It's now official – this Spring was the wettest in 50 years! In true British spirit we embrace the weather， or moan about it， and when the warm days do arrive we rush into our gardens or to the beach to lap up the Summer sunshine. But you don't have to wait for the sun to shine to bring a Maritime theme to your home； there's some fabulous fabrics and soft furnishings you can use to get the look from lazy Summer days to a completely coastal look.
Today's nautical and beach themed rooms are fresh and modernbed pillow covers， with a touch of nostalgia and Vintage reminding us of childhood days spent building sand-castles， beach combing and eating candy floss or ice-cream while strolling along the prom. The look is sophisticated with a touch of whimsy and shouldn't be restricted solely to the bathroom， or sun-rooms； it can be used throughout your home and even transported into the garden to make the most of the lighter evenings and outdoor living.accent pillow case baby
Vintage deckchairs are the ideal informal seating and can be freshened up simply by replacing the fabric. You can stay true to deckchair-style and use stripes or go for something a little more fun， such as sailing boats or beach huts. Mix and match fabric patterns and don't forget to add extra comfort with contrasting cushions.
The tailor's knot is the best and easiest sewing knot that you can make. This technique was taught to me at school in 7th grade, and I have been using it ever since. I'm not a a big fan of hand sewing, but it's an essential thing if you want to make a professional hem with invisible stitches or if you need to close small openings on the linings of a handmade purse. Whenever I do any hand sewing, making this knot is the first step.
This is a “look-alike” scarf for my fem 4th Doctor cosplay and I have made a few alterations to make it look more in character. Additionally, this is a no crochet, no knitting method so it does not have the large woven scarf look of the iconic classic Who character. However! :) It is not as heavy and is made of lighter material, which is a HUGE plus as I frequent conventions during the summer. I have adapted my pattern from doctorwhoscarf.com and converted the rows of yarn into inches so I could measure my fabric. This a great project for people just learning to use a sewing machine since there are no complicated stitches. If you need some help getting started using your sewing machine, check out this very helpful introduction: WikiHow to Use a Sewing Machine Though I would also recommend consulting your sewing machine owner’s manual. If you do not have one, do a web search for “owner’s manual” with the name and model number of your machine.
