vintage fabric pillow & my first show!

I am so excited- shortly before I was going to post today I got word that I was accepted into my first show of the year! Check that goal off the list for 2011!  Yahoo!

I was busy making this pillow last night.  My intention from the beginning was that it would be going up for sale.
Let me tell you- I am so in love with this fabric!!  I definitely will be making some for myself!
I found a vintage flat sheet at one of my favorite thrift shops, and the turquoise flowers had me instantly.  Bonus points for the lovely edging that I was able to cut off and use for embellishment.


This large lumbar pillow is super comfy.  I added the ball fringe that I absolutely adore.  I add it to so many things in my own home, because I find it so charming. 


Like I said before, I was able to use the top edge of the sheet to embellish the pillow- loving the embroidered edge and spray of flowers.  I also added some vintage buttons to it.

My plan is to also make some square pillows in the same fabric. 
I have several turquoise items that this will look great with in my space for the show!

Here's the promotional flyer that I received.  I will be posting an admission coupon on my sidebar shortly.  
This will be a super fun event in a gorgeous space!  

 If you are local, I hope to see you there!

  18. Visiting from FJI. This is just so pretty. I love the addition of the pom pom trim. The edge of the pillow was a great addition. I will be looking at old sheets at the thrifts more closely now!
