It's that time again... I have been a busy girl this week and am getting in my room this week to start getting somethings accomplished! I will post pictures of my work. Before I show my "school" made its I just have one last picture to share of my girly makeover:
I finally finished with this room!! I have to admit I do not want to be done but I must get focused on school! I painted and hung those wood letters 3 years ago for Addison's nursery (I just had to share because they are so darn cute!) I finally got my projects from a couple weeks ago hung above the bed. I also took an ordinary pillowcase to extraordinary with my new favorite invention- HEAT N BOND!!! I had never used this before and now I am in love! I printed out Addison's initials and used the scrap fabrics from my hanging art to iron on to an old pillowcase. Then I added ribbon to the ends to tie the pillowcase shut for an adorable throw pillow! I love this pillow so much! (I think my hubby was impressed as well... he asked me to make a baby gift so a girl at his work!)
Anyway... on to school...
I mainly just made some decorative things this week but I got a lot done with some adorable fabric. Here is my pallet:
Here is what I made:
- I made a penant style banner but it was soo long I couldn't get a good photo of it. When I get it hung up at school I will share. I follow directions from Babbling Abby and it was super easy. I had never used Stitch Witchery either and now I am in love with that too!
|I had some old floor pillows around the house so I thought I would re-cover for my classroom library. They are huge pillows! The kids will definitely enjoy! My mom has a Serger sewing machine so this project was a breeze...|
I am just in love with these!!
4. Last but not least, I decorated the front of my small filing cabinet. My dad gave me the filing cabinet and I just traced some mustaches on it with a white pen. The pen is one of those window writing markers- I am not sure how well the design will stay on but it turned out pretty darn cute!
Getting started in my room today! I am sure I will be posting updates this week. Also, my baby boy is playing in a t-ball tournament that has gone on for days and days.. I am over exaggerating, but I want it to be over (hope that doesn't make me a bad mama!) He has another game tonight- so wish him luck :)
