My new obsession...Osnaburg fabric. I've dubbed it the "poor man's linen."
It's lovely, isn't it? With it's nubby, imperfect, rough goodness. I want to use it for everything now and at $3.99/yard, I can, because it's so affordable! I got a few yards at Michael's and I have a few projects in mind.
I made this "Osnaburg" linen pin board for my mom. I plan on making another one for our kitchen, but I just haven't found the time, yet.
I used it to make euro shams for our guest bedroom. I just sewed the sides together to make the pillow, and then made cute little ties out of some extra lengths of fabric to tie them closed.
Next, I think I am going to make pillows with it for our family room. I love the idea of using the neutral fabric as a backdrop to other colorful pillows that can be easily changed to suit my mood. And according to Justin, my mood changes often, so I may be switching pillows out a lot.
