Welcome to February's installment of the pdq* Club with Jill Finley of Jillily Studio. Last month's project was so fun and fabulous. Did you get a chance to make an apron? If not, then check out the January's post. You can find a link to all of the pdq* Club information along the side bar. We have labeled each of the posts "pdq Club" and "Jill Finley." Please do share your finished projects! Either
e-mail us your photographs to karen [at] jaftex [dot] com or show them off on our Facebook page. We hope to see some finished projects! You can download a .pdf with photographs and instructions here.
This month's PDQ project is so fun and easy! I needed a place to keep my projects that I am currently working on in my sewing room. The idea here is to put away one project before starting on another one. That way, theoretically, I will have more surface area to work on! So I wanted just a cute container to throw things in by my sewing area. I remembered these hat boxes that I had stored away. They are nice and large and would be really cute stacked up by my machine. They were dirty and scratched up, and the wrong color. So I decided to cover them in fabric from my "Beyond the Gate" line. They turned out darling! And perfect for storing things away quickly that I need to access easily.
Decoupage is an easy process and doesn't take much time, except for waiting for it to dry. I also did a birdhouse in fabrics from my "Beyond the Gate" collection. The sky is the limit with this project! I hope you enjoy it, and let me know if you have ever decoupaged with fabric!
Thank you Jill for a very pretty way to organize the sewing area! We have last month's winner for a fabric bundle of our choice. Please send your information to karen [at] jaftex [dot] com. Congratulations!
Leave Jill some love here up until midnight March 19, 2013 and we will select another winner for a random bundle of fabric!
