Want to turn your table into a spooky setting for a Halloween feast? Heidi Kenney (our resident Queen of Halloween) is stopping by the blog today to share the how-to, using her cut-and-sew placemat template available in the Spoonflower Marketplace. Designed to be printed on 54″ wide fabrics (linen would also work), a fat quarter fits two placemats, and a yard gives you eight. Pick a FQ or yard up in Eco Canvas fabric, then follow her easy steps below to sew up these adorable placemats for a table-scape that’s fit for a family of goblins and ghouls!
It's the Monday before Christmas and all through the house…we're scrambling to finish crafting and gift-wrapping each package to perfection! If you're anything like us, you would agree that the outside of the package is just as important as the contents inside. It takes a bit more time and effort to hand dye a ribbon, or cut a paper snowflake, but so totally worth it when your loved ones see that you care enough to add those thoughtful, by-hand details on their gifts. You know what's often sooo not worth it, though? Waiting in giant lines at big-box craft stores the week before Christmas to buy wrapping supplies!
All throughout this week, we plan to get resourceful by using items from around the house to make beautifully wrapped gifts that are truly unique & cut down on waste. Here's a bit of inspiration so that you can do the same! Show us how you're wrapping your gifts this week with hashtag #MakeItMondaySF!
