Shabby Chic Bed Shams

 
I finished sewing my version of the Shabby Chic
Pillow Shams yesterday.
Now I know these to be authentically shabby because I (Kimberly) personally ripped every ruffle with my own two hands and then hand gathered each one!
I'm not sure if I told you what  fabric I used for my Shabby Chic Shams? 
It was cheap, white gauzy tea-towels!
 
 

Now on to the bedroom.
I spent a good deal of the day digging around in the basement in my totes looking for this particular lavender Scottish Shaw.
I love the colours in it and want to incorporate the deep lavender colour into our bedroom.
I also have a very pretty matching wool blanket which I will show you later.

Today the high here was 32F and the snow remains....

Thank you all for stopping by and visiting here at 
Camp and Cottage Living!

  2. And they turned out perfect! Do you know how to adjust he tension on your machine and it does all the gathering for you? That is how I do mine and it goes so quickly.

  5. Kimberly,

    I love the colors of your Scottish Shaw. You mentioned you have a blanket with the same colors. I bet the bed looks amazing dressed with these colors.
    Stay warm and have a blessed day.

  19. LOVE your shabby chic ruffled pillows. They turned out great. I was looking at the ones in Target today and I can bet that yours are even more well made at a fraction of the cost. I bet you could sell those like crazy, Kimberly.

    Your shawl is gorgeous- xo Diana

  20. Oh, I adore that Scottish Shaw! The colors are glorious! If you find it missing in the morning, you can be sure that Marty snuck in and swiped it, LOL.

  21. The pillows are just adorable! Good for you! Cannot believe all your snow. We have had to turn our air-conditioner back on the last couple of days -- ugh!

  22. Wow! Those are high fashion, girl! You did a great job but then you do on everything. I've been so "distracted" lately running from one project to another. This is such a busy time of year for me...and expensive! Glad to see someone is "calm and carrying on"! The throw is gorgeous and I can't wait to see the blanket and your plans for your bedroom!

  23. Love love the pillow covers Kimberly!! They are very sweet. I also love the purple throw. It's nice and bright for the winter and will come in handy I'm sure. It's going up to 9 and 10 the next 4 days here. Almost a heatwave. lol Enjoy your weekend.

  25. Kimberly-
    yay! you finished your pillows. They look every bit as good as I thought they would.
    I like the idea of lavender being incorporated. I'm sure it is going to be gorgeous. We're not as cold as you, and we don't have snow... but still chilly. I am loving it.
    Stay warm ~Pat

  27. I just LOVE the shams, and the lavender throw colors are beautiful! Looking forward to seeing that finished room. We are FINALLY going to have a temp drop today...we have been in the 90's the last few days, sigh. NOT very holiday feeling. But not suppose to get over 65 today which is cool to me, lol. Enjoy your week-end!

  29. How pretty! And the lavender is just the perfect accent!

    Miguel is in Skagway this weekend - he is doing research for his school project. Maybe he'll run into Elijah (although they have never met)! He is staying at the Catholic Church.
