Peek-A-Boo Valance #1

This is a peek-a-boo valance which includes a contrasting fabric in between the scallops of the main fabric. Because this fabric was a medium weight I chose to not include cord in the piping, which I feel would have made it too stiff. So I still get the coordinating look that I wanted without the add'l fullness.

Scalloped Piped Valance #1

Here's an example of a scalloped, piped valance. This was a lightweight fabric so I included cord in the piping to add some body.

48" Square Tablecloth with border

This was my last sewing project for this weekend. Again, using a Tommy Bahama indoor/outdoor fabric I've constructed a square tablecloth with a coordinating border.

Tommy Bahama Pillow

This was a fun project. This pillow uses indoor/outdoor fabric by Tommy Bahama. It is an 18" square pillow with coordinating piping. There is a zipper back. I've also included a couple pics of some ideas I want to try to embellish the pillow.

Placemat Idea

This is an idea for a placemat using two coordinating indoor/outdoor fabrics, grommets and a square knot for design. To keep the cost down I used a solid fabric for the back as opposed to the more expensive Waverly fabric.
