Here’s how I made them:

Old tea or spice tins make perfect little storage helpers for your fridge or magnetic message board. I used “Mod Podge” to adhere some pretty fabric scraps and simply hot glued magnets to the back. So cute and handy! Use them for pens, pencils, rubber bands, etc. and finally clean out that messy kitchen drawer!
Tip – Be sure to use strong magnets so the tins don’t slide down the fridge. Also be sure to let the “Mod Podge” dry completely before gluing.
I was looking around on Etsy (as I love to do) and came across the cutest little tank dress at Adelaide’s Boutique. The skirt is in Trade Winds fabric in the Cambay pattern, isn’t it adorable? Click here to check out Adelaide’s Boutique on Etsy.
I am thrilled to report that Vancouver’s finest quilt shop has moved on to Granville Island. What a treat to have Vancouver’s “go to” quilt shop right at my doorstep! Here is a sneak peak at the shop as well as the lovely ladies Maria Roder and Barbara Paxton. The Cloth Shop has been an inspirational and creative sewing boutique in the Vancouver market for over 30 years and has just relocated this spring to the Creekhouse building on Granville Island. For years Maria and Barbara Jean have created art through fabric, selling current fabrics by leading designers, designing their own line of patterns under the name “Bella Moon”, as well as creating stunning quilt kits. Their expertise in colour and creativity has made them renowned for being progressive and forward thinking and a leader in the quilting industry in Canada. They were featured as a Top Ten quilt shop by Better Homes and Gardens in 1999 and again a few years later by the editors as one of their favourite stores in their anniversary edition.

I found the cutest idea on Etsy. They are simple covered boxes that are nice on their own but look how fabulous they look when they are all displayed together! Such a rich colorful feminine look, I love it:)
What an amazing run it’s been and now the Country Fair is coming to an end. How quickly time flies! We hope that you’ve enjoyed reading up on all the Moda Designers. Today, be sure to check out Liz Scott.
