Look what I got this week! A pop-up camper. I'm so excited. I've been saving my pennies and searching craigslist for something just right for our family and I finally took the plunge. It's not new - 15 years old, actually. But the previous owners took good care of it and I think (hope) it will last for another 10 years in our family.
And now I've got a delightful makeover project ahead of me, it makes me giddy just thinking about it. I mean, look at those vomit-colored curtains and mattresses with no quilts.
Those couch cushions are simply screaming 'recover me!'
In fact, I started taking the curtains down so I could take them in the house and measure them when my husband reminded me that I have a book deadline. It's looming over me like an elephant in the back seat of the car.
So I can plan, pick out fabrics, and pore over the Pop-up Princess' blog to my heart's content, but I can't actually get started until my newest book is turned in to the publisher. Let me tell you, that is totally the incentive I needed to kick my butt into gear. Watch for my pop-up makover 'after' pictures coming in a few months!
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
