I pulled all my reds, white, and blues out to stack, sort and put together for pictures and for decorating in the farmhouse...my house. And before you know it July 4th had come and gone. But I love all of the Americana, all the red, white and blue decor.
And I made a few little things. Little houses, marble cake (polymer clay), napkins, and strawberries.
Another simple thing to do is make little star quilts. It takes a fabric for the star and a fabric for the base, or the front that the star adheres to (I use heatnbond)
Ribbonwoodcottage has several patterns for Americana style decor, diy miniature making, star quilts in small sizes 7" x 7" and so much more. And my patterns are simple. I love to inspire people with basic sewing or making skills to make and sew things. I remember getting so frustrated in 4th grade when I was learning to sew...with that thought in mind, I deliberately make my patterns easy so that people can ENJOY making what they are making!
