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.
