Très Bon

Anybody that knows me, knows that I am lovin' all things Paris right now.

To visit Paris has always been on my bucket list 
and last year that dream was realized.

I have been working on my bedroom to add a little 'Paris' flare
and it's slowly coming together.

Last week I figured out how to print on fabric from graphics found online.
Now that opens a whole new world!!

I found these graphics on a website called, The Graphics Fairy. 
You really must check her out!! 

There are lots of vintage images that you can download to use in projects.

I have not washed these so am not sure how the printing will stand up.  
I plan to do a test piece in the next few days, 
and will report back to let you all know how it all turns out.

I decided I wanted to make these printings into pillows for my bed.
I'm tickled as to how great they turned out.

I was at IKEA the other day and they had 14" pillows that were priced at $1.99.
I decided to spring for them and use them as my pillow forms.
You can get more economical than that!!

I did find that the design from the pillow form showed through 
so I added an extra layer of fabric to the lighter areas.

I just did an easy envelope back on all three pillows.

Paris is always a good idea and if you haven't been,
treat yourself to a great vacation in a beautiful city!
