{Air Your Laundry Friday} Link Party #13

Hi, pumpkin pies.
(See? Switched it up a bit this time.)
I spent my free time today making a few more clay tag designs
and just finished visiting all of the pretty links
from last week’s party.

I can check today off as a lovely day.

As always,
thank you for linking up your projects
or just coming by for a look.

Which reminds me.

I host a textile party and haven’t created a textile project in a little while.

No worries. 
My next two posts use some.

My freckled favorites from last week…

I adore simple and sweet
 and these burlap flowers in bottles
are just that, aren’t they?

I’m sure most of us have a stash of rather
not-really-my-thing vases that flower arrangements come in.

very simply made a similar vase fabulous.

My favorite projects are the ones that bring real happiness
to the one who made it.
My Life as Prose is so proud of her pretty, little 
living room washer & dryer disguise.
I think it’s an adorable solution.

Not only is this sentimental clipboard 
absolutely vintage chic,
 but that’s her little girl’s wedding dress sketch. 
You have to read the post. So darn sweet.

The simplest details mean so much.
made this tag and notebook cover quite easily
and I think they’d make adorable gifts.
If you don’t sew, you could easy substitute some hot glue. 
 How cute would these notebooks be to hand out to the girls
when they come over for coffee?

Sometimes things start out with textiles

and end up with out them (if you don’t count the burlap ribbon)
Love this creative solution to an old lampshade,
made by Erin at Like Grandma’s.

This project by Amanda at House Revivals

has blog land swooning.

Mel’s Cabin turned a $1.00 coffee sack (the size of Texas)
into several pretty things.
Thank you, everyone!


1. Pleeeease link up TEXTILE projects and inspiration only.
    (As long at is uses a textile in some way, it’s linkable.)

            1: cloth; especially a woven or knit cloth                           
            2: a fiber, filament, or yarn used in making cloth

2. Please be courteous & add my button (in the sidebar) or text link to your post. {thank you}

3. Please link to your actual post, not your blog in general.

4. Please be sweet and visit at least a couple other links.

5. I’d love it if you followed me too, but it’s optional.   
Can’t wait to see what you link up this week!

Due to “scraper” websites that earn revenue by scraping feeds (like an automatic copy & paste) and stealing the creative content of others, I can no longer provide FULL blog posts via email subscriptions. I apologize that you now see a partial post and have to click over to my blog for the rest. I try to create lovely and original content so I appreciate your understanding. If you don’t, I am sorry to see you leave and thank you for being a part of my journey while you were subscribed. {Jami}

  2. Mariette says:

    My Life as Prose’s link is not working; it connects to blogger.com instead. Would have loved to visit…

    Have a nice weekend!


  3. Hi Jami! I had a little angst about whether I should link, or not, but decided that the “concept” of bedding and draperies (beach bedroom reno) counted as textiles? Maybe?

    And exposed wire (actually, any wire) is a filament :)

  4. Allison says:

    All such great projects and so wonderfully creative. Every day I am inspired by all of the amazing talent out there! It’ll be fun to see your clay tags you’re working on, Jami. Happy Friday to you!

  5. Hi Jami!

    All of these projects are just fantastic! Lots of talent out there in Blogland and I love to come here and see it! Yay to all the girls!


  6. Traci says:

    I always love to come and look around at your party! It is so much fun and I love getting such great ideas! Thanks for hosting.

  7. Hi Jami,
    I linked up my revamped kitchen window treatment this week. I’ve been having a hard time getting your air your laundry button to work on my post, I grab the html code from underneath it and it keeps putting your regular blog button in the post instead! Not sure what I’m doing wrong..so sorry I got the wrong button, but I did link it back to the party.
    Have a great day,

  17. Hi. I’ve been wanting to link to one of your parties, but have been working on things other than sewing. Hope this qualifies as a textile :).
    I did use fabric ribbons, a little burlap and some crepe paper.
    Thanks for the party.
    Have a great new week!
    ~ Julie
