Blog Swap ~ Blue Cricket Design~

Hi there! As I mentioned before, I am doing the blog swap today. It was so hard for me to not to spoil the surprise. I am very thrilled to have Becca from Blue Cricket Design here today! Her blog is one of the cutest blogs out there. If you haven't met her yet, here is your chance to get to know her.

I will be over at Blue Cricket Design to share my tutorial today. Come check it out if you are wondering what I am up to. Ok Becca, take it away!!

Hi Tea Rose Home Fans! I'm Becca From Blue Cricket Design and I could not be more excited to be here on Sachikos' beautiful blog! I have to say that I simply adore Sachiko! I think her talent is easily seen here and I am so honored to be here on her happy blog!

I'm a mother and wife and lover of Mint Oreos! I am a self taught sewer and could spend hours at Home Depot in the paint department if I had hours to spare! I am addicted to fabric and can't go anywhere without looking at the world around me in "Tutorial Mode!" Everything has become a step by step possibility and I have to say I LOVE IT!

I've created a simple and easy St. Patrick's Day project for you to enjoy! I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of this holiday! I think it has to do with the fact that it has limited projects. I'm not exactly into commercial decorations for any holiday so this one becomes even more limited if I'm not in the mood for Leprechauns and pots of gold on my walls!

Here's an easy way to get into the spirit of the holiday without going too commercial! Spice up your kitchen with a simple Green Tea Towel and consider yourself good!

I bought these towels at the dollar store! Never under estimate the power of your local Dollar Store! Don't limit yourselves to the holiday selection. These green towels were in the housewares section!

And all we'll do is add some green Ric Rack and Ruffles! It really it that easy!

Pin them in place...

And straight stitch them on!

It's the tiny little details that add just the right amount of personal touch! For less then $2 You too can create a St. Patty's day Accent!

I'd love for you to come and see what else keeps me busy! Blue Cricket Design is my collection of all thing creative! I have a weekly linking party every Wednesday that allows you to show off your own amazing creations! Come join in on the fun!

Thanks again Sachiko! You are as charming as they come!

Mmmm...what a cute towel! This tutorial is transformable to any holidays, you just need to change the color theme. Wouldn't you agree?

Thank you so much for the great tutorial Becca! Oh, Becca one last thing, I have never tried mint oreos before, you got me interested!


  1. never would have guessed those were from $1 store!

  2. So cute-- what a sweet, simple idea!

  3. Hi there,
    I love reading your blog and am just starting a blog of my own for moms who do it all. I am trying to get my blog out there so I have two big give-aways going on right now and was hoping you could share them with your readers. Here are the links to the give-aways:

    Thanks so much!

  4. You're so clever! How do you come up with all these projects?!

    Btw... I just posted a giveaway on my blog. It's really cute and I'd love for you to enter.

  5. Thank you so much for your brilliant tutorials,Sachiko.
    On Friday I saw the 'ruffly shirt tutorial', so bought a couple of t-shirts to use, and have now completed customising my t-shirt. I love it! I've mentioned you and linked up to my blog, I hope that's ok, but I just had to share your tutorial, it was so easy to follow.

    Thank you again, and have a lovely Sunday

    Sadie (Cotton Rose)
