White Wednesday: Sewing Project; White Pillow Shams
Today I'll be joining Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday!
Some time ago I mentioned that I wanted to sew some Euro pillow shams to go with my "summer bedding"( click HERE to read that post). I did finally accomplish this project this weekend!
I already had the 26x26 size pillow inserts, so I just needed to make new shams. I chose this pretty white fabric with embroidered white flowers. I had initially picked out a beautiful white eyelet fabric that had ruffled bands of lace in a cross-hatch pattern, but when I saw the price per yard for it, I decided on something less expensive.
I made them with a simple envelope back; my usual design. I thought about adding a ruffle around them, but then decided I wanted them simple.
So pretty! I'm happy with how they turned out. I even have some fabric left that I can make something else with; perhaps napkins? Or a small boudoir pillow for the bed? Hmmmmm...
I also wanted to show this beautiful white cutwork embroidered tablecloth, which was a steal for $3 at Goodwill.
