I quickly disovered that my couch was WAY bigger than any commercially-made slipcovers out there. And I've only been sewing for a couple of years, so sewing a HUGE tailored slipover was SO overwhelming. I didn't know what I … [Read more...]

You know those projects that SEEM like they will be really easy to do?? This was one of … [Read more...]

Duvet out of a shower curtain

Have you ever had a project in your mind and then you just can't find what you are looking for? That's what I ran into with my guest room redo. For the bedding I knew I wanted a grey duvet cover that had some ruffles but not too many - so it wouldn't be too "girly".

I am thrilled to be on the Riley Blake Design Team. And, to tell you the truth, I'm also a little intimidated to be on the team with such talented women.

I catch my kids painting their nails on it. It pretty … [Read more...]
