Lovin French Graphics

I love this french image from Graphics Fairy.  It makes the prettiest pillows ever!

I just finished making this pillow and each time I make one they come out different.  I used a crochet lace and ribbon trim
and added a little button with ribbon.
I really like using the creamy colored burlap too.

I made this as a runner and showed it to you on an earlier post.
I then casually laid it over the back of this garden chair
and decided it would make a great chair cover too.
This graphic is also from Graphics Fairy.

The Graphics Fairy has wonderful images
that she offers to bloggers for use.
If you haven't visited her blog, then it's time to go
over and take a look.....warning.....it's addictive!

Ooolala! I love that pillow also! (And your table runner-- how did I miss that?)

I am so grateful to the Graphics Fairy. She had the best vintage clip art around.

Love the pillow and I did see that runner in your previous post, Sissie ~ beautiful and I bet it would make a nice little chair cover. Karen does have wonderful images. I'll bet that french one is one of her most popular. I've been seeing it all over blogland.

Hi Sissie..

I just love the freshness of your creations...the added lace trimming is so romantic, as is anything Paris themed!

Do you sell your pillows? If not, you should because they are wonderful!!!!

Have a great night..ciao.

Hi...pillow is just lovely! So glad I found your blog, can't wait to catch up!!

My name is PJ. said...

Soooooooo pretty Sissie! You know your stuff. I can't really sew a straight line, and I'm being truthful. I have made valances, but a valance can take me a day....and still not have a straight line of stitching.

Can you understand why I'm impressed with what you can do? You're very talented.

Jeannette said...

Morning Sissie! I'll bet Graphic Fairy is going to be floaded with visits after seeing this beauty! Very pretty and has a fresh french feel- I think because you used the light burlap instead of the dark I see everywhere! Got me thinking about burlap in a new way!lol Have a great day - Sincerely, Jeannette

Hi Sissie,
Your pillow is just gorgeous!!! What an amazing seamstress you are! I love the ruffled edge and the bits of trim you added. The runner is fab too! Thanks so much for linking this one up for "Brag Monday".

I LOVE your blog and those gorgeous pillows! Would you mind telling me where you get your burlap? Yours looks like a tighter weave than what I get at Hobby Lobby...
Thanks for sharing, I love the Graphics Fairy too!

Your pillow is beautiful. I saw you over on the Graphics Fairy...my new favorite place to hang out (I did the frame featured with your pillow today). Where did you find that great burlap? I am your newest follower.

Nan said...

Such a darling pillow! I love it! What did you use to print out the label design from the Graphics Fairy? Is that paper? Or iron-on transfer? It looks great! So, so beautiful!
