I Spy… from Sew French

I have no idea why my sister and I chose this, thread catching, fabric to be used in a thread infested sewing room, but I suspect it was because it was what we had on hand, at the time. This is my sewing room, go-to stool. The one without casters, that I stand on constantly because I am not quite tall enough to reach the high shelves and the rolly chair is a little risky. I can not tell you how long it has looked this way, but I am sure it has been more than 10 years since we ...

Scrappy Little Journal from Under The Evening Star

Scrappy Journal

I've had this little moleskin journal floating around for while and I've been thinking about adding some strips of washi tape to add a little color. I rounded up my washi tape and then I thought of all the pretty fabric scraps that I have and started wishing I could find a quick easy way to use them instead. Hmmm? How to turn fabric into washi tape? I thought I'd seen someone online use double stick tape but of course it wasn't in my drawer. (Someone in my house loves to tape her art work up ...
