"Re-Dressing" the Ordinary

I've been practicing using my Brother Sewing Machine's quilting foot to do some free motion stitching. I couldn't wait to recover a plain spiral notebook for the new school year. It's perfect for lesson plans. I think I'll enjoy seeing this on my desk each day!

I did a photo "transfer" (of me as a little girl) on to muslin the easy way. I lightly glued thin muslin on to heavy cardstock with a glue stick. I then fed it directly into the printer. Afterwards, I gently took the muslin off of the cardstock. It works every time!

Here are some dressed up versions of food cans! I'll use them for pens, pencils, etc. on my desk
