Ruffles and more Ruffles

The always popular ruffles turned out great on my latest project! My client bought a matelasse coverlet/sham set then had me add the ruffles and a custom monogram. I loved the way it turned out.

She found this great footstool made of burlap and linen and wanted a ruffle added to that as well.

We finished off the bedding with two cute ruffled pillows, I have seen them in magazines and all over the internet. The pillows were so fun to make and complimented the decor. I can't wait to make more of these.

My client's daughter was so happy with her room that she wanted to write me her own check. I thought it was so cute. Here is a picture of the check. I can tell she really liked the ruffles. Look at all those zeroes!

Drop Cloth Office Chair Slipcover

I was very excited when I received an email from professional writer Kathryn Bechen of Kathryn Bechen Ink asking for an office chair slipcover. I had recently become friends with her on facebook after viewing her blog and website. She writes for one of my favorite magazines "Cottage Style".

Kathryn purchased a drop cloth at Home Depot and washed it several times. The fabric was very soft and had a great texture. She asked for an exact copy of a slipcover she currently had on the chair.

Here is the link to Kathryn's blog post where she shows her newly decorated home office.
