The Slip

Hello all,

                    I've been m.i.a.  for a while, but I'm glad to be back. I've been recuperating and not able to do a lot of big projects. As soon as I felt like  I wasn't going to meet the true death  (True Blood Fans?) I made a few a pillow slips and did a few other small projects.  I wanted grain sack pillows... however the cost of vintage grain sacks are not in my budget, so I made faux grain sacks from drop cloth  fabric and paint. I also made burlap pillows...two plain and two with images transferred onto them. I don't know about you guys but I really like the Union Jack on pillows, so I made a shabby chic version on burlap. So without further ado here are the pillows:

I made pillow slips to cover the down pillows that came with my sofa.  I have more to share later, but I'm off to run errands. I don't know why my pics have this weird blue tone. Oh well..you get the idea. Later peeps.
I'm linking up at  Elements Interiors  for Whassup Wednesday and  Savvy Southern Style  for Wow us Wednesday and  The Shabby Chic Cottage  for Transformation Thursday and  My Romantic Home  for Show and Tell Friday.

  7. Just love the Union Jack! I've been experimenting with some faux grain pillows as well. My husband thinks that every time he comes home there is another pillow on the bed! He's probably right. Love yours.
