I've been making my ruffled muslin pillows trimmed with lace, buttons and rosettes for my Etsy shop for awhile, and I decided to try some burlap for the neat contrast between it's rough weave and the muslin's softness. So here is my first design. I like it alot.
I put the wide ruffle on first by sewing it down the middle, but it needed something more, so I added the vintage lace down both sides. Hmmm, I tried a row of buttons down the middle but it needed a little something something. You know me, I'll put a rosette on anything! So after placing three muslin rosettes I added two more of satin ribbon and then just a few mixed buttons for accent. Ooh, I really like it!
I had it on my couch and I LOVE the combo of soft and rugged with these two fabrics! Can't wait to make more of these! I decided to post it in my Etsy shop, see if anyone else liked this combo too.
And this pillow has SOLD! Looks like I'll be adding burlap and muslin pillows as a regular item to my shop. I just love when a design comes together like this and looks so good. Now I have more fundage to buy more burlap, it's a win win! There's a button to my Etsy shop on my sidebar. I'm having a FREE SHIPPING sale on any TWO of my ruffled muslin pillows, go check it out!
