Summer project idea


Later today there will be a tutorial for these hanging vases over at the wonderful Sew Mama Sew blog. Kristin had asked me if I had any ideas that would be good for summer weddings and I had been thinking about this idea for awhile so I worked it up and think it would be perfect for summer weddings and parties! The one with the 8 is to celebrate my little one's upcoming eighth birthday and she really has enjoyed it. We hang it from a hook in her room full of flowers and she can look at it from her bed. Typically in all of her youthful energy, flowers get knocked over in her room but this cute vase has the added bonus of being knock over proof! I am going to make a bunch out of vintage sheets to hang around our yard for the summer months. I hope you enjoy this project and send me photos of ones you make!

Very pretty Mo! I saw these over at sew mama sew, and I also noticed it was made by you, how exciting. :)

Those are very cute and clever! They would also fit the bill for "May Day" -- isn't that when it's tradition to leave a posie of flowers on neighbor's doors, or something like that?

Oh, I love these!! I did a similar project for a photo shoot 2 summers ago. Although, I just embroidered a few colored circles onto a wide belt of linen to wrap around a clear vase. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these...you are so talented!

Great blog too...thanks for stopping by mine today:)

Some money can be saved by purchasing name brand Viagra online, as online pharmacies have lower overhead expenses than brick and mortar pharmacies, so they can afford lower retail buy Viagra . However, consumers wanting name brand Buy Viagra Online can expect to pay a premium.
