My ADORNit fabric arrived last week.
OMGosh, how cute is this collection?
My assignment as an ADORNit Ambassador is to use the fabric they send me in any way I choose, so I went with something I was comfortable with: my embellished burp cloth. Colored burp cloths found here.
"HAPPY" and "mem0ries" words found here
After I finished sewing and while I still had the ironing board out I thought I'd quickly iron the cloth napkins that were stacked in the ironing pile. Well, a funny thing happened while I was standing there, mindlessly ironing. I got to thinking, why not embellish napkins too? So I started pulling out dishes and fabric and placemats and auditioning combinations until I got a combo that I loved.
Then, because I had a mini coloring book that matched my fabrics, I water colored a flamingo, cut it out and glued it to a toothpick.
Voila - instant cupcake topper!
Gah...how cute is that? Kind'a makes you want to have a party doesn't it?
I don't know if anyone is interested in a tutorial on these simple sewing projects. Just let me know if you do and I'd be happy to do a couple for you, but really, they are so simple that I'm sure you can do them without help. The most important thing is to start with cute fabric. The rest is easy.
These projects are such great ways to incorporate fun fabrics into everyday life and everyone knows that life is so much sweeter when embellished. Don't you agree?
