A few weeks ago I dropped by my favorite GW. I was thrilled to find this great French inspired wall clock, I have a thing about clocks, I have them everywhere. That sounds like another post for another day. But on this day not only did I find a beautiful clock but I also picked up two pieces of designer fabric. Each piece was pretty small. The large check was about 1/2 yard and the smaller check was just less than a yard.And they both matched my color scheme They were not marked and when the clerk said fabric goes for a 1$/yard I was thrilled. Quality designer fabrics for a 1.50. Does thrift shopping get any better than that?
I really liked the way the checked fabric looked with the dining room curtains and I immediately started figuring out what to do with this beauty.I had two of these tuck in pillow forms so I decided to make two lumbar pillows for the cane dining room chairs.The material was about 1 1/2 inches too short so I patched a few pieces and added it on to the end of the material. Yes, I do need a new ironing board cover, this one is from the 80’s.It was a bugger to match this plaid but can hardly see it.If you haven’t tried these pillow forms you might want to check them out. No sewing and you can easily change the material for a different look.I tried using the floral from the window panels for the end piecesbut I liked the plaid better. Eventually these chairs will be white and the pop of color will be great.
I am crazy about how these turned out. Not too shabby for 25 cents a pillow.
Thanks for reading,
