While I don't change much of my basic decor very often, I do like to rotate things during the year such as pillowcases, curtains, etc. It is an inexpensive and easy way to make little changes here and there. First, I made these potholders (the larger one from this tutorial and the little one from this tutorial). Super fun and fairly quick. I need to make a few more to go with these.
And, I need to actually USE them. Yes, they are so cute that I've threatened my family not to use them, but to keep using the old ones. Kind of silly - like not using your pretty china because you're afraid it will break. But, what fun is that, right? So, I must toss the old ones and move on!
I didn't use the Insul-Brite, but instead used the silver quilted ironing board cover material that I used on... yes, my ironing board cover! Same basic idea - protect the skin.
I decided to switch my kitchen curtain back to this one. I LOVE this print. It should look very familiar - hint, hint - look around my blog! I also made something else with it that I will share soon. It is soft and reminds me of Valentine's Day which is just around the corner.
And finally, I changed the pillow covers on my couch and love seat. I was digging through my stash of "changeables" and didn't even remember making these! They say the memory is the first thing to go. But, it was a good "find" and I did finally recall making them. I really like the pillows in the first picture because "redwork" is one of my faves and the second picture shows some fleece that I found a few years ago and wish I had bought more of it! Yes, red is a favorite color of mine these days.
I hope to start on a quilt for my bed. I've been hoarding some pretty Tanya Whelan fabric for about a year now. Maybe I'm just scared to start the project. But, again - what good is it doing me sitting there in the fabric hutch when it could be gracing my bed?!
How about you? Do you do the "switch-a-roo" in your home?Pin It
