Making pillow covers and a new ornament

Happy, happy day everyone I’m so glad that you have come for a visit! I’ve been making pillow covers that match my French Nordic + Shabby Chic + Prairie Style = Romantic Farmhouse.

Here is an easy way to make them.

H pillow e

I used an old sheet to make the ones shown (no expense). I am making 18″ X 18″ pillows. So I measure out 19 X 42 inches. For different sizes add or subtract 2 inches.

H pillow sewing

Sew a small hem on each end of the fabric. . .

H making 3

so it looks like this on each.

H making lace

I wanted some shabby ruffles on these so I pinned and sewed on three rows of them.

H making p

Pin and sew the sides.

Inside out the cover and insert your pillow form. These covers are so easy and inexpensive.

Here are the other pillows that I made, all in a beautiful neutral tones.

I really love the look.

H ornaments

Here is a lovely new ornament that I made. I used some darling Victorian photos on them.

I also need to brag today and tell my Son Nathan how proud I am for becoming a member of the Unified Fire Department in Salt Lake City. He has worked very hard to get here.

Have a fun time making holiday decor, this is such a great time of year to do so!

Life is so LOVERLY when you are doing what you love!
