Hello! Welcome to Episode 6 of The DIY Dish! If the thought of making a quilt is a bit overwhelming, what about taking those same favorite fabrics of yours and turning them into a unique fabric-covered canvas? This isn’t your normal fabric canvas…we are showing a fun and easy “stitch and flip” method that can be used on not only this, but also to make baby blankets and quilts!
Here are a few more photos!
If you were to make these, what fabric colors or lines would you choose to do this in? There are so many possibilities! Post a comment here or join the conversation on our Facebook page!
We recently had the opportunity to attend and interview some amazing people at The Creative Connection event. One such person was Holly Becker, best-selling author and interior designer.
Have you ever wanted to decorate a room, but not sure where to start? Feel overwhelmed by the amount of decorating ideas out there and how they may fall into your personal decorating style? Do you live in a space where decorating is limited? We hope our interview with Holly leaves you inspired and ready to tackle any room…today!
Looking for a thousand more ideas? Find them in Holly’s best-selling book: Decorate. Find daily inspiration on Holly’s blog, Decor8, too! Thank you Holly for sharing your time with us so that all of us could be inspired!
When photos of Kris’ new shop went on the web, the question most sent in at the time was “How did you make those fabric roses that stand in the vase?” Well, now you’re “in the know” because this week’s episode shows you how easy and fun they are to make. And in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we are making them in pink!
These are sure to brighten your own home or even make someone else’s day. Here are a few more photos!
Welcome to another week of The DIY Dish! This week we are demonstrating how to make “My Girlfriend’s Breakfast Club Apron!” We’ll also show a very cool way for gathering fabric (no more pulling bobbin threads for this one! You’ll love it!)
This apron created for a special event being held at Kris’ quilt shop. And over the next year, we will have a regular column in the magazine, Where Women Cook, that features not only DIY projects, but breakfast recipes, too! So it was only fitting to start with an apron as our first project! Here are some more photos!
These would make easy gifts to give to friends and family! A basket filled with a muffin or cookie pan, mix, and an apron would be super cute, don’t you think?
If you’re interested in a complete kit to make this apron, you can find them on sale for the next 2 days — Monday and Tuesday, October 17-18, 2011 at www.MyGirlfriendsQuiltShoppe.com! There are a ton of fabric combination kits to choose from!
The kit will not only have the fabrics, but also the “extras” that you’ll need to complete it: the decorative button, snap, bias tape, and even that “waffle cloth!”
Have a wonderful week everyone!
