Remember the little posies that I made? I’ve found a home for two of them.
The little scrim cutie found its new home on a lamp shade slipcover along with some other vintage elements. I gathered some cute lace trim behind it to give my posy a little more “personality!”
These shades are so so easy to make! You gotta try it. Again, I used flower sack kitchen towels, sewed on all of my trim, and added tulle on the back to tie the entire slip.
The second little posy, also made out of scrim, found its new home on a pretty colorful pillow.
This was before it was stuffed. You can find this cutie at the Rink if you are interested. I added a yummy sheer fabric behind this one.
Now……back to lamp shades. Have you ever stumbled on something that just turned out toooo cute? Totally by accident.
I was in T.J. Maxx last week and spied something so cute in another ladies basket. I asked her where she found it and the pointed me to the opposite side of the store. The children's department to be exact.
So I race across the store and grab one. Then I see another, equally as cute, and throw it in my basket also. What? Just the cutest little girls skirts you have ever ever seen! At this point, I know that I have completely lost my mind. There’s not a single little girl in the family that these will fit.
I bring them home, still questioning my sanity, and then…….BINGO!
A lamp shade slipcover is born!
Is that not just the cutest fabric ever!?
To cover the waist band, I used my new favorite fabric again…..scrim. Then I dug out a few little beaded cuties to cover my knot.
I love the scrim tie. I looks just shabby enough that it bring the shade from overly frou frou to perfectly shabby!
This skirt was $12.99! A bargain for a gorgeous updated shade!
So the OTHER little skirt is just “hanging around.” I just couldn’t help myself for $10.00!
At the very least, I need to search for a cute little hanger to display it on. is that not just the PERFECT pink!? I sure wish I had one to wear. I wouldn’t look silly or anything……would I?
Been busy busy here! Lots to show you this week. Have a wonderful evening.
