This striking indoor/outdoor space has it all. The elegant dropped chandelier works perfectly as a focal point indoors with surrounding exposed brick walls and a fur throw against a rustic bench. Step outside the large steel-framed door and you’ll find greenery, cobblestones, a reclaimed wooden table, and antique cafe chairs. It’s everything you could ever want in an indoor/outdoor living space!
National Sewing Month is almost over. Have you taken up any new projects this month? If not, here’s an easy DIY pillow tutorial to try!
Before throwing out that old t-shirt that doesn’t fit anymore, has a hole in it, or has unraveling stitching, recycle it by making a throw pillow! Tees that have a graphic on them work great, or you can even use a plain white tee and add a quote or ruffles to it.
What you will need: T-shirt, Scissors, Pins, Pillow Stuffing, Sewing Machine or Needle & Thread
Step 1: Iron the t-shirt and lay it on a flat surface.
Step 2: Decide how big you want the pillow and mark it with chalk or a marker, making sure to allow an extra 1/2″ all around for seam allowance.
Step 3: Pin the front and back sides of the t-shirt together within your markings and cut both pieces together.
Step 4: With right sides of the pillow together, sew with a 1/2″ seam allowance, all around leaving 2″ open to stuff the pillow.
Step 5: Once the pillow is stuffed, sew the 2″ opening closed by hand. That’s it!
