Introducing Free Pillow Friday

(Okay, I realize it is Thursday night, not Friday, but I’m going to be busy all day tomorrow)

So I’m starting this new thing that I’m kind of excited about….giving away free pillow covers. If you are not into fabric or interior decor this will be distinctly unexciting, but if you happen to run a blog called “Fabrictherapy”…very exciting.

Last winter I stocked up on gorgeous (mostly designer) fabric and made dozens of pillows to sell at an artisan market. It turns out that pillow covers are not a big seller at these kinds of venues, so I have oodles of lovely pillows sitting lonely in a bag. Since it is a sunk cost, I’d much rather give these beauties away than have them gather dust.

I’m starting off with one of my faves, Ming Dragon, created by Robert Allen for Dwell Studio. I love, love this pattern and the variety of colours it comes in. It looks good in so many different applications:

Mid century mod chair upholstered in Ming Dragon in Persimmon.

Drapery in Ming Dragon aquatint.

For this give away I will be mailing the winner two 20 by 20 inch pillow covers (inserts not included) in Ming Dragon Admiral, a total value of over $70. All you have to do is post a comment on what you would like to see more of on Fabrictherapy.ca.

If you happen to win or just love the look of the fabric, Dwell Studio has gorgeous coordinates and there are lots of stores on Etsy where you can have coordinating pillows custom made:

I have a great variety of fabric, so if Ming dragon ain’t your thing, come back next Friday!

PS. I’ve never set up a give away on my blog before so please let me know if it doesn’t work for you! Contest begins at midnight and runs for a week. Check next Friday to see if you are a winner!

  1. Heather, these are beautiful! I fear that if I won them I would have to buy a new couch…. oh well!

    I love, love, LOVE these pillow covers! You did a beautiful job on them! When I’m browsing blogs, I like to see inventive DIY hacks. I love to decorate, but like so many, I’m on a tight budget, so I’m always looking for things I can make myself. Thanks Heather!
