Dyeing a patterned fabric

March 10 , 2013 by Ryan - in DIY, Easy

I have some sort of brain malfunction when it comes to buying patterned fabric. I buy them and then I stop liking them.  I still really liked this one, but I wanted the white to be an off white rather than a start white. So I decided to use a small amount of Rit liquid […]

Making a table runner

February 12 , 2013 by Ryan - in DIY

I love these. They are really easy and it makes a beautiful addition to a table. What I like about a runner is that it does not cover the entire table and it can be made from left over fabric.  I’m absolutely in love with this red fabric, it is the same fabric I used […]
