Be sure to check out Leslie's blog for other WHATCHA WORKING ON WEDNESDAY POSTS.
Yesterday I posted pictures of some fabric samples and scraps I bought from the thrift store for about 50 cents. The samples were from a design center. These fabrics were probably used to make curtains, upholster furniture or other home design ideas.
The Toile scraps were really small so I needed to make something really small from them! I made myself two coasters and a napkin. The coasters now occupy permanent spots, one on the computer desk and one on the table beside my chair. As for the napkin, I prefer the smaller size for myself. This size is also good to fold in half for another kind of coaster.
I like to have a coaster for my coffee early in the morning:
The other two sample pieces were called Waverly - Bassett Butterflies and Pisa. The one with butterflies is from the collection called "Language of the Gardens". The striped one is from the collection called "Bella Tuscany".
Since the two pieces were the exact same size and were of coordinating colors I used them to make a pillow with two different sides. Easy, peasy and instant (well almost) gratification.
And turned over to the other side, stripes:
The colors in my family room are more along the lines of fall. This is fine with me because I love the Fall season. The butterflies give it a little Spring/Summer touch, but still coordinates with the colors in the room.
I hope you have a great Wednesday!
