Repurposed Curtains into Fall Throw Pillows-Int’l Bloggers Club
I can’t believe it’s already been a month since my friends and I got together for Int’l Bloggers Club!! Last month we posted about Back to School projects. This month we have some extra exciting news!! We have another friend joining us from South Africa, Michelle from A Crafty Mix Blog. In South Africa, they’re actually in Spring, while we’re in the Fall season, how neat is that?! Be sure to visit Michelle’s blog, and see her Spring project, as well as the other ladies’ Fall projects.
As part of our living room remodel, I made curtains for the windows out of drop cloth. The drop cloth curtains were hanging in our living room for a few months, but I decided to change them out for plain white curtains. I ended up having yards and yards of drop cloth that were no longer going to be used as curtains, so I decided to make some pillows with the fabric.
Here’s my attempt at making an envelope pillow. Keep in mind I’m not an expert seamstress. I used the tutorial here at Love Grows Wild.
I made 2 pillows out of some of the drop cloth, with plenty of fabric leftover. Maybe I’ll make some Christmas pillows, as well as Valentine’s, Easter, and Summer. I literally have tons of drop cloth leftover!
I stenciled my pumpkin design on one of them. The free JPEG cut file can be found here with a collection of other JPEG cut files I have designed. I have also posted the pumpkin cut file at the bottom of this post. It is for personal use only please.
I made this Gather stencil using my Cricut Machine using the font Tingler Script and I purchased this beautiful wreath embellishment from this Creative Market Shop.
I love the warm and vibrant colors of fall! What about you?
