A few weeks ago, I needed a specific fabric, and some red ribbon, so off to fabricland I headed. As soon as I walked in the door, I was confronted with this fabric...
And loved it right off. So, of course, even though I had no idea what I would do with it, I bought some and some in red, too. So, did I get the other fabric I needed? Well.... no, but I did remember the red ribbon!
Yesterday, I was in a creative mood, so, I whipped up a couple pillow covers out of it.
The christmas theme is subtle, which I like, because it means I can put them out sooner!
And then, inspired by this pillow here, I whipped up another cover last night.
There's no Silhouette in my craft room, so I did up the letters the old fashioned way with freezer paper.
The word "vintage" I printed directly onto a piece of muslin. To do this, I iron a piece of muslin onto a piece of freezer paper, then shoot it through my inkjet printer. You have to be careful it doesn't jam, though. And... shhh... don't tell anyone, but I just glued the muslin piece on. I'm not planning on washing it, so it shouldn't be a problem.
What kind of a Christmas are you dreaming of? The word vintage could easily be substituted.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Last week was spent up at my parents' place so my husband could test out his deer hunting skills. I've got a few christmas projects on the go, including a great advent calendar. And I should have a few furniture makeovers to share with you soon, too.
