Pillow Shams

I've told you before that I am attempting to make a quilt using this pattern from Katy. I actually made it bigger, adding an extra row on the side and bottom, then divided it in two, added a border, and now have two twin quilt fronts for the girl's beds (they will be sharing a room soon!). I wanted to make matching pillow shams but couldn't find exactly what I was looking I made it up as I went. Here  is what I ended up with...

ruffles? check!
bows? check?
favorite fabric (dana from the honey child line)? check!

these were SO easy (would you kill me if I said, "sew easy"?)! I just measured a pillow case I already had, subtracted the "cuff" and sewed around the three sides. I then added coordinating ties and a quick ruffle. The pair took about an hour!

SkyeReve fabrics carries some of my favorite fabric designers...her selection is amazing and it is organized so you can easily find what you are looking for. She also has a huge sale section with some great fabric selections at very low prices. I got my material for the pillow shams from SkyeReve and it came wrapped so beautifully, it was like getting a present (and it arrived just three days after ordering). She carries Jennifer Paganelli fabrics at great prices (the above is from the Honey Child collection and is my favorite!!!). While shopping, check out her new collections:

  1. Love that the girls will be sharing a room soon! I shared a room, and a bed, with my sis for so long growing up, I would still sneak into her bed when we were teenagers and had our own rooms! Love the fabrics!

  2. Man, you are getting a lot done now that it's football season. ;) Loving all your projects and wishing I could sew. Great job!

  3. adorable! The fabric is too cute. You did a great job.

  4. Look at you! I miss my sewing machine so much. You inspire me to get it out and make something!
