...that's what this photo's all about for me: figuring out how to trim all the cases... So much fun! With some, my first try at a trim makes me happy right away, while with others, it takes several trials of different yarns and motifs before the finished look feels just right to me.
Now, this colorful pile is a bit different than the previous pillowcase piles I've shared with you in that it is part of a bigger idea of mine, which is to put together a little bedding collection made up of a pillowcases, cushions, and blankets. I've been inspired by a sweet, girlie fabric print which I'm using as a starting point for this little bedding scheme and which I will eventually show you...
In recent years, I have put together a few collections for my friend's shop, Molly's Furniture Salad (which she has since sold and I no longer deal with, as I prefer to spend the little time I always seem to have on my online venture...), and have always had so much fun at it that I thought I would put another one together and try my hand at selling it in my Etsy shop. Initially, I was simply inspired by the sweet fabric I mentioned earlier and thought it would work nicely in Nico's room (who just turned 11 last week and really likes the fabric in question...), but then the idea grew and, as her room could use a bit of a facelift, why not design and make a little bedding collection around it, and then, well, why not just make a few more and list it all in my shop!?
So, in the next little while, I plan on sharing with you my progress with this bedding project as I go along; I have already started cutting some woolly fabrics to make a blanket which I will post about next.... Thanks for the visit and I hope you'll come back soon to see how my little bedding adventure is coming along!
