Showing Off - Reader Feature

Hey Sugar Bee Readers!  It’s Melanie from the Crafty Cupboard, where I quilt for friends, sew for my three adorable girls, sometimes update my shop, and craft for my home.  I LOVE Mandy’s link-up party, and I love looking at the top favorites even more.  I’m so glad I can take a turn at it, even though it was pretty tricky narrowing down my top picks. 

I am more of a modern gal, so you had better believe I got excited about these color blocked curtains by Creatively Living!  What a great idea!

When sewing isn’t an option to get those perfect curtains, try stenciling, like this awesome pair from The Cards We Drew

Speaking of geometrics, how about this for a great, eye-catching way to use up scrap boards, by Girl Loves Glam?

As a sewer, quilter, and former student of design, I’m loving this chevron pillow.  Can you believe those chevrons are made from stitches?  Bev @ Flamingo Toes is my hero now.

So, having three girls means there are a lot of skirts around.  And rainbow everything.  So, put it all together, and Sew Easy Being Green has the perfect tutorial for any chevron-rainbow-twirly loving girl.

I just finished my baby’s nursery (or, at least I stopped working on it…) so I was excited to see what Made it on Monday did for her baby girl’s room!  Check it out- I love, LOVE the little bird houses!

I’m trying to convince my girls to be Fancy Nancy for Halloween (right now they are bent on Strawberry Shortcake) because I adore that little French-loving girl, and lets face it- her clothes would be AWESOME to DIY.  Let’s all do a collective “aaawwwww!!” at this Fancy Nancy Birthday party, at VixenMade.  I’m totally offended I wasn’t invited. ;)

I live in Mesa, Arizona, where Fall doesn’t really happen.  Like, at all.  But I still am lovin’ this Fall printable from How to Nest for Less! And it is Free Mc-Free! 
Isn’t this glasses case fun?  You should see the Before and After together!  Ann-Kay, that was a bright idea!
These labels by All This For Them are something I ought to do.  My girls are always wearing their handmade clothes backwards, or in the wrong size.  If I made some clothing tags, that would make getting dressed- in the right clothes, the right way- a whole lot easier.

I’m amazed at the creative minds out there, and so grateful everyone shares their ideas with us!  Feel free to stop by my blog for ideas and inspiration, like my Reversible Baby Wrap Dress, a festive Spider Web Runner, or a Twirly T-Shirt Dress!
