Vintage fabric pillow cover

Feeling crafty last night, I was inspired by a generous gift of vintage fabrics from a dear friend. I needed some throw pillows and thought I would attempt to make some 'envelope' style covers for my bare naked pillow forms. I must say I am pretty pleased with how they turned out! It was quite simple to make and looks fantastic! What do you think??





Turned out pretty good hey? Have you ever made one? Do you have any DIY home decor triumphs? If you would like details on how I made this lemme know and I will cook something up!

I also went thrifting and found some excellent pieces!



I saw this and was ecstatic about it's potential! I have seen similar sideboards for HUGE COIN! My coin? Ten smackers! Even Mr C likes this piece!



See the little stool my Charlie is perched on?? Four dollars and loads of potential. Charlie has claimed this so I guess I will recover this for him! He love it!
Stay tuned for pics of the above unfinished yet to be fabulous finds! So many projects...So little time! How fun!
