One thing I enjoy when using BERNINA’s many presser feet and accessories is finding non-conventional uses for them. The BERNINA Gathering Foot #16 was designed to create soft gathers for home décor and clothing. However, when the foot is used while sewing a crosshatching pattern on a piece of lightweight fabricburlap throw pillow covers, a delightful texture of puffs develop.

The traditional use of the Gathering Foot #16 is for gathering a ruffle to use as an embellishment; gathering to a flat piece all in one seam; imitation smocking; puffing an insert; or elastic shirring.

The amount of gathering is dictated by the presser foot pressure and the stitch length. To create a puffier texture, lengthen the stitch. Be mindful that a puffier texture will require a larger piece of fabric for the pillow top as more fabric will be drawn into the gathers.

Hello lovely readers! If you have followed my blog for a while, you know that we PAINTED our tile backsplash nearly a year ago. Why, you ask? Well, we did not, errrrrr, “care for it” {that's my very diplomatic way of describing my feelings toward our old backsplash}, but a new tile backsplash was simply not in our budget. Here is what it looked like before. My girls and I disagree on what is pictured below. I insist it's a lion. My 4-year-old twin girls insist it is a dinosaur. I'll let you decide :) Painting it a dark grey absolutely improved the appearance of the back splash, and the paint has held up PERFECTLY. It was a brilliant {if I do say so myself} DIY solution! Except for one problem… We did not have flat, pattern free tiles. The fact is, we can still see those dinosaurs/lions {and other random images and Latin phrases}, which is a big downer. The fact is, we still LONG for a more contemporary look that is still budget friendly. Well, GUESS WHAT?! We have found our solution! Formica? Laminate… YES, Formica? Laminate! Now, before you think I have lost my mind, let me tell you, Formica? Brand has come a long way since you last saw it in your mama's kitchen. Jonathan Adler partnered with Formica? Brand andcreated the The Formica? Laminate Jonathan Adler Collection. WOOOO HOOOOO! It is available at Lowe’s home centers and select kitchen and bath distributors nationwide. The full collection can be viewed and samples are available on the Formica? Brand website. There are three amazing patterns to choose from: Greek Key, Malachite and Lacquered Linen. And don't even get me started on the fresh, fun colors to choose from–green, orange, blue, charcoal andcrème. Aside from the stunning patterns, we are really excited about having a completely sleek and grout-free surface as our backsplash. Talk about contemporary AND easy to clean. Though I love all of the patterns, we are leaning towards the Crème Lacquered Linen pattern. The Lacquered Linen is inspired by mid-century modern furniture. It features a glossy finish for a new spin on a classic texture. I think it will look perfect in our kitchen and will pull from the colors in our BOLD stenciled kitchen floor. Y'all, I am BEYOND excited to have our new backsplash installed. Stay tuned… It will be in place soon and I can't wait to share the after photos with you! What do you think of the pattern I have chosen for our kitchen? What is your favorite pattern? Let me know in the comments below to enter for a chance to win a $100 Lowe's gift card!

My family and I love bags. We are sort of obsessed with them. We also camp and camping for us means being organized. About 3 months ago I decided to start making us bags instead of buying them. It has been a learning process but also quite fun.
