DIY – Plush Pumpkins

October 14th, 2012 — 8:53pm

Fall is my favorite time of year. There is nothing like curling up in a warm blanket, sipping on something pumpkin flavored, and enjoying fireside tales with friends. This season I compiled a list of hauntingly perfect handmades to decorate my home and celebrate all things autumn. These sweet little Plush Pumpkins sure take the pie when it comes to festive fall DIYs. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Fall Colored Fabric
  • 100% Wool Felt
  • Twine
  • Embroidery Thread
  • Sewing Needles
  • Scissors
  • Cotton Stuffing

 Step 1: Cut a 5 in by 10 in piece of fabric. Fold in half so short sides meet (printed side in). Stitch along short edge with 1/4-inch seam allowance.

Step 2: With doubled thread and running stitches, sew along one end. Pull thread to cinch fabric closed. Stitch to secure.

Step 3: Turn pouch right side out and stuff with batting. With doubled thread and running stitches sew around open end. Pull thread to cinch fabric and stitch to secure.

Step 4: Thread a long needle with twine (I used striped bakers twine). Wrap twine around pumpkin creating 5 sections; pulling through core several times to add ridges.

Step 5: Cut leaf shapes out of your wool felt. To add detail embroider onto leaves with floss.

Step 6: Cut 1in strips of brown felt for stems.

Step 7: Stitch felt leaf and stem onto the top of your pumpkin.

There you have it! A perfect pumpkin project for my favorite fall season! Try mixing and matching fabrics for an adorned mantel or craft up additional sizes (Try an 8in by 16in piece of fabric for medium pumpkins and an 11in by 22in piece of fabric for large pumpkins).

May your spooky season be filled with many cold-weather craft days!

Interiors & Exteriors

August 10th, 2012 — 2:53am

It’s what’s on the inside that counts, well actually the outside is pretty important too. Your home is the core of all your inspirations, daydreams, and cultivated collections. Apart from styling homes, I love to gather inspirations from other home owners, ideas both for future projects and my own nest. Here are some of my favorite Interiors & Exteriors.

Featured on Manner & Lane

August 2nd, 2012 — 6:30pm

I was recently featured on the inspirational website Manner & Lane. The site is home to a collection of expertly curated lifestyle guides for Southern Women and is a daily read of mine. Click here to see my entertainment feature and be sure to sign up for their newsletter which is packed full of must-have knowledge for the everyday southern gal.


A little about what’s behind Manner & Lane

Today’s Southern woman has a strong sense of culture, significance and her own unique perspective. She longs to enjoy a full life, but one with fewer distractions that is defined by meaning and her own identity—to enjoy a less complicated, rich existence, rooted in the place and with the people she loves.

Manner & Lane aims to curate and celebrate this view. From entertaining friends to supporting causes we believe in, discovering a designer that elevates our style and everything in between, we’re on a search for uncommon quality, intriguing culture and enriching stories.

Manner is the way we live. To be Southern is a distinct approach. Our heritage has taught us to cherish what matters most and to carry ourselves with class and strength, grace and hospitality.

Lane is the path we take. We aim to be the online destination that supports you in the journey to further refine who you are—along the way exploring relevant items of culture, cuisine, art, music, style, health, knowledge and more.

In a world overloaded with information, bombarding us with so many expectations of what a woman should be, we know that part of our beauty and passion for life is rooted in our uniqueness, both as individuals and as Southern women. We know we can’t be all things to all women, but we hope to provide a curated guide through the haze and expectations of society. Through our free bi-weekly email publication and website,Manner & Lane strives to produce authentic and distinct editorial content to make the art of living well easily accessible.
