Recyling an Old Drapery Panel . . . .
Did you every have a pair of draperies that you grew tired of, took down, but hated to part with? Well, that's what happened with this pair. I loved the color, (actually a little more blue-green than my camera shows,) but wanted to change the style of window coverings. So I packed them away, and just couldn't discard them. They are a nice washable, polyester fabric, looking very much like slubbed silk. Too good to just toss.
Well, everything old is new again, right? This color is now very hot, so I decided to make some new throw pillows for my couch. Checked through all of my embroidery designs, and came up with this one, from Anita Goodesigns. It's perfect.
Still in my embroidery hoop, I have a couple of smaller designs to add to fill it out. When that's finished, I'll show you my progress on putting it all together.
Wish me luck - it's been awhile since I've made pillows with cording!!
