Today our friend Sophie, writer and creator of the most beautiful sewing blog Ada Spragg, visits the blog to share two of her favorite me-made summer weather accessories. Get out your sewing machine, grab some colorful fabric, and get ready to turn up the beet because you’re going to want to stitch up both of these projects ASAP!
A DIY nursery doesn’t always mean you have to break out the sewing machine! Using a hack on Spoonflower’s Fill-a-Yard® feature, Stefanie of The Style Safari is showing just how easy it is to create a custom name garland – no sewing required. The hardest part? Deciding which designs to use from the Spoonflower Marketplace of more than 650,000 designs!
Stefanie: I’m thrilled to share this tutorial as the ‘secret ingredient’ to my baby’s nursery. Since no one but my husband and I know our baby’s name yet, this has been a fun project to keep quiet! I absolutely wanted to decorate my daughter’s nursery with some fun wall art, but I tend to be very picky on art, and for a baby girl nursery, I wanted everything to feel personalized and special. Enter this easy custom name garland tutorial, where you can hang the letters in any way you choose, or opt to display them more like blocks on a shelf for more versatility. This is a great way to use Spoonflower’s Fill-a-Yard® feature, so have fun mixing up some of your favorite prints from the Spoonflower community!

Using just a few yards of Chiffon and an oversized embroidery hoop, The Style Safari is showing how you can transform a nursery reading nook into a dreamy escape. While Stefanie might be including this project in her daughter’s nursery, a chiffon canopy is a great addition for any room in the home.
If you’re looking for a functional and stylish way to transport small items, look no further than the DIY drawstring bag. It sews up quick thanks to this free PDF pattern, and only uses 1 yard of fabric and some drawstring. We can’t stop making them in our Lightweight Cotton Twill!

Whoever said wallpaper was just meant for your walls didn’t know Stefanie Schoen, the ultimate do-it-yourselfer behind the blog The Style Safari. The mom-to-be has been prepping for her little baby girl’s arrival and has taken on the task of designing her daughter’s nursery from floor to ceiling. While this might seem like a daunting task for some, it’s a walk in the park for Stefanie. She recently did an entire wallpaper refresh in her dining room while seven months pregnant — on her own! There’s nothing this lady can’t do!
