~pillows pillows pillows!~

hello everyone!

It's favorite day of the week :)

I've been busy sewing all week and
finally have my new stuff in the store!

I thought you might like a peek....

I've been using some really neat
vintage french feedsack graphics
 ~ lots of fun to play with!

these pillows show my favorites!

the La Forteress pillow is made with a nice
lightweight linen....

next up....cow cows right now...

the milkmaiden pillow is a simpler version
of La Pegase......the Pegasus pillow has piping
and a cute tie closure, the milkmaiden has an
envelope style closure.

This one's fun...a little different fabric...
very distressed, vintage feel

Now for the romantic ruffly stuff.....
you know how I love my ruffles! ;)

these are really so fun to dream up!

ok so first up is the extra big
Monogram Ruffle Pillow....
customized with the initial of your choice~

this pillow is made with a wonderful
 linen & cotton fabric.....I love it because the texture
is so awesome!

it's made with teeny little ruffles all the way around.....

ok next ~
my 14 yr old daughter tried to steal this
one as soon as I showed her...
and she's not a ruffle kind of girl...

and favorite (I think....)

the "Birds in a Nest" Double Ruffle Pillow....
this one is made with natural linen, and has
a double row of raw edged ruffles...

that's all of 'em!
well, I do have a couple others waiting to
be sewn but.....for now...

Thanks so much for coming by!

oh wait~ almost forgot the weather!
Anne, this is for you :)

ok....overcast skies breaking up for a sunny
afternoon.....right now it's just about 70, and the
high today is mid to high 70's!
crazy weather but I'm loving it!

I'd love your feedback on my new stuff :)

Have a fabulous weekend!!

Girl, you DO know that I'm gonna need some of these for our new cottage, right?
Little stinker, separating me from my hard earned money, Hummmph!

Beautiful pillows! Wanted to also thank you for the advice on the hydrangea's...they have dried to perfection :)

Shaunna said...

So, is it weird that I saw your Forteresse pillow and went to your shop and bought it? before I even finished the post?? LOVE it and can't wait to get it...and feature it on my blog! Beautiful!

Gracefully Vintage said...

Ok Mam, love the pillows, How in the heck, please email me to help, i tried the iron on, and the sticky part was still on the whole piece of fabric ( i used the same KW-est. one) Help..
Your are Just Lovely..

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Shellagh,
I love them all, was going to try to pick a favorite but it's too difficult. The Pegasus is always close to my heart though, had one of the loveliest teachers of mythology way back when and he holds a special place in my heart. Your art is just beautiful! Happy Friday and weekend.

Faded Charm said...

Looks like you've been a busy girl! These pillows are all wonderful. I'm home now and just curious if you found the fabric. Let me know if I need to pick some up or if you even still have timeto make it.

Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Shellagh - LOL! I had to laugh at Shaunna's comment because I did the exact same thing!! :)
I had to have that beautiful 1898 pillow because my farmhouse was built that year. Beautiful pillows - every single one of them! And looking forward to getting mine in the mail! :)
