Bright and cheery tablecloths and runners make a wonderful decoration for any baby shower. How can they not be when they're filled with bright pink and bright blue baby girl and baby boy colors?

Any of the fabrics in my LWOriginals “It’s Raining Baby Showers” fabric collections at http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/lworiginals can be used to make tablecloths and runners.


For the tablecloth pictured above we used our It’s A Girl! It’s A Boy! 4 Designs Squares fabric at http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/889314 .


For the runner pictured above we used our Baby Nicky Girl and Boy and It’s A Girl! It’s A Boy! Squares fabric at http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/888811 .

The amount of fabric you will need will depend upon whether you are making tablecloths or runners, how much you want the tablecloths to overhang the table, how big the tables are, and how many tables you are going to cover. Measure accordingly then by the number of yards of fabric that you will need.

Each of our tables and runners have lace around the edges so you should buy enough lace trim to go around all the edges of all the tablecloths and runners you are making and provide a 1 1/2” overlap on the ends.

My Linda's How-Do-I Series? How To Make Our Baby Nicky and It's A Boy! It's A Girl! Centerpiece Dolls Cut and Sew Favor Ornaments E-Book is a 4-page e-book that shows you how to make my tablecloth and runner. They are really easy to make. You're going to love decorating your baby shower with them. Plus, they can be used afterwards by the mother-to-be as doilies for babies bureaus, etc.

Have fun making your tablecloths and runners.

How To Make A Painted and Stenciled Terracotta Pot Decoration FreeTutorial & E-Book By Linda Walsh

Since I had just finished my Linda's Blog post on the painted and stenciled terracotta pots I had made I thought you might enjoy a step-by-step "How-to" on how to make one of your own. If you'd like to read my post entitled "Here's An Idea - TerraCotta Painted and Stenciled Pots" please CLICK HERE.

My instructions on how to make painted and stenciled terracotta pots of your own are shown below.

How To Make A Painted and Stenciled Terracotta Pot Decoration



Supplies Needed

4"-5" Round Terracotta Pot (with or without a tray)
Patio Paint - 1 Bottle
Varnish - 1 Small Can
Provo Craft First Impressions Rub-On Stencils - 1 Each For The Border and Picture
Popsicle Sticks
Brush - 1
Potpourri - 1 Pkg

Instructions

1. Wipe the terracotta pot with a moist paper towel and then let dry.

2. Brush paint the terracotta pot with the Patio Paint inside and out and let dry. Do the same with the terracotta tray if you are using one.

3. Apply a second coat of the Patio Paint to the inside and outside of the terracotta pot and let dry.  Do the same with the terracotta tray if you are using one.

4.  Select the stencil you are going to use for the border at the top of the terracotta pot.  Cut enough of the stencil border to cover the top of the terracotta pot.

5.  Using the popsicle stick gently rub the stencil on to the top of the terracotta pot.

6.  Select the stencil you are going to use for the picture in the center of the pot.    Using the popsicle stick gently rub the stencil onto the center of the pot.

7.  When you are happy with the design and the stencils are adhered to the pot gently brush the entire pot with the varnish.  Do the same with the terracotta tray if you are using one.

8.  When the terracotta pot is completely dry add seasonal potpourri.

9.  Congratulations - You're Done! Now make as many of the painted and stenciled terracotta pots as you would like to decorate around your house.

I also created a .PDF "Linda's How-Do-I Series? How To Make A Painted and Stenciled Terracotta Pot Decoration" E-Book for this as well.

Punkin Ornaments Are We! - Free Pumpkin Ornaments E-Pattern by Linda Walsh or Linda Walsh Originals



I decided to try and make some of my seasonal e-patterns FREE.

My problem is that it's so hard for me to decide. Which ones?

I don't know about other designers, but I tend to get very attached to my creations - even the patterns. I suspect other designers do get attached to their creations, too.

It doesn't have to be something that took me forever to create and make. For me it can be something as simple as a pumpkin. Sometimes the simpler - the better!

So, I thought maybe the free e-pattern I would offer would be something just in time for the Fall. And, what could be a better choice for Fall than pumpkins.

LW161 Punkin Ornaments Are We! A Trio Of Ornaments FREE E-Pattern - 2" Pumpkin Ornaments - Pattern Classification - Beginner
Copyright © 2004 - 2014 - All Rights Reserved - Written By Linda Walsh 

Punkin ornaments are a fun group of "crazy guys" to make for the Fall. They are 2" cloth pumpkin ornaments with embroidered faces who just like to hang out just about anywhere. Hang'em up! Stick'em in a bowl of potpourri! Line them up on a shelf or even add them to a fall wreath. I hang some of mine from the door knobs in my kitchen and line others up in a long bowl surrounded by miniature cinnamon pumpkins.

They may be similar in size, but their diversity of color and the position of their embroidered faces make them unique. It's okay to be similar and part of a trio, but they each have there own personality which is reflected in their color and their face. The punkins are happy about that.

For all my pattern creations I usually only make one or at the most two dolls. One is to support the pattern and the other is usually to sell. This was one of the rare times when I did make more than 2.
