Tatertots and Jello

Oh My Stars! Apparently I’m not the only one in love with burlap. Apparently I AM the only one who hasn’t sewn anything with it………BECAUSE I DON”T SEW! But if I did, I would make this……..even if I don’t have a round table…..but I do have a chair with this exact fabric!!! I’m cool, I’m cool, I’m cool. another angle

Back to the Burlap….I love burlap! JenJen has many many projects she’s completed using burlap. And guess what? whole tablecloth She has lots of tutorials! TUTORIALS!!! Oh happy day! Lickity split, you’ll have yourself a brand new table cloth! If you sew of course.making the tablecloth

Tatertots and Jello is one of the cutest names for a blog. She is CRAZY for burlap and that’s why I’m crazy for her.

Let’s see………she made burlap flowers for a burlap memo board……magnet board actually….yes….there is a tutorial.large flower embellishment

And these adorable really really cute pillows……..she has them on her new kitchen nook. I wonder how she did the graphics?

She claims these are no sew pillows…..I don’t believe it….but I’ll go back and read through her tutorial again.

Yes…….she has a tutorial…….burlap tassels 006Clever clever clever. Yes…..there’s a quick kitchen update on her blog. Now I want new knobs…….my husband is thinking this blogging bit is giving me way to many ideas. black and white tasselpumpkin tassel While we’re talkin knobs……..holy mother of all that’s good……..would you look at this door knob? I MUST have one of those. MUST!kitchen redo 015 Oh look……more burlap. I told you….she is crazy for burlap. This was a quick and fairly easy tutorial. frames on the wall
