Camp S’more Series: Pillow-Palooza!

Welcome back to my Camp S’more Series. It’s pillow day!! Thanks to the kind folks at Ink and Arrow Fabrics my Sew Junie camper is getting a mini-makeover. This cute fabric is just perfect for my 1971 Shasta Camper that I took from 70’s to farmhouse cozy 2 years ago. When I started my pillow-palooza, I really wanted to mix it up. I wanted this set of pillow covers to be fun and exciting, with a lot of patchwork and pattern play. Most importantly, I needed to get them done quickly. What I didn’t want was to go to the fabric store. I had my stack of Camp S’mores fabric from Ink and Arrow, a mountain of pillow forms, and my handy stash of trims. What I was short of were invisible zippers. Originally, I had intended to use my basic invisible zip pillow cover pattern from At Home with Modern June.

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 …

Sweet Revival Sewing Challenge

I’ve just been introduced to Ink and Arrow Fabrics in the last few months. I found the first fun print from them at my LQS, Quilting Adventures. A fat quarter of the Christmas Doors print from the Naughty or Nice collection had to come home with me. I made (OK, almost finished) a radiator cover out of it, that you can see on my Instagram feed here and here. Then the ladies from Wives of Whitewood asked me to be a part of the Sweet Rebellion Sewing Challenge blog hop.The Sweet Rebellion fabric line is designed by Felicia Gallo for Ink and Arrow Fabrics. Bee bold with these soft & pretty flowers mingling with sugar skulls and chains…In pinks, greys and black, it’s just a tad rebellious… a Sweet Rebellion by ©Felicia Gallo. I picked the Packed Lilly of the Valley and gray Sugar Skulls (in trade for tutorial) to make an embroidered table runner. I love the fun prints on the gray, it feels playful and grown up to me. The embroidery pattern has …
