Show and Tell Monday




Here again another Monday has rolled around. I was able to finish this set of Southern Bell Pillowcases. So there are two of these sets on my website right now.


Even though I have posted pictures of them in a previous post, I thought I would post again along with some suggestions on how to decorate with them.


Decorating Ideas:

Give one to 2 different grandchildren
Put one each on a set of twin beds
Take apart and use as curtains
Layer your bed with lots of pillows of different Southern Belles
Use as a chair back cover
Make a child's dress out of the pillowcases

Hi Janet!

I just love those Southern ladies! You really did a beautiful job. And I also love the ideas you listed. I think making a dress out of the pillowcases is a wonderful idea!

I was just picturing a Southern lady on towels or at the ends of a table cloth. So many wonderful things you can do with that beautiful embroidery.
Thanks for sharing and hope you have a happy week!
