My loft is my dream craft studio and also my dream sewing room.
I can spread out my sewing machine on one end of the table, my little ironing board on the other, and still have a nice big space in the middle of the table for cutting out fabric, and I can hang my ironed fabric on the railing so it doesn't get wrinkled again while I'm working on a different piece.
I am so lucky, and I love my loft!
My most recent sewing project was to turn some old pillows
and some Jo-Ann fabric (40% off with coupon, of course)
into pillows for my front porch.
I made quick and easy envelope-back pillow covers so I can get them off and on easily for laundering. The colors match the neutral look I'm decorating my front porch with this year, and the pattern follows the French theme I'm using.
I'm actually color blind in these color shades and often see brown as red and red as orange, so I asked my family to help me out with my color choices this year. We might be seeing completely different colors in these photos, but I hope you like them anyway!
Tucker kept me company while I worked on the pillow covers.
Sometimes he crawls under the table and naps behind the skirt near the open window, and sometimes he lays on his bed.
When I finished sewing and got up to take all the pillows downstairs, I didn't find him under the table and turned around to find his bed empty, too.
But the love seat was occupied!
This is why I don't have my long dreamed-of white slipcover.
Anyway, the good news is I'm almost finished with my front porch decorating, and I'm going to go sit out there right now to enjoy the rest of this lovely Sunday morning.
I hope you're enjoying yours, too!
