Folks come up with such great gift ideas! Here’；s one from Tari Intardonato， a BERNINA Resource Educator from Texas.
I made this “；Flip Flop”； quilt as a store sample for BERNINA Sewing Center of Dallas？a number of years ago. My son Matthew’；s friend Alexis came over to help me make the quilt. We painted her feet and it did take a couple of tries but we were able to put them on the material without too many imperfections.burlap throw pillow covers
I added the hand stitches， buttonspersonalized newborn baby gifts， and ribbons to make the footprints look like flip-flops. The most time-consuming part of making this quilt was waiting for the fabric paint to dry.
This quilt is about five years old. Store samples sometimes take a while to get back to you. Oh， how I wished I would have put the date on it! I asked Alexis over recently and we made a quilt label which I attached to the back. We then wrapped it up and it is now going to be her Mother’；s Day gift.
You can see from this photo how long it’；s been since we made the quilt!
？I hope this inspires WeAllSew readers to try something new. Happy Mother’；s Day! –； Tari
Wouldn’；t this be great for Father’；s Day， too？ I can picture it with big sister’；s footprints， little brother’；s footprints， and Fido and Tabby’；s paw prints. This would be a fun summer？learn-to-sew project!？Jo

We have also included tips, advice and things to consider when you measure for curtains. Measuring for curtains can be confusing if you've never done it before.

Leaving your windows naked and bare means you’re missing out on a big interior design opportunity. Beautiful window treatments provide privacy, filter sunlight, and add warmth while bringing style to your home.

Routines. The word makes some people cringe and some people breathe a sigh of relief. Routine can be an excellent way to establish rules, make sure your littles are eating and sleeping enough, or that they don't have a meltdown in the middle of the grocery store when you have a cart full of groceries while an impossibly long line builds behind you.
