Shabby Chic Bed Shams

 
I finished sewing my version of the Shabby Chic
Pillow Shams yesterday.
Now I know these to be authentically shabby because I (Kimberly) personally ripped every ruffle with my own two hands and then hand gathered each one!
I’m not sure if I told you what  fabric I used for my Shabby Chic Shams? 
It was cheap, white gauzy tea-towels!
 
 

Now on to the bedroom.
I spent a good deal of the day digging around in the basement in my totes looking for this particular lavender Scottish Shaw.
I love the colours in it and want to incorporate the deep lavender colour into our bedroom.
I also have a very pretty matching wool blanket which I will show you later.

  8. Wow! Those are high fashion, girl! You did a great job but then you do on everything. I've been so “distracted” lately running from one project to another. This is such a busy time of year for me…and expensive! Glad to see someone is “calm and carrying on”! The throw is gorgeous and I can't wait to see the blanket and your plans for your bedroom!

  10. Kimberly- yay! you finished your pillows. They look every bit as good as I thought they would. I like the idea of lavender being incorporated. I'm sure it is going to be gorgeous. We're not as cold as you, and we don't have snow… but still chilly. I am loving it. Stay warm ~Pat

  11. I just LOVE the shams, and the lavender throw colors are beautiful! Looking forward to seeing that finished room. We are FINALLY going to have a temp drop today…we have been in the 90's the last few days, sigh. NOT very holiday feeling. But not suppose to get over 65 today which is cool to me, lol. Enjoy your week-end!
