Pillow Bling

Trimmy, trim, trims!
One of the absolute most fun parts of making pillows is picking out the trim, or as some designer's call it, the "bling".
I mean trims are fun, really fun. You can't deny it. 
I'm guilty of self-welting quite a bit, but honestly that's usually because of budget restrictions.
Trims, like cord, fringe, tapes, etc. can be put on more than just pillows and drapery: Think lamp shades, bed skirts, duvets, headboards, sofas, chairs, and heck why not dining chairs?
Have fun with it!

On a budget?
Buy simple shams or shades at your favorite home store, I love TJ Maxx and Home Goods.
Order some trim or even check out your local craft supply store (Beverly's, Michael's, etc.) and whip out the handy-dandy glue gun or stitch them on yourself!

Here's an easy How-To I just googled, I'm sure there are plenty out there:

My favorite source for trims is Samuel and Sons, they are to the trade only, so contact me for pricing and ordering.

Have fun with it!
