{air your laundry Friday} #48 with FEATURES

I’m back in business here.
FedEx delivered my macbook today and it’s as good as new.
I have so many features from last week’s party.
I was able to visit every. single. textile link. and comment.
(That doesn’t happen often lately so I was happy to see what you all were up to
and let you know that I was there!)

Hang on.
Let me adjust my kitten scarf.
(Jack likes to sit on the back of my neck.)
I’ll have to take and share another picture of the little fat ball!
(No offense to anyone. I’m not exactly Kate Moss over here.)
He has packed on some serious LB’s since we got him 
and I’m thinkin’ he’s going to be one huge dude when he grows up.
Oh, gosh.
Cat lady in training.
Let’s talk textiles.
I love the sweet simplicity of this burlap cone made by My at Space 46.
I like the way the rounded edges come together with a little bow.
Never heard of this EASY faux chenille technique 
until my friend, Christ at Pickup Some Creativity linked her blanket up.
Cool texture.
Sarah at Adventures of our Fami-Ly shared another easy tutorial for making these
pretty pom-poms.
Sandi at Making it Homey stenciled her seat cushions
and is currently hosting a giveaway for $50 credit to Cutting Edge Stencils (ends Monday).
I’ve considered this very same Casablanca stencil for my office walls
as I have an itch to create a bit more vintage modern space.
Ordinarily, I wouldn’t consider myself much of a pattern person,
but I I die over this stencil every time I see it 
and think pale gray on white would be so pretty.
(I know it’s technically a Morrocan pattern.)
I used Cutting Edge Stencil’s Anna Damask in my hallway makeover
so if you’re after that stencil, hurry and enter Sandi’s giveaway!
Speaking of the Anna Damask stencil,
Becca at From Gardners 2 Bergers shared her tutorial for stenciled curtains.
Love this little Polka-Dot Pouch Tutorial by Jaime at That’s My Letter.

Jamie at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

shared her 2011 Top Sewing Projects and Tutorials.
This rainbow dress is a favorite.

Lastly, Eure Julia at Tres Julie shared the breathtaking
dress, cardi, and shoes that she made.
I adore the cuts, texture, and ruffles and ruffles and ruffles.

That ought to hold you over for a while.
Thank you so much for linking and looking.
Textile Party Rules
1. Please link up TEXTILE projects and inspiration only.
(As long at is uses a fabric in some way, it’s linkable.)

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

or my button (sidebar).
Have a lovely weekend.

    Thank you dear friend for featuring the chenille blanket. I love the texture, too. The best thing about these types of blankets is they have a heft to them that is so comfy. I loved the two my mom made for my babies. :)
