School might be out for the summer, but for Ashley Bible, the English literature teacher behind the blog Building Book Love, you can still find her in the classroom. Swapping out her grade book for gift wrap, Ashley transformed her classroom with a DIY project you’ll want to… check out. “I’m a strong believer that your environment, whether that be your home or your classroom, can influence your daily energy, imagination, and joy.”
Ashley: During the school year my students and I spend almost as many waking hours in our classroom as we do in our homes. Because of this, I set out to create an imaginative, inspiring, and welcoming space in which to spend our days learning. Since I’m a high school English teacher, I wanted my classroom design to reflect and encourage a love of reading and writing. As I was brainstorming what this design might look like, I came across this stunning book pattern by Magenta Rose Designs on Spoonflower.

We first met embroidery artist and kit designer Michelle Galletta of Kiriki Press while working together on a quick and easy DIY project for attendees of the Create: Now Summit. To say it was love at first stitch would be an understatement! Michelle has the ability to bring fabric to life with her extraordinary embroidery skills and today, we’re so thrilled to welcome Michelle to the blog to share her Matryoskha dolls with the entire Spoonflower community.
Just like the traditional Russian nesting dolls where the artistry is found in the way the dolls’ outfits are decorated, Michelle’s dolls will come to life as you embroider the cut & sew pattern with your own personal spin.
