Spring is always an exciting time of year as we slowly unravel from the gloom of winter. When we all start suffering from winter cabin fever and can’t wait to clean out the mess with a yearly spring cleaning, spending some time doing some simple spring sewing projects can be a great way to get ready! This is the perfect time of year to update some old pillows that were going to get tossed with the spring cleaning, freshen up your dinner table with new serving napkins, or get ready for those family picnics with a new picnic blanket.
This simple Napkin Folded Pillow Case can be completed in just an evening and will quickly brighten up pillows you’ve gotten tired of looking at. Try making these adorable Spring Napkins to liven up the dinner table tonight, make them in any or all of your favorite colors. They’ll also be a great addition if you’re itching to start getting that old picnic basket ready. If you are, try making a new blanket with this Picnic Blanket Tutorial and add a little floral charm to the basket or anything else in your home with these brightly colored Tattered Flowers for Embellishment. The best part about these projects? They’re all do-able in a weekend or less!
So go ahead and get started! It may not feel like it yet, but Spring is just around the corner so why wait for the flowers to start blooming when you can create some of your very own! Your home will thank you.
