tamy tipped me on these gorgeous lanterns by matthew mead some time back. well, they were for summer but they are just as apt for fall.

take an ikea isig lantern. with some double sided tape, line the inside of the glass with two sheets of paper back-to-back. repeat until all 4 sides of the lantern, including the door, are covered.

matthew’s decorative paper is downloadable from here.


skruvsta slipcover pattern


elsewhere, yvonne of yvestown is making her skruvsta slipcover pattern available for $15 $25 (includes one white fabric pattern fit to size, sewing instructions and postage). very handy is you’re the sewing type and want to make a funky slipcover of your own. you’ll need to email her if you’re interested in purchasing the pattern.

    Buy a white one (The cheapest) & take it to bits …….

    Ditto for the Ektorp pattern. My sewing is fine, but my spatial reasoning means pattern making is a bust. LOL

    I would pay for an Ektorp sofa slipcover pattern. bemz’s fabric choices don’t exactly thrill me.

    Do you have a pattern for the ektorp sofa and love seat? I would like to have more flexibility in my decor.
