Glitter N Glue DIY Gold Leaf Leopard Rainboots

It rains 3 days out of the year here in sunny SoCal, but on the days it does it’s a torrential downpour and I am NEVER prepared! I can never find my umbrella or suitable wet weather footwear. And of course on those rainy days I usually have a laundry list of errands and spend the day running around the city looking like a wet dog. #NotCute I promised myself I’d be prepared for this season. Custom rainboots are a must and Krylon’s gold leaf paint pen makes this project delightfully easy!

Glitter N Glue DIY Curtain Maxi Dress We’re days away from the Oscars so it’s time we find something to wear! Last year I wrapped two yards around my body to attend the US Weekly Magazine Oscar viewing party. My one shoulder wrap dress (click here to see) was so on trend with the nights other red carpet looks. This year I thought it only right that I channel my inner Vivien Leigh in true ‘Gone With The Wind’ fashion.

Watch as I transform curtains into a fun maxi dress.

See How We Sew

If you have ever wanted to make a pieced quilt block in a different size than those that you are able to find in books or magazines, I think you will find this easy, step-by-step tutorial helpful. I suspect that there are still some of you out there who are not using computer software to design quilts. I’m a traditionalist who still enjoys designing with paper and pencil–the process is simple and can certainly open doors to many design possibilities.

Since I will be teaching drafting in my Craftsy class in March, I wanted to expand on the lesson here and share another block.

Here are the tools you will need:

  • 8- squares-to-the inch graph paper
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Drafting ruler (thinner than the rulers we use for cutting fabric)
  • Optional, depending on design: compass, protractor, Flex-Curve, fine-line permanent pens in a variety of colors

To begin, you will need to select a pieced quilt block…
