When I was invited to try out Jo-Ann’s new line of HGTV’s HOME fabric line, I was pumped. The fabric is gorgeous and colorful. And girly! It was the perfect excuse to do some crafty creating for myself. I’m always working on things for our home or my hubby or the boys or gifts for other people. I rarely get to do any projects that are actually for ME. I was totally excited.
When I got the fabric kit, I was totally in love with the Urban Blossom fabric. Smitten. The coordinating fabric, Checkered Past Berry, was a little less my taste, but still very colorful and fun. There was also a suggested project printed off and stuck in the magazine. I was totally in love with the Round Ottoman project, but it called for three pieces of 4″ thick foam and I’d just priced that foam for a different project I’d been working on. I knew that wasn’t an expense I wanted to take on right now. So, I started searching for ideas. I kept finding all kinds of things I wanted to make… The best part was that a lot of my projects used small amounts of fabric. Guess what that means?! Lots of projects! Eeep. So excited! In this case, I think quantity is just as important as quality. Thus, begins the “Top Three Projects I created with this Awesome Fabric!”
The first project I took on: a padded camera strap cover! I’d been wanting a strap cover for a while. But, from numerous day trips to different zoos, an aquarium or two, a corn maze and a few beach outings, I knew it needed to be padded. I finally found some great directions and tackled the project during nap time one day.
How awesome is that fabric?! Well, lucky for you, I’ve got a coupon for you! 10% OFF! And if you order between April 14 and May 4, 2013 all HGTV Home fabric will be 50% off! SCORE!
