I’m going to start this post with an apology to my mom for what I’m about to reveal as my new favorite thing.
I think the only thing that frightens me more than spiders is a sewing machine. Sure, I can set up a blog, run an online shop, homeschool my kids, take care of my husband’s business, but the thought I’ve sitting down in front of a sewing machine scares the bejeebers out of me.
I would like to learn to sew, and I’m not a total stranger to the concept; I did take 4-H sewing in my younger days. I know I could expand my horizons so much more if I could just stitch away-such as the pillow pattern my mom sent me. Bless her heart! (I can say that now, ‘cause I live in the South) I do have intentions of trying to tackle that pattern soon, but in the meantime I’ve discovered Liquid Stitch!
This stuff is awesome!
I used it to
sew glue this pillow together to go in my latest bazaar item.
Granted, it was a little sticky in the beginning, and I had to remember which way to apply it so I would have a good looking seam, but I am THRILLED with the way it turned out. It now resides in this kitty bed.
I took a donated wine crate, painted it with black paint, distressed it a tad and stenciled on the Kitty word. The cushion is slightly smaller than I would like it, but I had to make do with the fabric I had.
Ta da! Stay tuned for more reveals in the days to come.
And mom, once again, I’m sorry I had to revert to glue.
P.S. I just discovered that my rusty spring recipe card holder was featured over at Coastal Charm’s Nifty Thrifty Tuesday Party! Thanks, Linda! Be sure and head over to enter her giveaway for a $25 Target gift card to celebrate her 100th linky party.
