My other title choice was "Sham WOW!"
And although I am VERY proud
of my new pillow shams that I made,
I am not sure they are WOW worthy!
I am just so happy that this room
is moving along and almost finished.
I finished the pillow shams this week
using the same buffalo check fabric
that I used for the drapes.
I followed a few tutorials
that I found and tailored them to fit my needs.
I wanted to make two standard sized
flanged edge pillow shams.
StoneGable has a wonderful tutorial
for Euro Shams that I followed.
To get the right measurements
for a Standard Sized Sham,
I watched a YouTube video
by the Crafty Gemini that was awesome!
For my Shams, I ended up using
these measurements for each sham.
One piece 31" X 25" for the front
and two pieces 35" X 25"for the back.
Here is the back of the pillow sham.
The envelope closure makes it really easy
to insert the pillow.
I really love the way it is all coming together!
My sister commented
that it was a little "Girly".
Hmmmmmm, what do you think?
It never even really occurred to me
that it was "Girly".
No one has complained yet...
This is where we started...
A LOT has changed!
Painted Side Table,
New Lamp Shades,
Plates around the Mirror,
New Pillow Shams,
That's Quite a Bit of Change!
Until Next Time,
