If we must say so ourselves (and sometimes we must), these little coin purses are about as adorable as they come! Not only do they get five stars on the cuteness chart, they are super easy to make. Make one for yourself (because you deserve it!), then make a bundle for your friends.

The life of a college student involves attending many events, from parties, to football games, to concerts on campus.
Today, we have a very special guest post from local sewing legend, Sharon Blair. Sharon runs Portland Sewing , where she and her faculty teach a wide range of classes including industrial techniques. I had the pleasure of meeting Sharon recently and asked her to fill us in on some tips home sewers can take away from industry practices.

All my closest friends know that I ( Chanel ) am forever on the search for the perfect, chic lunch box. And believe it or not, a lot of the prettiest and well-designed carriers out there are super expensive. So with this personal challenge in mind and with Picnic Week in the air, I was inspired to create my very own reusable lunch bag. Taking my pattern directly from the handy-dandy, classic paper lunch sacks that I predict will be around forever and ever, I put together this canvas version that’s reusable, washable and most of all, super pretty . There was a lot of hand-stitiching involved, but it wasn’t difficult at all and I’m head-over-heels in love with the final product. Keep reading for instructions, and I’d love to know how you all transport food around stylishly!
When starting on the wonderful and exciting journey of making your own clothes or altering old ones there is one thing you will definitely need to make your job easier...that is a dress form. There are many tutorials on the web but the best one I found is the one I am going to share with you.
*NOTE - There are other examples of painted upholstery (mostly from readers) on the Chairs page at the top of the blog. In addition, there are other upholstery painting methods on that page, if you are interested. I recently painted an upholstered chair and have been asked about the process.
You all know we love a good Anthropologie knockoff around here – so a couple of days ago when I was browsing online I came across this mirror. Oh I definitely need that.
