Everythings coming up Roses, Lace and Ribbons...

So much to do and so little time!!! I finished this little roll pillow yesterday...

She was fun to make... The rose center I downloaded from my computer and printed it onto transfer fabric... It's like a course muslin. I was a little anxious about how that would work but It went quite smoothly. Then I added all the other fabrics, lace and ribbons...

I love the fabrics, so soft and romantic...

Once the sewing was done I just stuffed it with Fiberfill and tied the ends together with a mix of ribbons...

I am happy with how it turned out... Hope your Day is Rosey!!!!! I am off for a Golf... xoxo~Kathy.


  1. Kathy, you are one talented lady! I love the pillow, and it looks so pretty in the wicker rocking chair.

    I peeked at your daughter's website. Her photography is beautiful. I don't know if I'll ever be brave enough to take "people" photos, but she does a fabulous job. :)

    Have a great 4th of July weekend!


  2. The pillow is stunning. I love the stripes with the flowers, and the ribbons and lace are such a beautiful finishing touch. I didn't know there was transfer fabric. It's gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  3. girl...that is so pretty!!! hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  4. Kathy, this is such a sweet pillow!

    I was wondering, is the rose design on the center fabric actually a photo that you transferred to fabric? It is so pretty.

  5. What a beautiful pillow you created! Great idea to print from the computer, I've never thought about that before!


  6. Hi Marsha... Yes, to your question about the center rose print on the pillow.I found the print on the computer and fell in love with it. Then I downloaded it into "My Pictures". Then I printed it from my computer onto a special fabric that goes through your printer. (I believe I purchased it at Michaels...)It's made spacifically for traveling through your printer without getting jammed. It worked Pretty well!!! Just have to make sure you only put one sheet at a time in your printer. Hope that was helpful, xox~Kathy

  7. Kathy, Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comment. Of course I had to check yours out right darling!! Love your pretty pillow. I've wanted to try the fabric printing and now that you proved it works, I am inspired to go for it. Have a great 4th of July and hope you stop by my blog again soon.

  8. Hi Kathy,
    Great pillows, and I really liked your tablescape! Thank you for the nice comment on Affordable Accoutrements. I'd love to see some of your mixed media projects with the dried roses.

    Let's visit each other again soon!


  9. Oh Kathy, your pillow is GORGEOUS!!! So many beautiful details and it looks perfect in your chair too ~ I have some of those fabric sheets that I bought from too!! Wishing you a wonderful fourth sweet friend, xxoo, Dawn

  10. What a pretty finish. Love the embroidered one with the birdhouse. Did you do that one also?
    Nice festive table all ready for the big celebration. We are off to our little town's parade this morning.
    All day yesterday was spent with our ukulele band putting on our Hawaiian show and lots of hula. I was wiped out when I returned late afternoon yesterday.
    Hope you had fun at Golf...
    ps thanks for sweet comment about my Daddy.

  11. Thanks Candy for stopping by on this busy weekend!!! Yes I did make the embroidered pillow with the birdhouse and birds, (A Long Time ago), glad you enjoyed them... We are busy with the grands today and are planning fireworks tonight, Have a great weekend my Ukuele Friend, xoxo~Kathy...

  14. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance!

    Enjoyed looking over your creativity on your blog. The pillows are fabulous! I especially love the one with embroidered birds, as I made something like this decades ago to cover our pet parakeet's cage at night. It brought back a lot of great memories for me!

    I'm so glad you liked my first silver project, and I appreciate the encouragement! I really like your necklace pictured in the sidebar, very creative and fun! I hope to learn some lampwork, too. I'll visit again!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
