{air your laundry} friday textile party

Happy Thursday almost Friday.

I’ve spent much of the day (and much of yesterday),
de-hoarding and reorganizing my office.

I happily took a little break to surf and comment
on all of the pretty links from last week’s party.
(Well, all but one because the page was taking forever to load.)

I have a bunch of tutorial features so I’m going to keep it short.


Kimberly at Serendipity is awesome.
If you haven’t flipped through her projects yet, you must.
Last week, she linked up and entire patio makeover that only cost her $3
using some garage sale fabric shower curtain finds.
I do believe we have a new thrift record.

I couldn’t agree more with Lisa Roy.
A French seam sounds fancy and intimidating but it’s actually quite simple
and she shares a great tutorial to show you how to do it!

Mary at Sea Quilts has been sharing an awesome series of tutorials
that show you how to make this pretty sea-inspired quilt.
This link will take you to a great tutorial on how to hand-sew the binding.
(I believe the rest of the quilt, other than the applique, is machine stitched.)

Jaime at That’s My Letter has an easy tutorial for her zippered pouches,
which I think would make great a great teacher gift.
She makes them in all flavors so be sure to do a search for a pouches while your there.

  I am so impressed with this completely hand drawn
that Stacey at Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! made.
She drew and colored the entire design using fabric markers.

If you like pom-poms then you’ll {love} this pillow
A is for adorable.

I love this little Vintage Tea Towel Tote made by Jill at Sew A Fine Seam.
She simply sewed up the sides of the towel, added some handles, and that was it.
Cute, huh?!

Karen at Restyled Vintage not only does crazy awesome furniture transformations with paint
but she sews too…and her vintage style fabric selections never disappoint.
Smile inducing.

Have a beautiful weekend.
Thanks for linking or looking!

    :) I was so hoping you would post before I headed of to dreamland:) It’s so fun to see which posts you pick to feature! That pillow made with the fabric decorated with fabric markers is too too awesome! I may just have to do something like that and make myself a skirt – something TOTALLY different than anyone else is ever gonna have! And thanks for featuring my bag – it was a totally fun and simple project on a day that I was needing to get a project FINISHED – I have so many on the go but nothing finished.
    Have a blessed holiday weekend!

  2. Thank you Jami for featuring my seersucker pouches, I’m definitely making these for teacher gifts too (just had my oldest confirm her teacher’s middle initial today!). So fresh, summery and fun – hopefully they’ll love them as much as we do. And sadly no laundry this week, only of the wooden pine variety.

    Hi Jami,
    Thank you again for featuring my patio makeover. I’m humbled to be included in this group of creative and talented seamstresses. Not sure that I’ll get “laundry” complete for this week but if not, you’ll see me next week. Have a wonderful weekend! xo, Kimberly

  4. Stacey says:

    Oh my, what a surprise. Thank you so much for featuring my knock off pillow. It was so fun to make!

  5. Hey friend!

    I was stopping over to tell you how much I adore your Facebook page and I’m here for the party:). Love all your features….


    I love it over here :)

    Hi there sweet Jami!
    I just stopped by to wish you a wonderful weekend and to take a peak at your last weeks features…always a treat when I find the time!
    Take care my friend!
    hugs from here

  7. Oh Jami … thank you SO much for featuring my binding tutorials. And you are absolutely correct about the hand sewing/machine sewing. Very astute!

    I absolutely love being linked with you every Friday. Thanks for all your hard work.


  8. Jill Elaine says:

    Is is just me or did this weeks links disappear??

  9. Ok, I did a silly thing?! I linked up the same thing that I linked up last week! I am not trying to break the rules or keep relinking the same project! I am the kind that likes to link the project once and move on. Sorry! You are welcome to take it off!!! I will try to pay more attention. That’s what you get when you work on your blog by the side of the pool while your kids are swimming! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

  10. You are so sweet to include my french seamed pillows! Thank you! What a wonderful roundup of pillows (my weakness!). I’m in awe of the hand drawn Crate & Barrel knockoff! :)

  11. Thank you thank you thank you for featuring the Pom Pillow! It’s my favorite ever and I had a hard time handing it over to my “A” niece …



  12. Oh Jami that is so lovely that you featured my cushions..I actually just popped onto your blog to catch up on your last couple of posts, was reading away and looking at the lovely pictures, then saw mine, wow what a surprise, you have made my night :)

    xx Karen
