Just before Christmas I discovered this fabric and fell in love with it.
I kept thinking about all it's lineny goodness and where I could put it in my house. Finally, I decided to make some pillows for my favorite spot in the whole house - my wingback chairs.
As you can see, this room is very neutral, mainly warm grays, browns and a bit of green. So, when I saw this fabric which included a watery blue with the green, I knew I had to have it. This picture is more like the true color of the fabric.
Since this is a large scale fabric, I would normally not use it for small lumbar pillows. Large scale fabrics look best on large pillows or for drapery panels. But I broke the rules! I picked out my favorite bird in the pattern and worked it into the center of each pillow. I also included my favorite trim (for the moment) which is a flat flange with a bit of detail on the corners.
The other great thing about these . . . I only used a yard of fabric. So, when (and if) I tire of them, I will be off to find another fabric to change the look for around $35.00 or less!
I have included this project in Todays Creative Blog link party! There are tons of crafty ideas included if you need a little project this weekend.
