Bed Head

My oldest is headed to college next week.

Don't you think she needs a sham

to go with her new quilt & duvet?

I've never made a pillow sham.

But this little book made it super easy =

good step by step directions & measurements.

And I got to use my polka dot buttons on the back!The sham is bold;

it's a little wild & crazy.

But isn't that what

college is?

I liked working with this Tea Garden home dec fabric so much...

I made an ironing board cover for my new sewing room!

College-bound daughter has been away all summer;

she comes home Saturday!

Wonder what she'll think of her room --

aka - My New Sewing Space.

I think she and Olivia (the pistachio green sewing table)

are going to get along just great.

I did keep her bed,

just in case you were wondering.


  1. Oh it's lovely! I love how everything coordinates! I hope she likes it!

  2. I love the sham...and the fabric you used....I'm glad to hear you did keep her bed...LOL...

  3. I love it!!! Oh my goodness, it is adorable. Thank you so much! :D

  4. Oh...you have such creative taste....I just love it.

  5. You know, I have that book. Maybe I should whip up something this cute, too! LOL. Love the new ironing board cover...makes you feel like actually ironing, doesn't it?

  6. I totally have bedhead today and I don't want to do anything about it. Maybe I need new shams.

    She'll have the cutest dorm room ever.

  7. So cute! Perfect for college!

  8. My daughter got a new place this year and using an old couch, so I thought I would make her some nice pillows to brighten it up.


  9. The pillow sham is great! You are right...just the right thing for college!

Now, I've posted over here from Madame Samm's and I need to know what amount of fabric you have left of what she's making her sewing machine cover from .... the exact materials ... special project and love those choices :) Thank you!!
