This post is dedicated to two people; two bloggers I really admire. To
1. Janice from postcardsfromwildwood– for being an inspiration. She is just beyond normal when it comes to needle work, she is extraordinary. Maybe one day, I’ll be able to stitch patterns like her, but again, maybe its her magic wicker basket after all. Contemplating a thievery. Check her post: Hungarian rhapsody to see what I mean.
2. Kristin from Myuncommonsliceofsuburbia– again for inspiring me to live out of the box on a budget and for the tutorial. She is probably one of the most talented DIY-ing blogger I have seen, by far. And yes, I do see a lot of blogs from around the world, being someone from the digital industry.
Kristin from MyUncommonSliceOfsuburbia blogged a beautiful tutorial on fabric rosettes, seeing which I was really inspired. But again, those who know me, knows that I’m no good with needle and thread or lets just say that I don’t have a sewing thumb! But surprisingly this time I made it. Maybe, finally, God listened to my prayers of delivering me from being such a lousy-needle-n-thread-girl.
This is a great and a very easy makeover theory and takes only a couple of minutes! Even for someone like me. I took scrap clothing from the side of an old bedspread that matches my new quilt, tore it down to rags (in strips, no precision required), twined it and kept swirling around a knot that i formed before twirling the cloth. And as I went, i kept stitching it to the previous layers from below. My cushion was ready to be used in less than 10 minutes. Isnt it real fun?
