DIY Tutorial // Hand Sewn Reading Nook Cushion

nookafter
This project was so easy, even if you aren’t very skilled at sewing! The longest part of this was sewing by hand. If you have a sewing machine, this will be even quicker.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-fabric
-poly foam
-needle
-thread
-scissors

I got all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby! I scored some great fabric from their clearance section for $5, and the poly foam was on sale, too! I used my 40% off coupon on the sewing kit, but sometimes you can find those on sale for 50% off if you don’t already have one.

cushion steps

1. Measure and cut your fabric so you have an extra half inch on each side. For the size of this poly foam, you’ll need two pieces of fabric measuring 26″ x 26″.

2. Make sure that both pieces of fabric are facing inwards towards each other, so that you are looking at the back side of the pattern.

3. Sew 3 of the 4 sides together half of an inch in from the edge.

4. Turn the fabric right side out and place the foam in the fabric.

aaaaa

5. Stitch the last side up. Honestly, I wasn’t worried about how the last side looks because that’s the one going against the edge of the wall. Nobody will ever see that one.

6. Find the perfect spot for your cushion and enjoy!

Enjoy!!

Moving is stressful!

moving

Man, oh, man! I forgot how stressful moving is! I haven’t accumulated a lot of stuff in the last several years, but it’s still stressing me out trying not to leave anything behind. I’ll have driven back and forth between Detroit and Cleveland three times in an 8 day span. I start my new job in Ohio today, but I’ll be headed back to Michigan early Saturday morning for clients.

Any tips for relieving the stress of the back and forth life?

Overwhelmed

Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed? This last week and a half has been a blur. I feel overworked at my second job, and I’m functioning on very little sleep. It’s just one of those weeks where I’m just taking it all in and enjoying the little quiet time I have. I have lots of fun projects that I can’t wait to work on and share, but tonight, I’m just going to rest.

Until tomorrow, beauties!

My happy planner is literally like my best friend these days. I’m old fashioned, and I like to have everything written down. I get satisfaction from having a cute planner with all the decorative stickers.

If I had an excess of money, I’d buy a lot of cute things for my planner. Here are some cute things I’ve had my eyes on on etsy:

Taco Tuesday Stickers!
These cute faith inspired quotes!
Harry Potter Planner Kit because let’s face it- I’m obsessed with Harry Potter!
