Lazy Sewing For The Home

I rarely sew for my home. Main reason - not my property. I will only go crazy with decorating when we move to our own permanent home, which only God knows when. Right now I'm saving whatever amount of money I have left after buying fabrics (lol) for a furniture and decorating spree once we moved.

Still, it's Eid, and families and friends are going to visit us. Hubby hinted a few times for me to do something with our tables. They are either covered in hideous, old cloth or just plain naked. I relented after he promised not to say anything about our curtains lol.

So the above is just a simple spread of Amy Butler home decor fabric. The lazy sewer here just serged, turned and hemmed the four sides. I used the whole 2 yards in my stash. I wanna keep it simple, let the print shine in its own splendor.

The naked, cheapo coffe table got dressed in another AB Love home decor print. I only have half yard, but wanted it reversible, so I sewed that IKEA fabric you see peeking, right side together, turned it inside out, top stitched all around and wallah! New table runner-ish kind a thing in my living room :)

The glass jars housed 6 different types of biskut raya (festive cookies). Nope, if you come visit that is NOT all that will be served, I promise :P

Speaking of IKEA, our recent trip got one little girl very, very happy :D
