Fab Fabric Friday

A blast of color and texture!  This collection of pillows is for an otherwise neutral-toned master bedroom. 
The embroidered flowers remind me of candied citrus slices.
Light from five windows (3 singles, 1 double, and 1 triple) on three sides of the bedroom is filtered with delicately embroidered sheer shades lined with batiste.

The light is caught and reflected onto the colorful bedding pillows by solid glass beads.  White fabric tubing disguises the weight bar inside the pocket.

For inside mounted shades, top lip cord helps fill in any gaps between the shade and the window frame.

Before sewing the woven braid frame to the yellow velvet pillow, first I "basted" it with double-sided adhesive tape to keep it from creeping.  After one row of stitching is complete, the tape can be removed.
