My Pretty Little Pillow

Continuing with my rosette obsession, I had a cute plaid decorative pillow that came with my bedding.  I also had two red pillow shams that I was no longer using...idea!  The red matched the bedding perfectly.  I had seen these cute pillows around and thought, "I could totally do that!"  So, here it is...my cute pillow that was boring and so-so, transformed into a pretty little pillow that's so ME!  :-)

First, the old pillow case.  It pulled apart so easily for the frayed (sp?) look I was going for.


I still have SO much left of this one pillow sham (and I have another).  Planning to dress up the lamp shades in the room, too.  And, here is the pillow all dolled up...I stitched the rosettes together, then stitched the top one to the pillow and hot glued them all to the pillow as well.  It's strictly for decoration, so I think it will hold up fine. 

On another note, I am thinking of new decor above the bed that incorporates my Project 52 for the week...off to post that now.  Have a great day!
