Bellagio Pillows

Hello everyone,
I've seriously neglected this blog for the past couple of weeks.  Things have been really busy here as I've been getting patterns finalized for Market.  I'm not actually going this time but the patterns are being sent to distributors in time for the show.  I have four new designs as well as four magazine patterns that are being republished.  More on that later...
Speaking of Market, while I was there in the spring the folks at Belagio Enterprises invited me over to their booth to select some fantastic trim to match some of my collection.  They graciously shipped me a couple of yards of each after Market.  It is so fun to combine these fancy trims with patchwork for home decor items.  You don't need a lot to make projects really special.  Belagio Enterprises makes some fanastic pom-pom trim that I used with Swiss Chocolate and Ambrosia...



The trim with the pom-poms on one side allows for easy mitering...

The flat trim is perfect for sewing along seams...

I love the blue buttons on the back!

Lots of circles on these!





I used two types of ribbon trim with Veranda.


The ribbon that is pleated on one side is perfect for mitered corners...

The ribbon pleated on both sides is so pretty sewn down the pillow along the main seams....


I love all the trims, but the white ribbons might be my favorites because they are so versatile.






Complimentary tutorial coming soon!  Happy sewing!

Amanda

The trims are great and they look like they were made for your collection. The website for Bellagio requires a passsword - how do I find these trims to purchase?

I love the way the trims pick up on the colors in your fabrics! They really add another dimension to the pillows, and the pillows would have been awesome even without them. Now they are over the top cute! Can't wait to see the tutorial!
