Saturday In The Studio...

Saturday in the studio was quite productive.
I still have a few gifts on my To Do list,
but I can cross these off my list now.

I made two pillows using this image - one for a blog friend and
one for a dear friend who will be celebrating her birthday this month.
(She also gifted me all the
gor-jus vintage laces that I used on the pillows.)
My favorite fabric, muslin ruffles, vintage laces and buttons and
the picture from My Vintage Studio. Thanks so much,
sweet Sharon, for sharing this image with your online friends.
I absolutely love it and will be using it again soon!
Then, I made this pillow as a
belated birthday gift for someone very special.
This image was courtesy of Karen at The Graphics Fairy.
Thank you, Karen, for your generosity to all of us in Blogland.
Another favorite creamy fabric, lace and vintage buttons.
I made the little rustic rosettes, and then sewed the button on top.
Each pillow measures approx. 13" x 10".
(You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.)

I've been asked a few times about my creamy, dreamy fabric.
No, I didn't cut up a quilt, and I didn't quilt it myself.
It's a home dec fabric, and it really is one
of my favorites to use for pillow projects.

Don't overlook the home dec section when you're
looking at fabric. It's usually a little heavier, but there is
always a great selection of pattern, color and texture
that you can use for pillows, totes, aprons and purses.

So, do you love pillows?
Do you think I should make a few
more like these for my Boutique?
I'd love to know what you think.

That fabric really is lovely Donna. I have been admiring it in all your recent posts. It certainly has been perfect for the projects you have used it in. I'm sure if you made pillows for your boutique that they would be snapped up.

That is very lovely fabric. It really goes well with the decoration. xx

Mandy said...

Thanks for letting us know where you got the gorgeous fabric from. It is surprising what you can find when looking around.
My favourite places are my local charity shops here in the UK.

Beautiful pillows!

Sandra said...

Oh my yes, I do love your pillows! They are lovely and the folks receiving them will be well pleased.
One of my goals this summer is to learn how to do photo transfers, they add SO much to a project, don't they?

Vintage Sandy said...

Oh yes add them to your boutique they are lovely as is the fabric itself!

These are amazingly lovely, Donna! I SO love the cute little whale...Karen does have such wonderful graphics on her site. I truly love the creamy color combo you use for your work. It's so dreamy and very feminine. Thinking of redoing our bedroom in the future with such a combo! Have a wonderful Sunday! Theresa

Love your pillows!
Hummmm...I just got some material very similar to yours (from the Home Decor section). I am going to use it to cover a small rocker. Now I know what I should do with my leftovers. Thanks for the idea!!

Stacey said...

Hi Donna! Your pillows are so pretty and vintagey. Great job!

Deb said...

I think that your pillows are wonderful. All very pretty. I did wonder about that fabric you used for them. I seem to remember seeing it at Joanne's once upon a time. Never bought any though and now I wish that I had.

Debby said...

Hi Donna, what beautiful gifts you have created, love all of them.

Jane said...

The pillows are absolutely beautiful! I love the fabric, the lace and the vintage images. You always do such gorgeous work.

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Wow, Donna!

Now no offense to any other bloggers out there who sew or make pillows, but you can just tell by looking at yours how high the quality is. Really a cut above.

Dang girl, you are SOMETHING!

I hope you have a wonderful week!

I like your style Donna, the little girl image is a sweetie.

Michelle May said...

Well you know I love them! And yes, you should make more to sell. People will scoop them up!
That fabric is totally dreamy!
