The Pillow I Was Supposed To Post

This is the pillow I intended to photograph and post earlier this week when I posted another pillow for the second time.

I sewed it with an envelope back, using leftover white denim, drop cloth fabric and crocheted trims and buttons.

I added a couple of little stitched stars using embroidery floss, just winging and having fun creating.

I love that it looks kind of feminine which I sometimes crave in my home with three guys. The best part is that I had all the materials on hand. Gotta love a new look for zero dollars!

I haven't been posting as much lately and have had little time for projects at our home these past few weeks. I have been busy after work making cakes for a niece's baby shower, a great-niece's First Holy Communion and helping my sister paint and spruce up her main floor and front walkway for a special dinner party. I'm hoping next week looks better for some project time. What projects have you been working on lately?

I'm sharing this with....


  1. Elizabeth,
    It's very pretty...love the lace.


  2. I love your "winging it" pillow! Hope you're enjoying spending a bit of time on things other than home and blogging. That's healthy too, sometimes! Sometimes I feel like maybe there's such thing as too many projects. They all start to look the same after a while!

  3. Cute pillow idea....the color combinations are so soft and comfy looking....Mel's Designs

  4. very sweet, elizabeth! happy weekend!

  5. Your pillow is so romantic looking. How adorable, and who could beat zero buckaroos?

  6. I love your pillow. I have been working on pillows too. I did a patchwork one with 5" squares and a simple one out of two large printed napkins and my next one will be from a mans shirt. You have inspired me to look at doing one with lace or maybe a doily.

  7. You made a great looking pillow. I love how you were able to use different things you already had and combine them for something so pretty. I know what you mean about being busy. I will be in your shoes soon myself. We've got alot of family events coming up so I will be away too. Now, I'm wishing for July to get here. Then, I'll have a light calendar! Ha!

  8. This is beautiful, Elizabeth!

    I've loved reading about all your painting expeditions too! :)
