Freaky Friday: Blue Cricket Design

Hi there! I’m Becca from Blue Cricket Design.
I’m so excited to be here hanging out! I have my fingers crossed that some of Jessica’s mo-jo rubs off on my while I’m here for my visit! I just love all of her amazing projects!

If I could sit behind my sewing machine all day I would. I’m rooted in self taught sewing and love creating my own patterns, refashioning and inventing helpful solutions! I’m also OBSESSED with fabric! Seriously folks! I dream about it at night. It’s what I spend most of my money on! I love anything that has to do with it! Here are a few past favorite projects that all involve my little obsession I think you might enjoy! Click on the photos to be taken to their original post!

Come check out an easy tutorial on how to make these Rolled Fabric strip Rosettes! Perfect for embellishing necklaces or making headbands and pins! (click on picture to see the tutorial).

Wall art is easy and affordable when you use beautiful bold prints and a little strength with a staple gun! And if you like furniture refinishing be sure to check out my how to post HERE!!! I’m also addicted to refinishing and my Red Piano is a great example that no project it ever too big!

This was one of my favorites! Scrap Fabric Bracelets made from my kids Happy Meal toys!

And I had to create a beautiful place to house all my fabric right! I HEART my new hutch that happily displays my collection of fabric!

And lastly I created this Coupon Caddy to hold my coupon holder and redeamable coupons! I was so frustrated with my shopping trips! My baby would eat my coupons or I’d hold the coupons I planned on using in my pocket only to forget to use them at check out! SOLUTION: Coupon Caddy holder!

And here I am (yes as a blond!) meeting my fabric idol Heather Bailey!
It was magical!

I share all of my ideas over on Blue Cricket Design and have just announced that I’m on the hunt looking for YOUR ideas! Blue Cricket Design is turning into a Feature Blog! I’ll be featuring the hottest projects, newest designers and biggest trends! I’m opening up my blog to all of you! You can find out how you can submit your work HERE!

Thanks Jessica! Keep up the awesome work!

    Fun Freaky Friday switcheroo.
    I wanted to see the rosette tutorial, but some of links aren’t there. Do you know the link to that? I searched BCD and can’t seem to find it.
    Thanks Jess :)
