Bee with Wreath and Rosette Pillows

I had the day off with my car in the shop so I used
this day to work on projects for my next craft fair.

You had to see my kitchen... sewing machine out, paint, tables, trunks, transfers, totes... you name it, I was working on it.

It looked a little like Santa's workshop.

I thought I had more time but just realized that the craft fair I signed up for is in 2 weeks....

Today I'm using scrap pieces of grain sack fabric for the 
front of the pillows and grey striped ticking fabric on the back.

Using a product called  Lesley Riley's Transfer Artist Paper I printed out a bee and wreath image from the Graphics Fairy

I added a cute little rusty bell to the center of the wreath.

Another pillow I made is the same as the bee/wreath 
pillow but without the bee. 

On this pillow I added a rosette with a pearl that matches the ticking fabric on the back of the pillow...

  1. Those pillows are so sweet! I am sure they will be a big hit at the craft fair :-)

    Happy Wednesday...


  2. Love that bee transfer. I've used the same one on pillows, too. I've also put the rosettes on pillows. Love your choice of contrasting fabric! xoKathleen

  3. Your pillows are so pretty! But then everything you make is.
