There’s been a whole lotta sew in’ goin’ on at Bella Manor!
I’ll be stocking the booth at the Rink from now until after Christmas with lots of goodies.
I took three new girly girl pillows earlier last week but forgot to take pics. Oops!
Here are some that I completed today.
Cute paisley with flanged/ruffled border. A great mix of fabrics for your home. Envelope back with a down insert. 16” without ruffles.
LOVE this pillow. Wonderful colors. The reds really blend with so many colors. I could have easily kept this one for myself. Down insert/18” without ruffles.
This pillow is made with a vintage flour sack that I found this Spring. I’ve just been waiting for the right inspiration to complete it. That inspiration come in the form of the vintage fabric that I used for the ruffle and the super cute flower trim that I found from probably around the 1970’s.
I love love that cute cow image.
This flour sack had a few stains, but I think it just adds to the vintage charm.
20” without the ruffles. And this one definitely had to have a down insert. So cute and “squishy.”
Lastly, I started a super fun project this weekend!
I don’t know about you, but my poor pathetic little brain is in over drive most of the time. Always some kind of crazy scheme going on in there. I know, kinda spooky!
So I thought…..appliqué…….
Lovin’ the contrast of the bright fabrics with the burlap. Probably button centers for the flowers? What do you think?
Oh….I forgot to mention that these are all panels for a large lamp shade. I hope hope that it turns out as cute as I have envisioned it. I’m doing a black and white ruffle on the top and pink pompom fringe around the bottom.
Heather has a large vintage lamp that we’re using for the base.
I am having tons of fun with this project. I think probably because it has a bit of a crafty side to it along with sewing so it’s “feeding” more than one of my crazy obsessions at once.
Hopefully, I’ll have this finished by the first of next week. It will also be for sale at the Rink.
So…..the fabric is piling up.
Right along with the pillow forms, and it seems like I haven’t seen the top of my farm table in weeks. Hopefully all of the hard work will pay off.
So that’s what’s going on here at Bella Manor. Do you have your Halloween costume yet? Yeah, me neither.
