I have a Red and White Hoosier cabinet standing in my kitchen. I bought it about this time last year at a flea market. Happy Birthday, Miss Hoosier.
Yes, she's a girl. How do I know? I just do. She looks as though she is standing there holding out her little apron (her marble table top). Sometimes she holds the cup of water for me while I get the dogs water bowl, but, for the most part, she holds mixing bowls, a couple of cook books, and a turquoise flour sifter. She sort of has a June Cleaver look about her, especially when she has pearls around her neck.
A Hoosier cabinet wearing pearls? Sure!
Well, they're not pearls, but they are to me because they make her look so pretty. See. Vanessa has a tutorial on her blog about how to make your own little banners. I have made Miss Hoosier several of these for different seasons, but I haven't made her one for Spring. She needed some Spring fashion!
Look how sweet!! And they're so quick and easy to make. I used 6 1/2 inch squares, instead of the 5 inch square that you find in charm packs, and double fold bias tape.
A couple of bunnies, a wreath with plastic Easter eggs hot glued on, a chick cookie jar that I bought from Target last year, and a cute Happy Easter sign made Miss Hoosier look so pretty for Spring.
The banner is the only project I finished sewing on this week. Be sure to go see what everyone else sewed this week at Amy's blog. I'm always amazed at the talent the Sew and Tell Friday sewers have.
