I love all of the inspiration that I find floating out there in cyberspace. While browsing the other day I saw this photo of pillow shams from the website Epic Linens. (Thanks to Debra at Common Ground.) Aren't they gorgeous? I love the subtle contrast of the white lace against the natural linen.
Hmm, maybe I can make something similar!
I bought this lot of vintage doilies years ago. You know, the kind of thing our grandmothers (or great-grandmothers) used to put under everything like vases and figurines. I only paid a couple of dollars for about 10 of them. However, with no plan of what to do with them they have sat in my sewing stash for several years! Please don't tell me I'm the only one who does this.
I knew I also had some lovely linen fabric left over from some draperies I made oh, 20 years ago. Did I mention I save stuff?
So I made several little "Boudoir "pillows.
Very sweet, n'est-ce pas?
