My daughter M and I were talking about re-doing her bathroom this winter, and she suggested black and white paisley. I was searching for some black and white paisley wall paper - when I thought about designing my own applique pattern to make paisleys with some of my old scraps of fabric from my overflowing stash.
I also used some left over ric rac pieces and some mismatched buttons...
And I finished it off with some left over ball fringe...
And the back is a cute pink and white cotton gingham (you can't find cotton gingham anymore)!
I even had a pillow form the right size to fit (it is a little big, but just don't look too close at the gap in the buttons on the back)!
I am pretty happy with how it turned out, and it cost me nothing but some time designing and redesigning the paisleys!
I have another creation that looks completely different using the same paisley patterns that I will show you tomorrow!
