Yeah I know it's a bit loud and vibrant. The joy of fabric with a great pattern is that sometimes the side they are selling you is not the beautiful side. I turned it around and this was what was on the other side.
See, it's soft and dreamy and beautiful. I hung onto my small amount of fabric until inspiration struck. I sew, but I'm not great. I spend a lot of time focusing my errors but this time I did a better than average job (well, for me at least). I had some beautiful white linen in my fabric supply so I did a white ruffled linen edge on my beautiful fabric. I love white linen, so crisp and it looked softer next to my fabric. When I was done I had this:
But then I had a suggestion to turn it around and emphasize the enclosure which I agreed added a bit more oomph. I knew what I needed, vintage rhinestones!! I love ebay, you can always find what you need. A few weeks later, and voila!!
It's a beautiful vintage rhinestone button.
It's the combination of soft fabric, white linen and the button that makes it my favourite.
I added a feather cushion inside. In fact all my pillows are feather, never ever poly fill. Feather allows you to lean back in comfort not get pushed out like a poly pillow does. There are so many cheap feather pillows out there, ikea is ridiculously cheap, and here in Canada Jysk is where I got my euro cushions and lots of other feather size cushion inserts. As well, sale bins are filled with pillows with ugly unusable patterns but with a zipper and a feather fill it can be turned into what you want.
So I guess the thing is sometimes wrong is right, and toss the poly go for the comfort of feather. You deserve it.
Until next time,
