COLORFUL PILLOWS

 The new bedding for my client's 14 year old daughter.  She was thrilled.  Actually, they both were.  The fabric that is draped around the headboard is supposed to be the purple paisley, but I forgot to bring it when I delivered the pillows and draperies.
 The 26" x 26" Euro squares are reversible.  The purple stripe is, technically, the back and the large window pane check is the front.
 The round pillow also has the purple stripe on the other side.  And you can't really tell, but the welting is a green and white gingham.
 Lots of color!
I love making pillows and this was one of the jobs where my client said,  "Here are some fabrics and any that you might have in your own stash that would coordinate, feel free to use those, too.  I trust you."  The draperies are made from the purple paisley, but are not installed yet.  My client's daughter was so happy and that makes me happy.

Update on my blue hair:
Thanks for all your suggestions.  I ended up using hairspray.  Tristan's method would have required that I leave the island and I decided to give Lisa Michelle's method a try first.  Of course, it's not like I had hair spray, so I went and got a can and I am pleased to say that most of it is out.

The pillows are SO cute. You must have really had the trust of the client if she let you use some of your own fabrics. I love paisley. And have you noticed that people are pillow crazy lately?

Beautiful pillows, Tamerie! But I thought that blue streak in your hair was pretty hot too! I enjoyed our lunch yesterday. Let's get together again soon!
