You made it: Spring Edition

Last night while getting a blog post ready I decided to browse the You Made It Flickr group just for a moment. It had been a while since I did that. And well, I quickly scrapped the original blog post I was working on decided to share your creations instead! Some of your photos really jumped out at me. And yea, there are a lot of stripes in here. Can you blame me? “I love stripes!”–me beaming in the IKEA fabric section as I cut a few yards.

So here’s what you’ve been up to, based on ideas or tutorials seen here on MADE.

Here come the stripes…..or….stripes turned into chevrons! A red and white chevron pillow by slfarns (based on the “from stripes to chevron” tutorial)

How about some Rollie Pollies?
