After my last post on the discovery of five kittens in our backyard tree, I thought I'd stay with the kitty theme with an embellished, apple green apron project fit for any fan of felines.
If you've never tried stencilling an image onto fabric before you'll love seeing how easy it is. But first...
KITTEN UPDATE: The mama cat moved her entire litter to a hidden location shortly after I snapped all those photos of the kittens. Also, the recent attention focused on the hollow portion of the tree highlighted just how rotten the Chestnut Oak really was. We called in tree experts who warned that the tree could be toppled by a strong wind at any time. Not good, considering the angle would have brought it down through the center of our house. We had the tree removed three days later.
I may have mentioned before that I am a sucker for creative storage solutions. I really love "re-purposing" too. It's great to be able to take an ordinary item that's meant for one purpose and use it for something else entirely. I'm constantly trying to find new ways to use old items to stash my various crafting supplies.
Case in point? This metal bucket used to hold an old floral arrangement. Now it's a fun and colorful, fabric-covered storage solution. This is a really easy project that you may enjoy trying for yourself.
