Good Turn Out

It has been over a year now since I took a sewing class. I made three throw pillows and hemmed a pair of pants. The last thing I did before the class ended was cut a piece of Schumacher’s Chenonceau (Fawn) in preparation to make a long rectangular pillow. I successfully cut it but thats where that project ended and the fabric has been stowed in my closet since then.

As I was cleaning out my closet a few weeks ago I came across the fabric and decided that it was time to do something. So I took it to Renee’s Fabrics. They have tons of suzani and ikat prints coming in soon and they have the linen bird fabric that keeps popping everywhere like on Jamie’s ottoman.

Surprisingly Renee’s whipped up my pillow in one day. I think it looks great on the sofa!

Oh and excuse the Petrie my dog ruined the upholstery, so much for that noise Crate & Barrel is making about stain resistance. I plan to have it covered in dark brown velvet one of these days.

This task was No. 32 on the Punch List.

  • I was getting excited because I thought you were gonna say you sewed the rectangular pillow. Bummer. But I like it!

  • I love that fabric and the pillow looks amazing on your sofa! I just found your blog and am going to bookmark it, you have such great taste!

  • psssst–Room and Board have a slipcover set for one of their sofas that fit the Petrie–not cheap, but far easier than sewing yr own and far, far easier to clean…

  • Hey Sarah!
    The pillow looks great in your home!

    Did you ever get your picture ledge filled up with selections on that right wall?

    Love and misses,
