So I have been sewing like a little maniac (not perfectly but…) and have gone ruffle crazy. I have sewn these shabby looking shams for the pillows on Aliah’s bed. I haven’t totally decided if I love them yet or not design wise. I added a ruffle to only one end of the pillow as well as tie closures on the end.
( I plan to share a “how to” for making these pillows)
I left the ends frayed and unfinished but sewed along the edge of the fraying in order to not allow it to fray too much.
While I like these as background pillows, they do feel to me as though they need something … maybe large wooden buttons along the seam of the ruffle? Satin cream colored wide ribbon? … Any suggestions welcome! I am making more pillows that will have the ruffle all the way around to place in front of these ones so I’m not sure if I should add more detail to these ones or not. I guess they just feel odd on their own right now.
They are a soft place to fall anyways :)

I thought that it would fit perfect into this glam room with it’s vintage ruffles around the shade.
The small framed verse was a baby shower gift many years ago from a dear friend and of course … no drinks allowed on the nightstand unless it is sitting on that pinwheel crystal coaster!
Well … Back to work! I hope you are having a great week so far!
Have a great day!
