It's UEA break for my kids, we started by reorganizing their rooms, which turned into me making new pillow covers and then it snowballed from there.
I bought this fabric 2 years ago, with great plans for it, well, as you can tell, those dreams weren't long lived *small giggle*

But today just seemed right for a project. So I ventured to make cushion covers, a match fabric banner, & a table runner. Fabric banners are such a cute way to dress things up, I'm thinking of making some for my hula girls!

Thrift store find

Picked this up a DI for $1.50, one of the reasons I love thrift stores! It's pretty ornate & didn't need much, just a new coat of paint. One of my new favorite spray paints is Rust-oleum metallic. For this project I used black.

Brilliant Metal Finish

I started out wanting to just paint the wood frame around the metal design, but I ended up spraying the entire piece. I wanted to get rid of the rust.

I love the finish the paint gave it & didn't need to add another coat to seal it. 

So here is the before & after.

The Bench Project

The bench redo I did w/ my cousin Leti! She picked up a piece at DI & we recovered the top w/ that beautiful yellow chevron print outdoor fabric. And painted it a charcoal gray. We spent the afternoon working on this & some Banbury donuts yum! This was an easy & fun project.

Scrap Apron

I recently did a project with my cousin Leti of My Sweet Disposition. The next morning the left over fabric was staring me in the face. This fabric was just too cute to leave in a scrap pile, so the sewing began. It's been so long since I've actually done a sewing project and boy did it feel SO good! By the time I was done, I was ready to start a new project! That extra burst of energy was short lived lol!  It was a sew as you go type of project w/ no pattern but I am eager to make another one soon!

It's been some time since I have visisted this blog. It seems with life, I have lost a little of the passion & love I have for crafting. When more important issues are at hand, the little things this hula girl enjoys have taken a back seat. BUT the love is still there! I've done projects here & there but not taken the time to post pictures. Soon enough I will be back at it, filling your readers list with posts.

Baby gift

This was a rushed project that practically pushed all the othera a month out lol. Babies come when they want :) The front and back are baby fleece and I lined the center with quilting batting to give it some substance. I didn't take step by step pics because I was in such a rush, got these done in an hour.
