As you know, I have slip covered my orange couch...
I have not shared a pic yet of how it came out
as I am wanting to share when it is all done : )
This past week I have had a few moments to work on some new pillows.
There were so many style options!
I finally decided I wanted to work with vintage linens and doilies.
This pillow was the easiest one. It was a lovely linen towel with a cut work design.
I used one of my favorite rhinestone pins to secure the front opening.
I had thought of using a pastel colored lining so as to show off the cut work more,
but then settled on only shades of white and cream for all the pillows.
This sweet little heart pillow case was a lucky find!
It is delicate fabric, and I needed to be careful as I created a heart shaped pillow insert for it.
I chose a deeper shade of cream for the liner.
This was is my favorite pillow so far.
I used two linen napkins with heavy crochet edges.
The unusual cross shaped doily was perfect for the background,
and the lovely darker circle doily was just right for the center.
The finishing touch is a beautiful mother of pearl vintage button
that I have been saving for something special.
It looks much nicer in "person".
The main part of the cross doily is machine sewn,
the other doilies are hand sewn to the napkin.
It has been a busy summer here, and I am slowly getting the projects done that I have been dreaming of. I still can't believe I actually finished the slipcovers!
Soon I will show all!
How are your summer projects coming along?
I have heard back from some of you that I have been sending out advertisements for...
certain kinds of "aids" for adults.....if you get my drift!
I am totally not doing this, but must have been hacked in some way that I can not even imagine.
So if you receive an odd message with my name attached to it, IT IS NOT ME! LOL!!!
I had actually received some of these e-mails and comments myself from another blogger, but didn't know her and though "Oh well, everyone makes money in different ways" but now I realize that the poor women probably doesn't even know that she has been hacked and that the messages are going out. I have gone back in my deleted files and found her and sent her a message letting her know.
Rest assured! I am only making pillows! Lol!!!
...not selling adult medications or "toys".
...no judgement on those that do : )
Also, I am having really weird things happening to my posts...
Blogger is adding hyperlinks randomly.
They do not show up on my compose window,
but they do on my preview window and on my post.
Anyone else have this?
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a fab day!
