Hi Everyone! Hope you all have been having a good week so far ~ we've had some very nice warm weather here in my part of Michigan.
Today I wanted to share some photos with you of a couple of pillows that I created for myself ~ yes, on VERY rare occasions I do make things for our home, lol. Both pillow covers were created with a couple of sheets found at Goodwill.
This first photo shows them displayed together ~ perfectly shabby white, and oh-so-cottage chic.
For this first cover, I added a piece of Vintage linen that I've had for a while now, and was just waiting for the right way to display it ~ I think using it on this pillow is perfect. All I did to attach it to the cover is used a zig-zag stitch.
Here is a close-up ~ I adore the pretty rose design in the center.
This one has a lovely French inspired Graphic fabric block applied to the top...again, just using a zig-zag stitch ~ I love how the ends are fraying just slightly, giving it that perfect shabby chic look.
Here is a close-up of the fabric block. I purchased it over a year ago from a seller on Etsy, and had originally applied it to a pillow case, as it was larger in size. So for this pillow, I simply cut it down smaller to fit the cover...I like it much better.
I also wanted to show you a mirror that my husband found at a Garage sale for $5 ~ It's a Syroco mirror, and as you can see, I've already got it painted white. Now I just need to find a place to hang it, lol>
The last photo to show you is my new slipcover I made for my ottoman....I loved the one I created for it previously, but I really wanted to have it white to go better with my chair. I made the slipcover from one of the sheets that I found at Goodwill, along with using the rest to create the pillow with the French Graphic. I am so loving this new cover ! Little by little I am slowing incorporating more white into my home, and I am loving how it all is looking. Don't worry, I am still keeping plenty of pink in my home as well, as it is my favorite color.
Until next time sweet friends!!
