Passion for Pink Pillows...Happy Pink Saturday!

Just when I thought I cleared my calendar for Pink Saturday blog browsing, there's ALWAYS SOMETHING that gets wiggled in! My hubs and I have a furniture delivery in the morning, BUT I'll be back in the afternoon and a "Pink Saturday browsing" I will go, hope to visit all of, Happy (day early) Pink Saturday!

I have a few pillows to share with you that I made using pretty pinks! My husband is in the process of creating my SHOPPE on my website...SO...I've been busy in my workroom sewing away for the big grand opening want to have a special blog "GIVE AWAY" coming up very soon, so keep checking back!psssstt..I'm working on taking better inside pictures with my new camera too, lol! ( :

LOVE LOVE LOVE making patchwork pillows with all kinds of sweet vintage snippets and bauble adornments!

Pretty sweet back too!

Fun and FRILLY, my "Scrappy Cottage" pillow, everything but the kitchen sink! I make the edge using looped laces, ribbons, white ric-rac and vintage hem tape..if it can be looped, it will be on there!

I found this vintage pillowcase cotton at a local estate sale, still wrapped in plastic, never opened. I made two standard size bed pillows, I've only taken a pic of one...notice how much I like to use this sweet pink tiny rose fabric by Rachel Ashwell, YUMMMMMM!

At the same estates sale, I found an UNOPENED, still in the manufactures plastic bag,SWEET pillowcases! I made them into pillow sham covers, there are two, standard/possibly queen, they were a bit large in size. More Rachel Ashwell fabric was added as an inside peek-a-boo ruffle and I put button holes so the pink ribbon can be threaded through securing the pillow inside.

I have more handmade suprises in store during the week....Have a FANTASTIC Pink Saturday, God bless!
