Hi dear ones!
This week the boys have been going to Vacation Bible School at our church.
Here we are on Monday morning. :D
With them gone, I had a few hours each morning to do my Mama Work.
That's what James calls it anyway.
While cleaning, unpacking and doing the laundry I snuck in a little Crafty Creation time.
I'm so excited to finally be revealing this project.
It's been in the works for awhile.
Several weeks ago while in Tuesday Mornings I saw these outdoor place mats with the most fabulous colors.
Upon inspection I decided I could convert them into throw pillows for the front porch rockers.
I ripped the seam to provide a little opening.
And yes, the bandaide on my finger is where I stabbed myself.
But hey, no pain, no gain!
Next it was time to put to use a couple of bags of Poly-fil.
I picked them up several months ago for $1.07 each.
Insert SqUEaL here!
I stuffed them full, they probably held 1/2 bag each.
Once I had them all lined up and waiting it was time to drag out the sewing machine.
This was my very first attempt at sewing.
Yes, that means I had to bust out the owner's manual! ;>
I may not sew the straightest lines,
but I got the job done.
I even did reinforced stitches!!!
For under $15 I have four outdoor pillows
my color inspiration for the summer decor.
What do you think,
is my Crafty Creation sad or spectacular?
Edited for my friends:
Here's a run down of where my porch decor came from.
Pillows- Tuesday Mornings
Green Felt Flower Decor-Hobby Lobby ( I think they were place mats too?! )
Orange Basket/Tray- Hobby Lobby ( last year )
Flowers- Hobby Lobby ( I didn't realize I shopped there so much! )

Thanks for all your words of encouragement, ya'll are the best! :D
