We almost have our barn door up. We ran into a few snags but are working them out and should have it up this week. I can't wait!
So, in the meantime, I've worked on some other small things. I don't usually buy throw pillows very often. Every once in a while I'll find something I really like and buy it but usually I'd rather make mine out of whatever fabric I'm using in my room.
I ordered this gold damask fabric along with the tassel fringe when I ordered the blue damask. I canceled the blue when the company notified me that they required a minimum order of five yards. I couldn't use all five yards and I didn't want to spend that much money. I had ordered this gold fabric, thinking I would use it too, but when it came I decided to make all my pillows from it.
The blue in this fabric is very subtle but the tassel fringe had all three of the colors of the fabric and was perfect to tie everything together.
I first made two big shams out of the damask. I measured my fabric up against a king-sized pillow and cut it out with enough to fold over.
This little one I made with what fabric I had left after all the others. I would have liked it to be a little larger but this is all the gold damask fabric I had left. If you're wanting to make these same pillows and want this one to be bigger, you'll need to order more than 2 yards.
I made one small square pillow with blue on both sides.
The large shams are tucked behind the shams that came with the spread. The gold pillow in the middle was one I already had (ready-made). It has small fleur-de-lis in the fabric.
I got my French chaise painted and reupholstered today. It needs a pillow. I probably am going to have to make some more! lol
If you're on Spring Break this week, I hope you have a wonderful time!
love and blessings~
