Summer Lovin'

The Blogging Business Artisans have a monthly challenge.  The July Challenge  by Jenny of A Bird in the Hand Art is about Summer Lovin'.  We were to do anything summer-related, love-related, GREASE (the movie) related.  I did a Grease post on Friday that you might like to see, but knew that I needed to come up with a completed project.

I finally came up with a new pillow cover design for my primitive wholesale line.  It sports quilted lace trimmed hearts on a muslin background.


I have embroidered some little french knots and a dashed outline stitch around the perimeter.  The muslin was then frayed for the primitive look and attached to a homespun fabric.  


The pillow cover is finished with buttons for easy closure from either end.

This pillow will be offered as part of my wholesale line for primitive ad country shops.  Wish me luck!
