Last month I hit the twelve year mark with this blog. I started this blog in February 2009 just for fun and to document a house remodel, and after two years I started making money with my content, so it became my career. I’ve been a DIY and design blogger longer than I ever practiced law. Over the years I’ve written editorial content for magazines, partnered with dozens of brands, remodeled a few houses, and written about all my design related favorite things. My blog anniversary went right by and I forgot all about it so happy 12 year anniversary to me!
I love getting creative with fabric, both designing it, and making things with it. Like all content creators, I often feel pressure to come up with new ideas, that’s the job, but I forget that the archives hold a lot of inspiration too. So today I’m looking back and featuring fabric projects from the past, some of them are almost ten years old! Looking back, many of these projects make me smile. I’d choose more modern fabrics if I was recreating them, but they are still great ideas.
Some of these require a sewing machine, but my theory has always been if you can sew a straight line you can sew these projects too.
