To Bee or Not To Bee

DSC07775_6795

This is the first of three new pillows I’m doing for my master bedroom.  The other two will just be pillow covers that will allow me to still use the pillows in their original form, if I decide to.  I’m using up the rest of the toile fabric that I used for the bed crown panels and I had just enough to do the pillows.  I used some Osnaberg fabric {which is so great to keep on hand for so many projects} and this graphic from The Graphics Fairy.  Well, the bee and wreath part is, I’m not sure where I found this altered version.  If you know ~ let me know and I’ll edit for credit.

For this lumbar pillow I used the toile for a ruffle on both short ends. With the pillow form on sale {or you can use a coupon}, the pillow cost me less than $10.00 to make!

Love it! Wanted to tell you--I got my stencil I won from your blog! So excited! They also sent me a tool kit with the level and roller and brush. So nice of them. That was a wonderful prize. I am so lucky I won!
