I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

ADDING POM POMS TO A THROW

ADDING POM POMS TO A THROW

My sister found this black and white aztec print fabric at JoAnn's a while ago and used it to make her baby bibs. She showed me a picture and I immediately went to buy some but my JoAnn's didn't carry it, so she bought the rest of it at her local store and sent it to me :) I stewed over what I would do with it, some leggings, a shirt... but then I decided I wanted to be able to see the fabric all the time so I made a throw blanket. It is a jersey knit, so I just folded the black and white fabric over to make a little hem and sewed some black fleece to the other side of it. Then I saw the idea of adding pom poms to it on this blog.

I made some pom poms for my daughters room and share a tutorial here. For these, I just made the pom poms a little bigger and tied a knot in two strings-like in the picture below. Then I tucked the knot in to the corner of the blanket and sewed it in there.
