I totally heart the tablecloth which i bought from Christiana, owner of Etsy shop, Ruffled Linens. She is a really wonderful, talented seamtress and she's really nice too. The combination of linen and ruffles gives such a dreamy, romantic look and i immediately fell in love with it when i first saw it. But i needed an extra tablecloth, especially with 2 toddlers around. This time i dont have linen and neither do i have enough fabric to make ruffles, so i looked into the idea of the next two things that i love-swags and ribbons. Might be pretty, sweet and vintage-looking right? There was only one way to find out-DO IT! ;)
I sewed the tablecloth on one of the sundays, but i put off sewing ribbons to the corners till today. Here's introducing 'Emilie' :)- the finished tablecloth.
My husband thinks itsway too girly and 'trying too hard to be sweet' LOL.... ok fine he's a guy guy after all. Anyway to each, its own. I think its pretty enough for a first try and i hope there will be more to come, im already imagining burlap and lace (oooh....). Oh by the way, see that woven tag? i got it from Its Mine Labels. Im such a dreamer i know, lol... i haven even sewed alot and i got myself my own label?? Well, it makes me happy, that's all that matters- quote from my elder sis :). I was inspired by Martha Stewart's community of 'Dreamers Into Doers', a group of talented and creative women who turns their dreams into careers they love. Im not exactly dreaming, im actually just doing something i like for now, but nothing wrong with being inspired right? ;)
