's been a while since I started noticing staining on the pillow covers in the living room. I love the covers I've sewn, but the stains just won't come out, and the repair job on one of them isn't very attractive. It's time for new covers.

 I hate buying fabrics full price. Usually I find something to make over from the thrift store. I love to find a curtain, because it's usually a few yards of fabric for just a few dollars.

 Home decorator fabrics are so expensive! I could use a coupon, or I could design my own. I've kept the scraps of canvas drop cloth left over from making slipcovers for the couch and loveseat. There really isn't much left, but I've managed to get a couple of projects out of it.





 Once the paint was dry, I made some welting with some red and white ticking and sewed the pillow cover. I love how it turned out, and will certainly be making more.

Beautifully done, and I especially like the striped welting. Ticking is just one of those inherently attractive materials, isn't it?

Thank you Wulf, Yes. I agree. i love how it can look good in a French country or Americana style. And it's not overly romantic like toile.
