I’m pretty sorry at the sewing machine, and thought I should practice some basic stitches in preparation for an upcoming project (clue: new button in my sidebar). So after salivating over the floral-patterned wallpaper here, I decided to put some new floral fabric to use and sew some garland. Garland is so played out, right?
Ryan teased me in a Sarah Palin voice by saying my finished product looks ‘country’ and that I’ve gone ‘country.’ But I reminded him that he was the one born in Texas and raised in Fresno, so he will always be more country than me.
And I’ve been thinking lately how poverty-chic is SO in right now. Twine, kraft, felt, hand-drawn, everything hand-made or thrifted… In five years, how much will our design aesthetics change, and are we going to look back and wonder why the heck did we wrap everything in paper akin to brown paper bags?
