Sewing up a Storm

October 25, 2011

This past weekend I dusted off the sewing machine and unearthed some fabrics in my pile and whipped up some pillows.

One pillow was made from another memo I had of Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis fabric in green.

Using some linen I had in my stash I made this:

How I love free fabric samples of luxurious fabric!

Tomorrow I will share another fabulous pillow I made for my daughter's room.

  1. Gorgeous fabrics. Your cushion with the small piece of trellis fabric is a great way to use up smaller pieces.

    Great idea for the primo pieces I recently ordered from Tonic Living,

  2. Must be nice to "whip" up some pillows - and they look so gorgeous Barbara!

  3. Fantastic - I love the inset panel of pattern against the solid linen. Really lovely!

  4. Lovely. Great fabric. I am doing a bit of a bedroom refresh and am planning on sewing some pillows...will likely be using your how to posts to guide me through! Thanks for sharing!

  5. So envious of the ability to sew! Your fabric/colour choices are superb!

  6. Beautiful Barbara! You know I love the green!

  7. Love these fabrics. I really need to learn to sew!
    Have a lovely day, Barbara,

  8. You've always got a project simmering on the side, don't you?!! Great pillow...I think it's about time I dusted off my sewing machine :)

  9. oh, love what you did, talk about fabulous samples! Janell

  10. Oh Martha... I mean Barbara, you are so talented! I love the material and how you've made a separate panel.

  11. Love it! And your project for your daughter's room looks like way more fun than mine right now... cleaning the vintage - who knows where it's been - brass hardware was more than I bargained for!

    Can't wait to see tomorrow's pillow!

  12. What an awesome way to use sample fabrics - they turned out great!

  13. I'm so jealous I need to learn how to sew. Beautiful pillows, great job.

  14. Barbara, you are SOOOO good! You could sell that pillow you know - for good money!



  15. Wow, that is gorgeous!! You are very talented with sewing and make me think I should go uncover my sewing machine...

  16. The trellis looks insanely good Barbara, and I love the linen you used as a border, it goes so well! Can't wait to see what else you have done, I am so jealous of your skills!! Hugs,

  17. Your pillows are fantastic!
