Weekend Projects

Wow, what a weekend! I got quite a few projects done or close to being done and thought I’d share them with you…

The first thing on my to do list was to make a backdrop for my brother for his photography business (shout out to BK Photography… I fell in love with this fabric and can’t wait to see the photos he uses it in!

Next item up was a shower curtain for my mom. We had found this fabric together one day and both fell in love! (This is actually the same fabric used for my brother’s backdrop-just a different color. We found his fabric the same day.) I still need to finish the top and make all the holes for the shower rings, but it’s so close to being done!

I decided I needed to complete some of my projects on my pinterest boards, so here is one that I did quickly. This business card holder was really easy and fast!

I jazzed mine up a little by adding a rosette and a hair tie to keep it closed (or it was fixing my problem of using interfacing that was too stiff).

I also whipped up a couple of onesies for some friends. Here are the bow tie ones that I did. I also made a cute cupcake one.

One last little project was finally finishing changing the picture above my console table to a Christmas theme. It had been sitting blank for some time and I’m so happy to finally have it done!

It felt so good to check these things off of my list! Now to tackle present wrapping…



  1. All you projects are so cute! To bad we don't live closer, I would love a craft day!

  2. loveeee the backdrop idea... how did u make it/mount it? how much did it cost u?

  3. Thanks Julie! I found the fabric at Hancock Fabrics. It was originally 17.99 a yard but I waited to buy it until it was 40% off. It took 5 yards total-I cut the 5 yards in half and sewed them together to make the backdrop long enough to fit a large family and tall enough to fit a 7' person. I sewed the top like a curtain, so it can slide onto a backdrop stand that my brother (the photographer) has. He said it works great and his clients love the backdrop.

  4. Julie- if you are interested I could make a custom backdrop for you. If you are interested I could e-mail you with pricing information.

  5. that would be great, ty
