A Vintage Tea Towel Apron

I have a large collection of vintage tea towels and table runners, some with stains that I know I'll never be able to remove.
My re-use, recycle, re-purpose remedy.
Simple tie around the waist half apron.
I made a pattern, just straight lined rectangle out of linen, cut out long ties, and attached the piece of vintage cloth to the front of the apron.
It's one of my favorite aprons.
Coming Soon...
An apron giveaway you won't want to miss.
Keep posted.

Happy Champignon

What is it about these Happy Rooms?

I'm having too much fun making them!

If you want an easy Spring project that will surely add some charmingly happy moments then I would suggest making these.

Easy to make:


Start by making a round template out of paper or cardstock, this is your pattern.

Place round pattern onto fabric choice and cut around circle.

Cut one more of contrasting fabric for bottom of room.

Sew two circles together leaving a small opening around circle for turning inside out.

Stuff with cotton batting. I prefer bamboo stuffing.

Cut one long strip of muslin approximately 12 inches by 4 inches.

Sew strip together except for bottom.

Turn stem inside out and stuff with cotton batting. I use bamboo.

Place stem on bottom side of room and hand-sew in place.

Sew bottom of stem by hand too.

Now you have a Happy Mushroom!

Place in a sunny window.


Enjoy caring and sharing Spring days.
