College Advice

ONE - Don't study too hard.  You wouldn't want to miss out on some fun because you were in the library.




TWO - Ice cream is its own food group.  Eat lots of it.  Preferably with friends instead of studying at the library.


THREE - I'm all out of advice at this wee hour of the morning.  Sorry.


The pillows are finished and ready to adorn a college dorm twin bed. 

I opted for rick rack instead of a fabric flower.  In the end, it all came down to time, and adding rick rack was like 1000 times faster than hand sewing 3 fabric flowers.  While the rick rack was a time saver, I have to say I really like it.  I'd be happy to have one of these decorating my dorm room.

I'm going to be out of town again for a couple of days.  The Italian's parents has reserved some rustic cabins in the mountains for us.  Wish me luck roughing it with my little ones.

When I return I promise to make the Jump Rope Dress (!!), and I also have an idea brewing in my brain for a new window treatment for my sewing space.  Stay tuned!

The ric rac was the perfect, not too much, touch. Good job figuring it out!

I still don't have my sewing machine back. Sigh. Even your dorm room pillow sewing makes me jealous.

The ric rack is perfect. That was what I was thinking you should use... but couldn't remember what it was called. I'm sure the girls will love the pillows!

Have fun roughing it :)
