Robin Egg Blues

This week has just whizzed by! I thought I would take a minute to show you some things I did get done this week. One project I did just for me was to make some drop cloth pillows. They are so cute and economical to make. The drop clothes were on sale for $7.00. I washed them twice and used fabric softener and they turned out softer then I thought. I used fabric paint on them and made the stencil out of card stock. I made the little one by simply ripping a piece and ruffling it. I didn't even hem the edges of ruffle to keep it simple and I like the look of it with unfinished edges.

Please ignore that the ruffle looks crooked. Wow the things you notice in pics! LOL

I sewed them as pillow covers so I could wash as needed.

The other thing I got done was another table and chair set. This is a smaller set that I think would be really adorable in a vintage or cottage style kitchen
 I painted it this robin egg blue. Shabbied it up a lot! Then added the graphic to top and recovered the chairs with my new favorite new fabric drop cloth. I hope to sale it fast before I decide to keep it! Have a super weekend! Traci
