Trixie Pillows

Recently, while perusing Etsy, I came across this shop:

I instanly fell in love with a couple of her printed panels. It took forever, but I narrowed my purchase down to these two designs:

Look at that French script and butterflies! Absolutely gorgeous!

And the Union Jack - in un-traditional colours, but perfect for my living room!

After giving the panels a wash, I  turned them into pillows by creating envelope pillows using a natural coloured muslin as the backing.

I really like the Union Jack (I am partial to all things Britain!), but the butterfly pillow is just so colourful and eye-catching.  I am sure it won't be long before an order more stuff from this lovely Etsy shop!

Thanks for the visit!  Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.  And PLEASE become a FOLLOWER.  I'd love that!!
