Who doesn’t like a good party?

Spooky Sew Junie

Good afternoon from the #sewjunie camper!! It’s almost time for Halloween and Sew Junie is ready for chilly nights filled with tricks and treats. I wish I could have the kids get their candy from the camper, sadly, I don’t think the parents would like for their littles to go into my backyard. I’ll have to save the camper for my family and friends after the candy it all doled out. For now, let’s grab a cup of mulled apple cider and I’ll give you a tour of the camper! I hope you enjoyed my spooky little camper!! I can’t wait to decorate the camper for Christmas!! I’m working on a holiday fabric for Spoonflower that I’ll use to make up lots of pillows and such. I can’t wait to share it with you all. xoxox, Kelly

Umbrella-Ready Oilcloth Tablecloth Pattern

Spring is in full bloom and it’s time to head outside for dinner! My Umbrella-Ready Tablecloth pattern will help you make a summers worth of memories at your old outdoor table. The instructions found in my book,  At Home with Modern June, will walk you through how to make your own pattern that is customized for your table. I have all the supplies you need at ModernJune.com to get you stitching; oilcloth, hook and loop tape, bias tape and a copy of At Home with Modern June is all you need to get started! Need help with yardage? Email me with the size of your table and I’ll help you with the figure all that out!

Some of you know that I sell oilcloth and laminated cotton, two fabrics can often be used for the same type of projects. (Read more about the two types of fabric here!) But this is one of those times when …

Perfect Pairings: Super Bowl Party

Preparing for your annual Super Bowl party doesn’t have to take a lot of work, not when you use oilcloth and make a Target run. Check out how I take 4 yards of oilcloth to make a “Super” party for next months big game. I started with 2 yards of oilcloth and laid it across the width of the table. Oilcloth doesn’t not fray or ravel so i just need to true up the corners to make sure the that I had a perfect rectangle. Use your rotary cutter, ruler and mat, or a simple pair of scissors. Seriously, it only takes 10 minutes to make it pretty and practical. Oilcloth cleans up fast and protects your tables while showing your team sprite. To clean, just wipe clean with a gentle cleaning spray and damp cloth. Easy peasy. I’m not kidding you when I tell you that I don’t know a single thing about football, but I do know how to shop for fun party goods. Thanks to Google I know the team colors for …
