Mark it with a P!

Wednesday, September 28, 2011


Several years ago I made curtains and pillows for our den, here is one of the pillows.



Our den has somewhat of a English hunt scene theme by way of pictures, decorative plates and some of the fabrics.  

When I found this fabric I thought it was the perfect pattern for a pillow.  And once made, the perfect place for it was on this wing back chair upholstered in a hunt scene design.






Just love this hunting fella and the textures in this fabric, especially the herringbone pattern...




I really liked how the pillow turned out and have enjoyed having it in the den, but there was just a little something missing...


It needed a little something, hmmm...a monogram!





Yep, that's what it needed!  Much better, don't you think?






Love your sweet visits, please leave a comment so I'll know you did!
Blessings,
Cindy
