Sew Shabby Chic!



Shabby Chic Pillows & Vintage Flower Basket

Spent the weekend sewing throw pillows.
  They all coordinate with each other so I can mix and match for different looks.  Made from scraps of fabric and embellished with bits of lace, ribbon and buttons.
Isn't it wonderful when you can turn a bunch of "this and that" into something so pretty!

I found the fabulous vintage basket from the thrift store last week for $2.  So shabby chic with it's soft pink paint and old paper flowers.  I love how the flowers have turned yellow with age.
So perfectly imperfect.

Hello Elizabeth,
I loved this idea so much! Years ago I made pillows similar to this but with old linen's.
Hope you're doing well! We just had a ceremony on Sat. For renewing our vows. It was really special!
I pinned a picture to my Pinterest board :)
Blessings, Roxy

Hi Elizabeth,
I am loving your pillows! How scrumptious they all are. Love all the lace and femininity you applied to each one. Wish I could sew. Thank you for sharing your pretties at my HOME and enjoy the rest of your week.
