30 Minute Elastic Waist School Spirit Skirt

10 Sep 2015


Hi everyone! Today I have a quick and easy skirt tutorial for you. With older kids heading off to college, younger kids getting settled into their new classes, football games, meet-the-teacher days and back-to-school nights,  I'm feeling some school spirit!

With the soft, stretchy new Riley Blake Waistband Elastic (available in 5 colors), this skirt comes together very quickly.  We seriously clocked this, and from start to finish, this little skirt was made in well under 30 minutes! Can't beat that! Let's get started. For ... ...read more

Project Design Team Wednesday ~ Modern Minis Table Runner

09 Sep 2015

    I am a big believer that the things that surround us seep into our being and become part of who we are.  Because of that, I try to bring things into my home that inspire and will encourage my children to become all they have the potential to be.  When I saw the great quotes in the Modern Minis line from Lori Holt I knew it would be perfect for a runner.  I want my kids to read the sayings over and over, and I hope it will become part of who they are.  Plus the bright scrappy fabrics are ... ...read more

TBT Modern: Dutchman's Puzzle

03 Sep 2015


Today's Traditional Block Thursday tutorial on the Penny Rose Blog, is the Dutchman's Puzzle Block. I LOVE the look of this block! It is eye-catching, has lots of movement to it, and best of all - it is easy to put together! I started out by mimicking Bonnie's block, using two tones of yellow with white "sky." I used: Sunshine, Daffodil, and Clean White. The effect is bright & sunny. I like the fact that you can focus on the darker yellow and see a pinwheel, or you can focus on the pairs of triangles, which look a bit ... ...read more

Hi everyone, this is Julia here! I am excited to show off this cute little pencil case or emergency pouch - perfect for back-to-school!
