Lately. & Guest Post Call

Project #1
After making my Gray & Yellow Tunic, I had so many ideas on how I could use this pattern. My first task was to make a swim suit cover up for me.

I don't mind swimming, but I hate being in a bathing suit in front of everyone...enter my new cover up!

I priced different types of fabric for this project, but nothing was in the price range that I wanted to spend for my cover up. I stopped at Walmart for something else and decided to check out the fabric there. But when I walked in, there was a display in the front with beach towels on sale!

I bought 2 Better Homes & Gardens towels (normally $9.97) for $3.97 each! And I adore the pattern!

Project #2
And I picked up a yard of pink fabric for Layne's dress for $2.27/yd. For her dress, measured her, but adjusted the measurements based on the pattern (Seamingly Smitten) I used for my tunic.

I love how it turned out! It was such a quick sew too...maybe 30 minutes total. I still need to add a halter strap or some regular straps. Her boobies were hanging out at Meijer a few times...oops!

Project #3
So a few months ago, I told you that I was working on a new quilt for my bed. {March was a few months ago, right?} Well, I took it to my mom & dad's house to show my grandma back in May...and left it there until last week. And I have no parents live next door.

Anyway, I finally brought it home and started the quilting process. I have 13 lines to stitch and have 3 down...woo hoo!

I'll do the full reveal in a couple of weeks once I redo some lamp shades that need some major attention.

So, that's what I've been up to lately! How about you?

Oh...and linking up with some of these parties!

Also, I've got a week long series that I'm planning with a bloggy friend for early August!

I'm so excited about it!

But we need people to guest post upcycled/refashioned clothes tutorial.
