Saying “I love you!” doesn’t have to cost a bundle this Valentine’s Day. Impress your guests with this adorable little tea towel.

When Anthropologie sold out of a “swoon-worthy” butterfly dishtowel, Katie from Henry Happened found a way to recreate the look. From the water-color butterflies to the stitching detail to the pom-pom trim, Katie did not leave out a detail. Oh, and she did it all without sewing a thing! This towel is a lovely decorative piece for the kitchen and, like Katie says, “would make luxe gifts to have on hand for the holiday season!”
With the Fourth of July just days away, I wanted to share a couple of projects that Debbie at Mountain Breaths created in honor of the occasion. Debbie replicated a patriotic pillow she saw in Pottery Barn’s catalog using fabric she actually picked up at Wal-mart years ago. What’s cool about Debbie’s pillow cover is that it requires absolutely no sewing. You’ll have to head over to Debbie’s site to read how she did it!

Ashlee’s no-sew technique involves inserting the tulle into the basket weave and then creating loops all the around the top. Talk about simple! I know my daughter would go crazy for all the froufrou tulle!
Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage is loving herself some pom poms right now. So when she saw the adorable Crinkle Puff Quilts at PB Teen, Kelly had to have one for her daughter’s room and knew she could easily fashion one herself. Kelly got to work making her own pom poms out of yarn and then attached them to a white quilt she already had. Kelly says, “This project is so easy and no-sew! I’m so happy with how it turned out.”
Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented had been on the lookout for a bed skirt without ruffles AND a ridiculously expensive price tag. She loved the look of a simple pleated style and decided to get creative and make her own with a fitted twin sheet. Mary Anne’s bed skirt not only looks great, but it requires minimal sewing and doesn’t shift!
