Things have been mostly picked up after Christmas and everyone is busy doing their own thing. It is my turn to take some time for myself. I have a stack of fabric, cutter tablecloths, pillow inserts and rick rack. Whats a girl to do?
I am using this fantastic sunflower cutter tablecloth with some Michael Miller polka dot prints and a vintage white linen napkin.
The size of my pillow is 14x21 (travel size) and I worked out a pattern on my cutting board allowing for my seam allowance and places for vintage trim.
This spare piece of lace came off of an Estate sale napkin. I have used 3 sides of the napkin for 2 projects. I could kick myself for not grabbing more of them but hind sight is 20/20. I sandwiched it between the tablecloth and the napkin.
Rick Rack makes everything look better. Ruffles do too!
I made an envelope opening in the back for washing. Sewing is just gratifying. From nothing to something in hours. A little bit of new mixed with the old classics.
For now it will sit here, behind my back...I am looking for that perfect chair to slipcover in white. You know the kind that someone wants to throw away that you get for pennies on the dollar and love to bits. Yes, you know the one!
I am joining in on the fun at the Blogger's Pillow Party.
