Sewing Rehab


OK, I have fallen off the sewing wagon (duh right...pretty obvious since this is only my 2nd post for 2010!) and I just ran across this "challenge" so to speak while catching up on some of my favorite bloggers recent goings on. I think I will give it a whirl. If you care to join click the button and read all about it!

Modge Podge Anyone? (and yes I am still alive)

Well hello there! Long time no chat, but I am here:)

Finally got around to a little crafting and thought I would share. Made the mom's some flower pots for Mother's Day. I have discovered Modge Podge and I must say I am hooked. I always knew it existed of course, but I had never actually gotten around to messing with it until now. I painted some terra cotta pots (and sealed the inside with some polyeurathane) and wanted to hand paint some designs on them. I am not much of a painter outside stripes and polka dots so I thought why not Modge Podge some fabric onto them instead. I found a couple prints in my stash and cut out the flowers and stuck them on there. It was a fun little project and super easy...and I really like how they turned out! Here is a pic of one of the pots...



This is my first experience with painting pots so I don't know how well they will stand up to watering and such. I sealed the insides and outside after many (many, many)coats of the MP. Only time will tell I guess and if not I may have to tweak my methods for next time. If anyone has any pointers please let me know:)

Hope all you mom's out there had a fantastic Mother's Day:)
