The Fabrics of my life

Posted on

Bliss Studio Pillows

I am so drawn to mix matching fabric patterns.  This craving to mix match was destined to be.  I never matched when I  dressed myself for Middle School.  I was “that girl”  that would wear faux Doc Martin boots with floral light blue baby doll dresses and probably had scrunched up hot pink socks to tie my outfit in.  I always had to explain my outfits, haa.  Thankfully that was me a decade ago.  All of that said… I am going to attempt to start sewing more pillows.  I love mix matching fabrics and pillows in our home. Once I have about 10 down I’ll put them on my up and coming Etsy shop.  Hopefully I’ll be able to find some cool menswear patters or some fun metallic fabric.  Everthing we own is mostly dark colors so in moving to Charleston, SC I jumped on the shabby sheek bandwagon and brought some color and texture into our apartment .  I even have a linen tapestry hanging and a dried hydrangea bouquet, from Mom’s garden, on our refurbished barn wood table. I’m mixing it up and trying new things!  So here’s to a hopeful fun adventure in sewing while watching Prison Break and anything Bravo.  What hobbies and shows are you taking on this fall?
