Hi friends! Recently a group of bloggers gathered together for friendship and creative fun.
Karianne of Thistlewood Farms joined us and she generously gifted each of us with charm packs of her new Hoffman Fabrics Sweet Tea line. On that day a challenge was born for each of us to create things from her fabric. Heart attack time for me because I don't sew!
With a little thought and involvement with my handsome son, we came up with three projects to share with you today.
This sweet little flower now serves as an embellishment on my tried and true denim jacket. How did I make this? Four flower petals cut out of fabric with a few hand stitches in the middle.
I sewed the gem on by hand with just a few stitches too.
This took about 15 minutes and I love it!
The bookmark is just a pocket sewn with the sewing machine that has cardboard inside. I made the tassel by cutting an embroidery thread packet in half and tying around the loop. This couldn't be any easier and it was fun. :)
3. Decoupage a Monogram
Of course we all love monograms and adding fun fabric to your letter of choice makes a personal statement. My son made this with Mod Podge, scissors, and a pen to trace the letter. Another 15 minute project.
There are many beautiful colors in the Sweet Tea Fabric line but I was obviously a little bit in love with the navy fabrics. This challenge taught me something - don't let your lack of skills stop you from trying something new!
