vintage fabric scraps

Happy Sweet Day!
Hope that you are having a lovely week and are looking forward to some sweetness this weekend! Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my quilty goodness! You always know how to brighten my day! 
The other day I was inspired through Pinterest to have a little crafty time with some Mod Podge and vintage fabric scraps. I have had this "N" that I bought awhile back at Hobby Lobby and was deciding on covering it in either yarn or fabric, but with a little inspiration, I knew the fabric was the perfect vintagey touch for it! 
So, I layered away with all the pretty fabrics and now have a most lovely vintage letter "N" to display in my living room! A simple and sweet project! 
Another hexie flower finished, and I think that I have finally figured out that I will need to make 28, with some half flowers for the edges. Hopefully you won't get tired of seeing them! ;) 
What are your plans for the weekend? I will be working away on some sewing projects, and planning out my next set of vintage embroidery flour sack tea towels for the shoppe, and these will all be featuring some of the floral gingham fabrics from Lecien's new Flower Sugar line! Can't wait to show you!! 

Wishing you all a beautiful and creative weekend!!

  9. Love your fabric decoupage letter it looks so sweet next to that lovely typewriter and oil lamp (swoon!). Your hexies are so lovely Heather, how will we ever tire if anything you make. I also bought some of that lovely leicien fabric from sew dearly a while back and can't wait to use it for my shop which will hopefully (fingers crossed) be opening at the end if the year. Enjoy your crafting away this weekend. I also hope that things are going well with your husband lovely Heather. Sending you much love xoxo

  10. I'm off selling faeries at a local craft fayre this weekend. Your little oil lamp next to your nifty "N" made me smile we had a green one growing up as kids, came in handy during the power cuts of the early 70's ~ Sarah x

  11. Brilliant idea with the fabric and the letter. Emma would love something like that for her room. I always find inspiration whenever I visit your blog.

    PS. I've always admired your typewriter too. My husband came home with a similar one yesterday from an estate sale. It's a tad bit rough and very dusty. I'm thinking of using it as part of a Halloween display.

  21. I love your fabric scraps 'N' - not scrappy at all with a bit of mod podge magic! It would look purrrrfect in my big girls room - in fact her name even starts with an 'N' ... I feel a new project coming on!

  25. The pretty letter looks gorgeous, and is perfect next to the lovely vintage typewriter! Your hexies are looking lovely too and worth the time they take......and I certainly won't get tired of seeing them. Am looking forward to doing some more this week too.

  26. The details in your photos are so captivating as is your work! Bring on the hexies!!

  27. I think that N stands for, "No! You must give this to Janelle! She has a random N in her name and a couple of random Ns in her middle name too!" I adore what you did and I'm going to totally steal your idea. Not the N (rats) because I need a R. Now, I just need some vintage fabric scraps. Next estate sale I go to I know what I'm hunting for! LOVE this!

  28. HI Heather! Oh, the N is darling! I love all of the sweet fabrics you've used too. I've thought of doing something like this for my little grand daughter, but that's as far as it's gone - a thought! :)
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
