What A Sham! A Pair of Shams Actually...

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!

Hardwood Floors,
New Headboard,
Painted Side Table,
New Lamp Shades,
New Bedding,
New Chair,
New Drapes,
Plates around the Mirror,
New Pictures,
New Pillow Shams, 

That's Quite a Bit of Change!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

It's not too girly just beautiful. I especially like the floor mirror and wall plates. Nice job on the pillow shams.

I am in love with this room. I have a swatch of the buffalo plaid fabric and I am just waiting for the next calico corners sale to take the plunge. You did an awesome job on the shams. I will be featuring this tonight at my Swing into Spring party that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks.

I don't know about "girly", Cindy, but it does look gorgeous! I love the fabrics you've used and the colors. Very elegant looking!

I love it! Maybe somebody's sister is a wee bit jealous! I really love how you have the large mirror leaning against the wall with the plates around it.
