Saturday, I mentioned that I'd be making a table topper for our side table and I would document each part of the process for you. I didn't get too far today, but settled on a healthy stack of fabrics and a basic color scheme! I started with the color of the table, turquoise. Keeping in mind that the futon is decorated with vintage sheets, I knew I wanted something bright and that possibly had a slightly retro feel. So, I started digging in my fabrics!
(You can find Domestic Bliss at The Intrepid Thread and Fat Quarter Shop, among other places!)

I bought my stack from Fresh Squeezed Fabrics, who also happens to be In Color Order's newest sponsor! It's thanks to Randi that I sewed my first real purse! About a year and a half ago I won a kit from her shop and promptly sewed up my castle peeps purse! :)
Potato Chip Cookies from Smitten Kitchen. They are goooood! Almost too good, especially considering the amount of sugar and butter in them! Oh well! :)
