Velvet Pillow in Smoke Blue

Christmas '13 (2)

You may have figured this about me but I have this thing for fabric.

I love fabric. And velvet is one of my favorites.

Several months ago, at a local fabric store, I noticed a gorgeous slate blue/smoke blue/slightly teal if-you-hold-it-the-right-way/or maybe grayish blue velvet.

I fell in love.

But since I had no specific project or client in mind for this lovely velvet, I passed it by.

Until I found the remnant. The 1/2 price remnant.

And then it didn’t matter if there was no project in mind. It was coming home with me.

Several weeks later, after stewing for a while over “what would I make”,  I decided on a simple queen size pillow with a tiny self-flange and ruffled corners.

My lovely new slate/smoke/tealish/maybe gray blue pillow found it’s home in the middle of my bed.

The perfect addition to make my summery bed look at bit more like winter.
