If you're anything like me, you have a running list of projects you want to try. Things you save repeatedly on Pinterest, ideas you scribble down in the back of your planner, or maybe you just keep a mental list in your brain. Clothesline baskets have been on my want-to-try list for forever, and this week I took the plunge. After conquering the first one, I want to make a million of these clothesline baskets. A million! Additionally, I'm loving the simple stripe in this basket. We're exploring all things Scandinavian this month, and this basket fills the bill with equal parts monochrome and texture.
Are you ready for a crazy-quick sewing project? I'm calling this the "half hour half apron" because it's one of the fastest sewing projects I think I've ever completed. Honestly, if I busted out a few more of these half aprons, I believe I could get my time down to 15 minutes. No sweat. My point is, this half apron is a breeze to make. This is a perfect project for beginner sewers. Plus, who doesn't need an adorable handmade apron in their kitchen?
Oh mud cloth. You are so dreamy. So unique. So hot-right-now. And so not in my budget. Even though this unique textile is hard to come by, it's easy enough to recreate the look. If you can't buy it, you DIY it, right? This mud cloth fake-out method is great for larger surfaces, or when you want to add some statement to a room.
I've been wanting a scroll saw for awhile, so when I saw this Instructable, you can probably guess what I did. Squealed like a little girl! Yes, it's possible to convert an old sewing machine into a scroll saw.
