Western Floor Pouf

A month or two ago, I got this western themed duck fabric for $6 a yard! SCORE.  I bought 3 yards of it because I knew I wanted to make an Amy Butler Floor Pouf with it. I finally got around to doing this last Saturday Afternoon – it took maybe 2 1/2 hours total (including a trip to the local craft store to buy 10lbs of polyfil).  I forgot how easy this pattern is – remember back to 2+ years ago when I made my first AB floor pouf.  Go ahead, click on the link and imagine the wavy lines and harp music as you travel back in time…..

Okay welcome back to 2016.  So I remembered one of my greatest complaints about this pattern was that you a) have to hand sew it shut and b) can’t really do anything once you get it dirty.  Sadly the floor pouf from 2014 was thrown away in the great migration west in 2015.  Well, to solve that issue – I decided to sew a zipper on the bottom of the pouf to prevent that from happening again.  Now if I need to wash it, I can just remove the polyfil and wash the pouf easy peasy!

Baby Quilt Fabric

Since I’m officially losing my mind at the Farm House, I decided to take some time to talk about another hobby I have in the mix.  Baby Quilt or as it shall be used in my home CAT QUILT! I signed up for a class at the end of May with Lois and I am just counting down the days.

I have never taken a class at Fancy Tiger – but they do have a … well, fancy, set up. Here is the class info.

I have been hoarding quilting fabric for years, so I figured starting off simple would give me the motivation and interest to dive into real fabric piecing and traditional quilting.

Here is the fabric I got for my little baby blanket! EEEE PUGS!  Fabricworm is a super cute site with TONS of quilting fabric.  This fabric is high quality and I can’t wait to get started.

In the past I have also joined a ‘fabric of the month’ club with Pink Castle Fabrics. I really love their ‘Kawaii’ or Japanese fabric.  They have a lot of different ‘fabric of the month clubs’ and they are really well priced.

Here is some past fabric I have received from Pink Castle:

Anyways!  I can’t wait to get my craft room all set up and start sewing more than just curtains 😉

This is my current state of mind at the house:

Scuba Lee

My pug leopold loves to swim. And when I say he loves to swim it’s a gross understatement.  This little guy has been swimming since he was about 6 months old and has always been obsessed with the pool. When we moved to back to Colorado, I found that there was an indoor dog pool literally across the street from our house so I decided to take him. 

This must be what having a child and being proud of them is like, because I’m so proud of this little shit I could just cry.

Turkey Crochet Hat

I saw a turkey crochet hat on Instagram yesterday so last night I decided to make my own version. I think I’ll go ahead and just start making all these outfits/hats for the tribe for all holidays. Plus I’m already thinking about Boris as a Swedish opera singer with the hat and braids……
