Toile, Plaids and Checks for Fall

Toiles, plaids and checks in neutral tones are really appealing to me this season.


I sewed a new pillow using some toile rose fabric leftover from a friend and some strips of drop cloth (free fabric and pillow insert I had on hand, so the cost is $0.) I used the strips to surround the squares of toile and it reverses to the same pattern on the back. This pillow may appear in another room at some point because the colour and style would work in most rooms in our home, but for now it is on the rattan chair I slipcovered for in our living room.


The flannel throw is one I made two years ago (for around $25) and occasionally use as a table topper. I love the tans, greys and beiges in the plaids and checks and it is incredibly soft. Just perfect for snuggling on this cool and wet Autumn day.

I'm linking up to some of my favourite parties this weekend...
Air Your Laundry Friday at Freckled Laundry
Under $100 Linky Party at Beyond The Picket Fence
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
White Wednesday at Faded Charm
Home Sweet Home at The Charm of Home

  2. All your new fabrics looks so good! I just now removed my summer looking flowers from inside my house and replaced them with more suitable Fall touches. I'll post about that soon. We're supposed to get MUCH cooler temps this weekend and I'm so excited! My husband thinks we may even get to use our fireplace if it gets cold enough. It's been very windy and cool today already. Now I need a beautiful warm throw like you have!

  3. Very nice! I like them both. The plaid throw is such a nice neutral plaid and would look beautiful on a table especially for fall. I hope you have a nice weekend.
