So as I think about my new house and all of the designs and decorating I would like to do, I am struck by the fact that there are so many fabulous fabrics that I want to put around the house. However I don't want to sew everything. I have bunches of ideas, new or acquired, that I want to incorporate into my home that use fabric in a less "traditional" way.
Which got me thinking...while in the bathtub....all of my great ideas come while in the bathtub. I think that is where my brain is the clearest! lol
Anywho, it got me thinking about what I wanted to share with you and my future projects. Which led to me to thinking about all of the things that you must all be doing with fabric that don't involve sewing or a minimal amount of sewing. And I want to hear about it and see it.
So I want to start a new series on my blog that focuses on ways to use fabric that involve no sewing or very little sewing. But it makes use of all those beautiful fabrics we own or drool over. And I want YOU to be involved. I'd love to feature some of you with your own tutorials about these things.
Here's the deal...
• we need a cool name...and moving and being sick etc, have made me lose my creative ability in that capacity for the moment. So let's brain storm some names. Think "fabric minus sewing" or something like that.
• I want to hear from you about YOUR tutorials. Your idea does not need to be original but your tutorial does. Perhaps there is something you have pinned on pinterest that you've been dying to try or something you've seen and said "I can totally make that myself". Well put together a project idea and talk to me about it (you can email me) and we'll see if it is the right fit for this series.
• Does a tutorial sound scary? That's totally normal. So I'm going to....wait for it....write a TUTORIAL on HOW to write a tutorial. Ironic? Yes. Helpful? Absolutely!
Okay! So let's brainstorm! We need an awesome name and then we can have a fun blog badge. I'll even make sure we have one of those "I've been featured on....(whatever name we decide)" because I know we all love to have those. Teehee! And then let me know your ideas!
I'm moving in two(!) days, so internet access may be sketchy from here to there. But I'll try to get back to you promptly. Tutorial on tutorials coming soon!
Oh and here's a shot of the first piece of wall paper that went up in my sewing room...just half of one wall was covered to cover some current (or shall we say "not current") wall paper. ;) It's slowly becoming MY space!
