Eating and Napping

December 23, 2015

Eating and Napping

Part of Thanksgiving at Aimee's this year involved a new Foret table runner! Nice work, Aimee. She's kind of a DIY champion in these parts.

Eating and Napping

And then we ate homemade chex mix for days...

Eating and Napping

Yep, we ate them up at the cabin too between naps and catching up on magazines.

It was extra fun to run into our Nethercote wallpaper in the December Better Homes and Gardens! Holiday bonus points.

Let the Sun Shine!

Let the Sun Shine! Let the Sun Shine!

Little friend of H&W, Sabine, got her new Daydream (Sunshine) curtains up, which was reason enough for a dance party!

Seeing Spots

September 11, 2015

Seeing Spots

I (almost) finished my Serengeti curtains! Ever since we decided to make fabric, I've been wanting to make these. So, it's a pretty big deal around here :)

Seeing Spots

Everything's coming up sunny!

Seeing Spots

I love these cheetahs and spots together.

Seeing Spots

And these too. I picked up these kicks in Paris because I may or may not have been missing my curtains ;)

#sewlapalooza

August 31, 2015

#sewlapalooza

We had a big week hanging out at Aimee's cabin, sewing things and swimming in the lake with Winter. It was our first annual #sewlapalooza company retreat, and we'll definitely be doing it again.

#sewlapalooza

I started things off small, with a quilted sleeping mask in Foret (Charcoal)!

#sewlapalooza

I've never quilted before, so all in all this could have turned out much worse.

#sewlapalooza

It's pretty no?

#sewlapalooza

And, we used more of the fabric to recover our friend's chair. One thing for sure is that staple gunning is more satisfying and much easier than sewing. Note to self.

#sewlapalooza

Aimee reupholstered this headboard in the guest room (or my room, as I like to call it). More on this later. But, spoiler alert. It turned out amazing and was really easy! Who knew? We did not.

#sewlapalooza

This is pretty much how I will hygge now all the time. [Our printer made us these T-shirts - so sweet of them!]

#sewlapalooza

Sewing retreat break with Winter!

#sewlapalooza

Winter basically swims herself senseless so we encouraged her to take floaty breaks too. She quickly understood the pleasure of floating in the water without having to exercise. For me, it's the only way to go :)

#sewlapalooza

Our team inflatable swan made a break for it, but we managed to find it on down the lake. I fear I might not be seeing her again due to her propensity to float away (and after seeing how Aimee's boys use it as a slide...).

#sewlapalooza

We also thought it would be funny to dress like twins and not say anything when our friend arrived to see how she'd react. It was. To us, anyway. Sorry, Karin! Already looking forward to Sewlapalooza 2016!

Printing Foret (Coral)

August 24, 2015

Printing Foret (Coral)

I stopped by our fabric printer to pick up some fabric because I am too impatient to wait to make curtains any longer...

Printing Foret (Coral)

They were just finishing up the last color layer of Foret (Coral). It really amazes me to see the hand screen printing process.

Printing Foret (Coral)

And, to see what a difference the charcoal outlines make with this pattern.

Printing Foret (Coral)

2x 90 foot long rows of hyggelig prettiness!

Printing Foret (Coral)

Exciting times at H&W!

Diamante Camoflauge

August 03, 2015

Diamante Camoflauge

Because I'm more or less obsessed with our Diamante pattern, it only made sense to match my lampshades with my wallpaper.

Diamante Camoflauge

To do this, I just traced a pattern of the lampshade onto some paper to create a "pattern." Then I cut about an inch past the edge of the pattern (which would be the fabric to glue over the edge. I glued the fabric on with, wait for it, fabric glue. And, voila!

Diamante Camoflauge

Done. Next up... Diamante curtains? All signs point to yes.

Otomi Matching

August 03, 2015

Otomi Matching

We've been "quality controlling" (aka having fun with...) our fabrics just to make sure they wash well, sew well, wear well, and most importantly, look great!

Otomi Matching

First up, I sewed a simple tote bag with Otomi (Red) and then matched up the interior pocket with a scrap piece of Otomi (Navy). I did actually sew this over the 4th of July weekend, but the thing is that I actually love red and navy together all year round so no harm, no foul with the patriotic timing of this endeavour. I just sort of guesstimated at a pattern by cutting and sewing rectangles together.

Otomi Matching

See how I sort of got it to line up? Mostly. And then after that, I forgot to take more photos.

Otomi Matching

Fast forward to my field trip to the beach to photograph the Otomi (Navy) chairs I made. And by made, I mean I bought some Ikea beach chairs and sewed some fabric over the boring fabric they came with. Too bad the San Francisco weather was mostly uncooperative the one day that I found the time to go to the beach. Luckily, though, I found a friend to come with me, and as it turns out you don't need a lot of sunshine to enjoy drinking champagne in patterned beach chairs with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Otomi Matching

The moral of this fabric matching story ends on three very happy notes in that these chairs turned out super pretty, you can't go wrong with a big, Otomi tote and our fabric collection is off the chain!

Otomi Matching

I can't wait to sew more. In fact, Aimee and I have some big, crafty plans in the works, many of which will be happening at our first annual #sewlapalooza in a couple weeks. More to come!
