Look what I made!

So, last week I shared with you my nursery plan and it included this gorgeous Schumacher Chiang Mai fabric:

Unfortunately, it's $250 per yard.  (Yes, you read that right.)  I found a seller on Etsy who makes small lumbar pillows out of this fabric for $62 (which, when compared to $250, is great!), but I still didn't really want to spend $62 on a small accent pillow.

I scoured various fabric stores and didn't really find anything that fit the bill.  I was looking for something colorful to tie in the blues of the nursery and bring in other colors.  Then I remembered the fabric that I used to recover our dining room chairs last year.  Jackpot.  I bought some light blue pom-pom trim and a small 14"x18" pillow and made my own.

Ta da!

It's obviously not the same as the Chiang Mai, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Oh, and the rocking chair?  The blue and white striped cushion looks far better in photos than it does in person, so those are getting redone completely in this fabric:

Haven't ordered the fabric yet, but I'm hoping to this weekend.

Speaking of which, it's Friday!  Have a great weekend!
