Combining High & Low

Ever wondered whether you can combine high quality fabric with something a little more low brow to make one pillow?  Well the answer is yes!


I'm sure you all remember the remnant fabrics that I purchased a couple months ago.  Yeah, the one I talk about incessantly.  One of my favs was a piece of Studio Bon-Scallop which is a beautiful and thick linen.  I actually had enough to do both sides but I'm trying to make this fabric go as far as possible.  When I scoured through my fabric stash I pulled out a cute fabric I purchased at Ikea last year.  The colours worked perfectly together and I've been wanting to use the cute birds for a while. 

I followed Barb's tutorial for adding an invisible zipper so I won't try to top that.   


So now I've got Side A to go with my Chiang Mai fancy pants...

And I've got Side B when I want to flaunt my casual, down-to-earth side.

  7. More bang for your buck - I love it! And you created it which is even better. I just ordered a black and white buffalo plaid fabric and I can't wait to turn it into a pillow.

  21. Fantastic pillow, you are so clever. We've spent a fortune on three lots of pillows for the living room. Every time we shift a painting or (just) got new couches, they look all wrong again. I give up.

  22. So every time I see one of these posts where you do something amazing with that lot of scrap fabric, I remind myself to look into getting a lot of scraps myself. I LOVE what you've done here! And that's such an impressive hidden zipper!
