U- Create January craft

I've mentioned how much I LOVE U Create Crafts, but I'm going to say it yet again. This site is totally filled with awesomeness! A few weeks ago I found a tab I had never clicked on called: Create with me. Every month there is a featured craft that is pretty easy and inexpensive that you can follow along with. This months was a darling rosette frame that had the saying, "Keep Calm and Sew On." Can you believe I hadn't tried rosettes yet?! I was super excited to try this craft out.

This is what the frame looked like before

I bought the frame at the local thrift store and only spent $1.50. The fabric for the rosettes was from Joann's. I also tweaked the saying a tad since I'm not a sewer, and printed the lettering off my cricut. Old Mac is giving me a corner of the office as a craft area. The colors of the frame are the colors I'm going to be doing!! I'm so excited for my first completed craft area knick knack!!

I'm linking up this project to Wildflowers and Whimsy, I Heart Naptime, Keeping it SimpleSumo's Sweet StuffCraft'O Maniac, Sassy Sites, Not Just a HousewifeSisters Stuff, and House of Hepworths

  3. Saw your blog from Thrifty Decor Chick, and just wanted to comment on your chairs. I learned recently that you can put the plastic under the material, and it works just as well! I just scotch-guarded my material, and put the plastic underneath to protect the cusions. Just wanted to share with you and great blog!
