Hello everyone!  I am quickly using up my stash of posts in my blog queue as we continue to renovate, pack, and get ready to move and turn our house into a rental in the span of the next week to three weeks.  It will actually be a very unconventional move as we are actually trading places with our tenant …

In connection with the Tufted Ottoman Tutorial I wanted to share how I made double welting for this and numerous other pieces of furniture.  To finish off the raw edge with the staples, furniture must be adorned with trim.  You can purchase numerous types of trim, gimp trim being one of the more popular, and it is far less time …

I am so excited to share this post with you today!  Finally, after months of replying to people that I will put together a tutorial on how I crafted a coffee table into a tufted ottoman, it has arrived!

Hello everyone.  Today I wanted to share a simple, 10 minute sewing project that could make some great little Christmas teacher gifts, or coffee or tea drinker gifts, or you could just update the coasters in your home.  These are very quick and easy to make, and I think even someone who qualifies themselves as a beginner sewer can succeed …

Hello, everyone.  And Happy November!  I cannot believe we only have two months left this year!  Before I get started on today’s tutorial, in keeping with the theme of the month, I want to share something I’m thankful for.  I hope that being thankful has found it’s way into your life more than in the month of November.  We have noticed a decided difference …

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m picky …

I’ve gotten some questions from friends and readers about reupholstery.  Usually, if one person is asking, there are more in the crowd who have the same question, but for many reasons won’t voice it (I’m usually the latter person).  So I wanted to take a moment to answer some questions if you’re thinking about digging into a very fun way …

We’re coming up close to the 4th of July.  I have a fun and easy project I wanted to share in case anyone out there wanted to do a vintage or historical theme in their celebrations on Independence Day. A couple of years ago my little history lover asked for a Civil War Birthday.  I went with a vintage patriotic theme, and found …
