Pillows, Pillows, Pillows

Oh how I love pillows, the more the merrier.
I thought I would share a glimpse of the fabrics that I will be making the  pillows, dust ruffle and curtains out of.

I found 2 yards of this fabulous vintage fabric at my grandmas house this weekend, it was  just enough to make some great pillows. I used the wrong side of the fabric because it was actually prettier, less  shinny and more colorful. Because of the way it was woven you can't tell it's the wrong side.  I love when that happens.

  1. I find myself doing that a lot too -- using the "wrong" side of fabrics. Usually it's just more textury and casual. Very cool fabric combinations! :)

  5. I love going through older peoples linen closets. They truely have some great stuff an they took such great care of them. (At least that's been my experience)
    I too, like the look of the wrong side of fabric sometimes. It's just different and you know that no one else will do that!
    I can't wait to see your finished products.

  6. That's going to look beautiful all together, Trixie! I love the colors. I keep the fabric sample swatches that I order for clients and have some where you could use the wrong side of the fabric. You're right ~ sometimes the wrong side looks better!

  9. I LOOVE those fabrics! The blue and brown damask-ish one is to die for. I'm all about pillow too, especially because I am an amateur seamstress and all that's is required is to sew a straight line, which half the time I can't even do that:) Can't wait to see how they turn out!
