A new look for Sew Junie!

I have a big hug to all of you for following along with my Camp S’more Series. It was a whole lot of fun! I couldn’t have done it without the support of Ink and Arrow Fabrics, my lovely sponsor! My Sew Junie camper is my little she shed of sorts. I use it as a craft, sewing, and art studio when I want to run away from home. Sew Junie is a great place to sit and embroider (and nap). I recently found a few travel pennants, both old and new, are super fab in my camper! I’d love to have one from every city and/or that I’ve lived in. Only 6, or 7 to go. I love it when people gift me junk! This sweet little yellow shelf was passed down to me from my BNF (best neighbor friend), Janet! Someday I’ll take off the contact paper and paint it up until then I’ll enjoy its very shabby self. My camper came with the original table, but I keep it stored in our …

Camp S’more Series: Camping Stool

I love a good staple project, they are satisfying because they are so quick to do. I’m aways on the lookout for foot and camping stools at flea markets and vintage fairs like the Country Living Fair. In fact, I’ve shown many audiences at those events how easy it is to recover these stools at those fairs during my oilcloth days! I picked up these up from a local vintage vendor a few years ago. I found a ton of vintage camping stools for sale on Etsy. I even found this stool that is exactly like my pair. Buying local is best, this way you can skip shipping and check the camping stool for studiness. Camping Stool Redo Supplies: 1/3 yard of Fireflies and Bug Jar fabric 1/3 yard of canvas, home decor denim (I used a scrap of fabric from my stash.) Scissors Rotary cutter, acrylic ruler and cutting mat Diagonal cutting pliers Staple gun with 1/4″ staples Step 1: Measure the old canvas that makes up the seat of the stool and jot …

Sew Junie: Demo and Damage

Last week I showed you the camper before I really started getting down with the demolition, and this week I’m going to show you what I took out! Before I really started taking down the plywood and insulation, I chose to take out the bunk bed that hung above the window, this way I could see how much water damage and rot there was around the leaky window. Once I got that heavy thing out of the way, I was really happy with the results as it really gives you more head room and it feels less claustrophobic! “Win” on space, “boo” on water damage! I’m not going to sugar coat this, this part of the job is gross. The rotten plywood is a splintery mess and fiberglass insulation is the pits!! The rotten wood framing was just heart breaking. The rot on the top of the window is from the leaky running lights that run across the top of the camper’s back. See all the dirt on the left of the photo? That’s from …
