Faux Fur Pillows- Winter Masterbed Refresh

Pillow Bling – DIY Pillows-how to cover flaws in fabric

This Spring I wanted to spruce up our patio by making new cushions for the patio furniture.  I was hunting for a tropical Sunbrella (outdoor) fabric until I came across this Richloom designer fabric for $4.00 a yard  (normally sells for $20.00 ++ a yard).   Needless to say my hunt for outdoor fabric just went out the door.  Eureka, so I thought.

Bohemian Bed Scarf -DIY with colorful yarn trim

A Bed Scarf.  One of my favorite things to sew and create.

I chose a completely different print for the reverse side. Smaller in width so the top fabric shows as a trim when flipped … Continue reading Bohemian Bed Scarf -DIY with colorful yarn trim
