-shirt, a ratty tank top and a red gingham queen size sheet.
Oh, how I've loved wearing these shirts! It's hard to say just how many times they've been worn and washed. Can you see how incredibly soft they are? Fabric this tattered can be difficult to sew.
I always struggle with where to cut, so I experiment with chalk until I finally reach a decision. Chalk lines can easily be wiped away with a damp cloth. I can change my mind as many times as I like!
Using THIS PATTERN, my tried and true, FAVORITE PATTERN from Noodlehead, pieces are cut from the gingham sheet for the pillow covers. Then I applique' my home state onto the panel for the front. I love the unique shape of Arkansas, my home sweet home state!
And here's the tank top.
Remember where we began?
Let's take a look at everyone else's projects!
Happy Spring, y'all!
