The Adventures of the 'Ruffled Pillow Shams" continues...

Remember my 'Pillow Making Marathon" a few weeks ago...

It started with the old drapes from my daughter, that I turned into beautiful pillow shams in this blog post: Bella Notte inspired pillow covers...

Then progressed to another set being made out of some old vintage, rubber back drapes in this blog post: Bella Notte inspired pillow shams "Part Deux" ~ with a crocheted edge...

Well, Diane at Lavender Dreams was inspired by the idea and created her own "Gorgeous" set for her bed out of a vintage tablecloth and lace...


They turned out "Lovely"...

She also made the cute little throw pillow on her bed too...


What a beautiful bed she created with a great 'repurposing' idea~!

I hope this inspires somebody else to create yet another gorgeous set, to keep the "Ruffled Pillow Sham" idea marching through blogland...!


  1. Love those shams with the long ruffles. Just beautiful!!

    I am your newest follower.


  2. Oh, I love seeing your gorgeous pillow shams! What a beautiful bed you have with everything so romantic! I updated my post to include the link to this post, too. I hope the idea catches on! It's definitely something anyone could make and the nice thing about them, they will each one be unique! Sweet hugs my friend!

  3. I am sending you one just like in the pic you have posted. The crocheted one.. there is only 1 for you though..

  4. They are gorgeous! When I finish our kitchen the master bedroom will be close behind and I definitely hope for something like this!

    1. Oh, you could make you some beautiful shams out of just about anything Cindy...
      Curtains, drapes, material, drop cloths, old linens...
      We definitely want to see what you come up with, when you get it done~!

  5. Very nice! I like it! I am a sucker for vintage linens, fabric and have tons of lace just hanging around. Just as soon as I get my sewing machine running, I'm gonna give this a try. I'm now a follower. Stopped by via Lavender Dreams.
