Copycat Challenge ~ Blogger Edition

I was thrilled when Debbie decided to do a Copycat Challenge linky party highlighting projects we find inspiration from that other bloggers provide!  I find them often!  I do try to add my own twist to them, though, rather than doing exact copies. I have a couple I just did recently that I thought I would share for the party.

Apron.   I found this one months ago at Miss Flibbertigibbit and have had it saved to make.  Lorraine made this cool apron as a copycat from a magazine.  I liked it so much, I wished it was a skirt {and I did wind up upcycling some Goodwill skirts I found into a ruffled denim skirt}!

This was an easy and quick project that didn’t cost me anything! Everything I used I already had at home.  That post is here.

Silverware HolderThe next project was inspired by Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict.  I get a lot of inspiration from Debbie’s projects.  This one was an image she got from The Graphics Fairy and added the text.

Debbie made tea towels with hers {and in a separate post made a really great silverware holder with a different graphic}.  I kind of combined two of her ideas into this one.  You can find the full post here.

There are others, but these two are the most recent.  I get so much inspiration from all the talented bloggers out there and here’s a big Thank You to these two! 

Don’t forget to enter my Summer Giveaway running on my blog here, that runs through August 4th!

Fun copycat ideas. The pocket for the silverware is unique. Haven't thought about putting my silverware in a pocket before!
Really liked the breadboard makeover too.
