Mine was crazy busy with lots of visiting, eating and chocolate! Oh my goodness, way too much chocolate!!!
I managed to whip up a little pillow however! The local fabric/craft store had 40per cent off all fabrics, so I stocked up on my current faves; velvet, silk and rachel ashwell prints!
I used the velvet and some silk dupion to make this;
(i still have my table dressed from easter sunday!! pretty pears!)
obviously, the design was inspired by this lovely rachel ashwell cushion...
I did think of using a red or a pink but really wanted to try the turquoise first. I got the crown graphic from the Graphics Fairy and used a special art transfer paper. Its not the normal tshirt transfer stuff... it gives a much better finish, not so glossy and it wont crack and peel. I can get the name of it if anyone is interested....
Love how everything looks like its floating on the ghost chairs!
I didnt think the transfer would work onto velvet, but it worked a treat in the end.
the pillow i used is slightly too long so it looks overstuffed! will have to get to ikea as they do feather cushion inserts quite cheap and feel great inside velvet pillow covers!
My fabric store has 40per cent off for the rest of today also, so I am going to get some sheeting and more velvet i think!!!
have a fabulous monday everyone!!!
