26 Mar 2014

 Ironing Board Cover and storage pocket - http://mellysews.com

Hey y'all - I'm Melissa, from Melly Sews, and I am THRILLED to be part of the Riley Blake Project Design team! So, for those of you who don't know me, I'm pretty picky about details. And I'm going to share a scary photo now - consider yourself warned about the original state of my ironing board. I'm kind of embarrassed by how bad that looks. Therefore when I started thinking about my first project, this one was an obvious eyesore in my pretty new studio. In addition to the ugly discoloration on my original cover ... ...read more

Germany and the h+h show

24 Mar 2014

 

 There are a few places on earth I would consider absolutely magical and Rothenburg ob der tauber, Germany is one of those places. It is a quaint village, located on the romantic road of Germany,  that narrowly escaped being destroyed in WW2.      Some of the homes are almost 1000 years old, which for me is almost unbelievable when most of our historical buildings reach a mere 200 years old.    There was no shortage of charm anywhere in the town and I was mesmerized by the place. And for all those Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fans, this is where many of ... ...read more

Hello everyone, this is my first time here as a member of the design Team and I am very excited! I am Sachiko from Tea Rose home, where I share my sewing/craft tutorials and ideas.

Book-to-Bag Repurpose

05 Mar 2014


We LOVE books at our house. I know we can read books on our phones & other forms of technology, but I am still partial to a real book with real pages in it. Here is a fun idea for re-purposing those books that have pages coming away from the spines, or are only interesting because of their cool vintage cover. You Will Need: an old book black pen box cutter several pieces of fabric (I used pieces from Riley Blake's new Pepe in Paris Collection for the first bag, and pieces from the new British Invasion Collection for the ... ...read more
