Blog Swapping with Crystal's Craft Spot

HAPPY TUESDAY, everyone!!! So glad you stopped by! Today I am blog swapping with Crystal at Crystal's Craft Spot. She has some super cute stuff to share :) To see my post for today, head on over to her blog and check it out.

Now let's see what Crystal has to share with us on Paisley Passions today. Take it away, Crystal!!!

I'm so excited to be here today. I love Paisley Passions and all the inspiration found here. So thanks for swapping with me.

I am Crystal from Crystal's Craft Spot. Its my little spot to share my current craft projects, tutorials, recipes, and ideas I want to use in the future. I have have a craft challenge every Wednesday and Feature yourself Friday that I would love for you to join. I try to post something new almost everyday and I enjoy a variety of crafts. It is my way to relax and take a break from a busy day. If you have little ones you might also be interested in my preschool blog. We post our fun activities and crafts over there. Also I just opened up my own etsy shop called A.O.kay designs. Its not very full but I'll be adding a lot of fun new things as I go so check back often. Here are a few fun crafts you'll find at my craft spot
While I was trying to come up with a project for today I ran across this pillow and loved it. It had two of my favorite things...monograms and leafs.

Here's what I came up with





I cut out two 16" fabric squares.






I folded my brown fabric in half and cut out half of a leaf to fit the space I wanted.



cut the leaf on the fold so you now have two halves of the leaf. Pin in place and sew.




Cut out 10 different sized leafs to fit inside your large brown leaf. I use one fabric for all of them but different colors would also be really cute. I also cut out an H (for Harris).


Sew everything into place.




Pin right sides together and sew around the edges. Leave an opening at the bottom to flip.


Flip it. Stuff it and sew the opening closed. You now have a Mod Fall Pillow.



Come by Crystal's Craft Spot anytime for more crafts and tutorial. Thanks again for letting me stop by. Its been a lot of fun!

THANKS CRYSTAL, for swapping with me today! Love your ideas!!! That pillow is absolutely DARLING!!! :)

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for Wandering Wednesday Blog Hop and Thursday for another Thrilling Thursday Linky Party :)
