Fortuny pillow #1

The summer is flying by, and I've been distracted by some toile that Pierre Deux had on sale on their website. While I love beautiful things, I am a bargain hunter to the core, and love making my decorating dollar stretch. So instead of finishing the pillows, I have been working on making drapes by hand, as I love quality made drapes (and they're so easy to make!!)

Above is my first pillow newly made. I decided to make a tiny welt out of the trim fabric that is on the Fortuny edge. I will post more later as I am going back to the Calif. house to finish making all those drapes. I purchased over 210 yards of fabric. I'd better take my thimble!

I will post again in a week or 2, so you can see the drapery project.
