Ruffle Throw

I braved a twin size ruffle throw + two pillow shams [a la Pottery Barn Teen] and survived.

I could probably live the rest of my life and never desire to sew another ruffle again… well, probably not, but not in the near future will it EVER happen. Hah.


PB Teen can’t hold me down. There were a lot of steps and a lot of time needed to complete the project, I would say a good 12 hours were sucked up over three days to finish what I had started.

Ruffle Throw StepsI purchased two flat sheets from Target, one twin size and one queen size. I cut the queen sheet into ~6″ strips, ironed and hemmed all the sides that weren’t going to be ruffled, ruffle the unhemmed side with my handy dandy sewing machine, pinned each ruffle to the twin sheet and sewed and sewed and sewed. Then I did it ALL over with the pillow cases, however, I used the remaining fabric from the queen sheet that were not used on the twin throw, easy peasy!

Before I got about 5 hours into the project I had the thought, “This is SO easy, I could sell these!” I have changed my mind.

Unless you beg and I really love you… maybe I will think about it.

Zaycon Bulk Meat Events

Time for another round in our area by Zaycon Foods, have you tried them out yet? If not, you should definitely call your friends to see if they want to go in with you, you will not be sorry!

I hit them up for 40 pounds whole chicken breasts last year and let me tell you, I was shocked, surprised and SUPER happy with my decision to give them a try. I shared the cost of the chicken with my Mom, so the price tag wasn’t too killer with someone to go in half… I think having 20# of chicken is quite enough for a family of 2.5. The boneless skinless chicken breasts are 100% natural and come from local southern and midwest states; they are cleaned up and placed in several unsealed bags, which once reaching 40# they are placed in one gigantic sealed bag and loaded up in super heavy duty cardboard boxes.

The Zaycon team is so efficient, you don’t even have to get out of you car or truck to pick up your purchases, they walk up with your order, put it where you ask and off you go to seal seal seal.

Friday, September 28 [Orders must be placed by 9/26/12, Chicken SELLS OUT quick]
