After Halloween I went to Goodwill, looking for prom dresses and such.
I wanted some satiny material to make Christmas stockings for the family. I figured that would be much cheaper than buying the material.
Well, I didn't find a decent dress, but I did find 2 gold brocade pillow shams. This is what I made.
Before (the stripes are on the back of the sham)
The initials are on 2 inch wood discs, painted gold with copper lettering.
I'm very happy with the way they turned out
