Taking Turns quilt - I just love the cleanness and graphic design of this quilt and the white sashing. It sort of reminds me of an interesting cobblestone pathway.
Flip Flap bags are so lovely! I have a weakness for handbag patterns, although I'm sort of rubbish at actually getting around to sewing them... But since I'm a cyclist, I prefer message bags and extra pockets are always a bonus. I also just love the buttons - I have some giant buttons that could really work with these. Pattern is also available as a download so no shipping charges!
Me - May 8, is no exception. I like the idea of choosing one day each month when you can just stop and take stock - just for a few minutes - and reflect on yourself and your life. I also love the stripes of washi tape, the black and white photo, the typed vellum, the embellishments - so, pretty much everything.
About Me Right Now. Her choice of The Pier 6x6 papers is awesome (love those bold, bright colours) and the retro 'squares', the frame, the arrows, the wood veneers.
washi tape to cover buttons - brilliant! Wooden buttons have been suggested but flat plastic ones would work well, too. I might try this with some clear plastic ones I have laying around. I love how flexible washi tape is for DIY embellishments and design.
washi tape paper clips. I like doing this with ribbon but haven't tried it with tape - yet!
slice of CAKE to a loved one for his/her birthday?! A very simple DIY involving a sponge, caulking, spray paint and a postcard - awesome! And you can really post it (photo evidence included in the tutorial).
wall-sized quilled map of the world?! It really is a must-see.
What's been inspiring you this week? Cheers!
