Shabby French Throw Pillows

 No. 30
I have been having fun at the sewing machine,
making these Shabby French Pillows.

I want to send out a huge
"Thank You"
The Graphic Fairy
(these lovely Paris graphics made my pillows turn out so delightfully charming)


No. 31
Audrey Hepburn, the Eiffel Tower
& dainty little white buttons. 

The front of these two pillows is done in a quilted fabric of white with white stitching.

The back closure is done with two little bows.


Do you have a sofa or bed 
that these would look pretty on?

A pretty throw pillow can be to a bed, 
chair or sofa . . .
What a cherry is to the top 
of an ice cream sundae.

Thanks for stopping in . . .
and please don't go without leaving a comment.
I truly enjoy hearing what to have to say 
about my inventory and about my 
dream of having my own booth.

Have an incredibly  wonderful day,
