It's freezing here. No, really... FREEZING. I currently have one frozen pipe in the upstairs bathroom that I'm dealing with and I am kicking myself for not replacing the living room windows before winter. But it's alright. I SURVIVED THE POLAR VORTEX OF 2014, I CAN SURVIVE THIS.
Since it's so cold out, I decided to embrace it with some decor.
First, I found a ton of felt that I bought for a project that I never did. I don't actually do that often, but I have found stashed materials before, so I needed to do something with it.
There's like two yards of it. This project didn't even make a dent.
I cut out a runner, about 12" x 36" and then I laid it out on my grubby ottoman to take this picture:
My children are why I can't have nice things.
From here, I put on a crocheted border. I found this on Pinterest that gave great instructions on how to do it.
After that, I stitched up some snowflakes onto the middle...
This one is my favorite. I named him Chester.
And, viola... I had a runner. I had accomplished something. I AM QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE.
Ahem. I seem to lose my mind a bit more since I gave birth to Lily. Three children is apparently my insanity quotient.
This project took a few days to put together, but I do just love it. Of course, it's so cold that I would probably love anything that made my lap warm as I worked on it. This laptop is my best friend right now.
I'll try to be back next week to show you what else I made with the never-ending pile of felt... hint, it has more snowflakes on it. I can't escape them.
I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!
