It's been quite awhile since I've posted on our blog....I hope everyone is doing well!
Around Christmastime, I decided our master bedroom bedding was getting dull...the old was becoming....well, old....not to mention, I was completely bored of the colors! So, I found an inexpensive white quilt and decided to bring in my own colors. (No, I didn't make the quilt....I wanted something on the spot, ready to go!) What I love: if I get bored with THIS color scheme, I can easily change it!
I spent an evening making pillowcases....9 in all...and what a fabulous look it made with the new white quilt. It was an inexpensive option compared to purchasing new pillow shams + throw pillows, and I got to choose the colors I wanted!
Here's a peek at the new pillowcases....that is Pebbles (Chihuahua) sitting there in the middle, looking oh-so-comfortable!
And here is a swatch card I made, showing the huge lot of fabrics I combined to get this look:
Yes, it's a huge mix: I tried to combine both feminine & masculine in this grouping....by using some of the pieces just for pillowcase borders, it was easy to incorporate a big variety without some of the prints being too over-powering.
In case you want give this a try, I've put together a bundle that will let you make 6 pillowcases, they are my favorites from this aqua-blue grouping!
about 10 oz thousand island dressing (buy the regular 16 oz size & you'll have plenty!)
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons medium salsa
Preapre meat & seasoning accoding to package directions. Prepare sauce by stirring all together in a separate bowl...I let it sit a little so the sugar dissolves. Toss all together & add Doritos last.
TIPS: only add a few Doritos if you think you'll be saving some of the salad as leftovers (they get soggy & you can always add fresh ones as you go!) If you don't have enough dressing, just toss a little more thousand island and a bit of sugar together, then add to the salad.
You can pre-order if you'd like to reserve your yardage! We will ship your order as soon as the fabric arrives. Pre-orders are cut off the bolt first! We won't charge you for the order until we actually ship your package. :o)
A red & black color combo was the initial inspiration for this bundle! Once I saw Michael Miller's Any Cup Will Do, I decided to take this bundle in a slightly vintage direction. You'll see vintage dishes, checkerboard, and red "speckled enamelware". (I'm not sure if red enamelware was ever made, but it fit with the theme, so I decided to use it!). There's a little daisy play going on here, too....black & white daisies and the black PETALS print by Michael Miller!
