A Little Chiang Mai and a Little Betwixt

Remember my awesome fabric score?  I finally pulled out the old sewing machine and started piecing my scraps together.  I knew from the second the box arrived at my house that Chiang Mai Dragon would be a pillow.  The dilemma was how to achieve this given the small amount I had to work with.  Enter Celerie Kemble Betwixt.


Arent' they a match made in heaven?  I planned a tutorial but the camera's exposure setting had been changed and they look as though I was photographing the project directly on top of the sun!  Don't worry though because now that the sewing machine is out I'll be whipping up several more.

  1. Those fabrics compliment each other so well - and I really like the pop of lime / lemongrass on the fabric behind to set off the very dark navy of Betwixt.

  2. Love it! Those fabrics look great together and makes the chiang mai even more special :)

  3. Love how they work so well together! Isn't that chiang mai not only a gorgeous pattern but such a luxurious fabric as well? I love the weight and feel of it! Did you use a velvet ribbon as an accent like I did? I love velvet ribbon and can't wait to use it on something else!

    My chevron fabric arrived in the mail last week. Can't wait to make roman blinds for the kitchen and some pillows for that icky sectional in the family room. Hoping after spring break to tackle painting walls!

  7. I recently put a pair of chiang mai pillows in a client's guest room/office with a Betwixt cornice over the window. Match made in heaven. Nice work!

  9. What a fabulous pattern & color combination. (I'm convinced Betwixt will go with just about everything.)
    Great idea to piece your scraps together to make a pillow.
