Busy, busy, busy................

I finally got my hands on some Tim Holtz fabric.  There is a little quilting shop in this town but they didn't carry it, nor did Joann's so I had to go to Ft. Collins, CO (about 45 miles south) to a little place called Loopy Ewe.  It's a bit expensive but I do really like the designs. 

I found a little foot stool at a garage sale a while back and wanted to recover it with the Tim Holtz fabric.  I used some foam that I found stashed in one of my mother's closets.  I found some iron interfacing to stiffen the fabric a little. I removed all the legs and the old fabric and covered it right up.  So cute!

Had a little fabric left so I made a little pillow from the same fabric.  It actually is a pillow cover so I can take it off and wash it.  I made the actual pillow out of muslin and then put the pillow cover on it.  I found some cute trim at Walmart so added that to the sides. 

They both turned out so cute.  They will match my couch and loveseat really well.  I think I might make some curtains out of the same fabric when I get in to my new place.

See what you think!!

So anyway, I look forward to decorating my new living room with these fabrics as soon as I can get moved.  I have a permanent full time job now so it won't be long.

Hope you are enjoying your summer!
