I'm so ridiculously happy with how cute our new cafe curtains look. Of course the cuteness is really all about the fabric. It's from Lori Holt's Bake Sale line. Oh my goodness!!! Every print is so stinkin cute!!!
Old and new curtains together...
Aren't the new ones so much cuter?!?
The curtains all have mitered corners. I love the way they look even if no one else notices =P
I'm off to make more cute things. I hope you are having a wonderful week!!!
I tweaked my mini box bag pattern a little bit. I made two tiny itty bitty changes and now they are easier for me to make and even cuter than before!!!
The one on the left is the updated pattern. The strap is a bit thinner and the corners a boxed just a smidge more. The one on the right is my original pattern. I still think it's super cute, but not as cute as the new one =P
These are for my lys. I have 8 more on the ironing board, but I keep getting a sharp pain in my wrist every time I pick up the iron. Has that ever happened to anyone else before? It's so weird!! I'm not sure if wrapping my wrist in an ace bandage would help. I also have no idea what I did. I sure hope it goes away soon.
So, I did a little bit of blog cleaning up and rearranging. If you were a Google+ follower, I'm not on there anymore. To be honest, I found it very frustrating to use and very difficult to navigate. I've updated my social media icons and even added one for Bloglovin =D
You may also notice that I've added a newsletter sign up. Yep!!! I've decided to do bulk updates for my Etsy shop and I'll send out the newsletter a couple of days before the update with a sneak peek of what's coming =D There's also a sign-up icon on my Facebook page. I'll have lots of sewing to do until then, because right now my shop is completely empty!! I took everything to my lys.
Ok. I need to get going and press these boxy zipper pouches, so I can take them to my lys =D
I have been doing some work inside the house too...
These are the stairs going from the first floor to the second floor. I ripped off the carpet and linoleum. My dear husband was sweet enough to use the orbital sander to take off the caked on old carpet padding and glue. It was taking me way too long to scrape it all off. I'll be painting them soon. I just have to decide on color(s).
There hasn't been too much crafting going on over here. The attic is/was like a sauna! We added a second window air conditioner yesterday, so it's nice and cool now. I've been itching to sew, especially because my sewing table is no longer doing the hula!
It was getting to the point that I was scared to sew. The old table legs barely supported the table top and every time I would try to sew, my table would sway from side to side. I was just waiting for it to collapse on me. These drawer units put an end to the hula dancing and gave me extra storage space.
