Weekend Woes

This weekend I would really like to knock some projects off my list. The chances of this are slim.
Instead....

I am going to investigate a new project, getting an Hermes scarf made into a pillow. Holy wow.

(I have a couple that my grandma gave me that might lend themselves to this perfectly...)

Any projects you are tackling this weekend? Come on. Inspire me.

  1. I am a new follower...love your blog! The Hermes scarf project sounds amazing. I have also seen them framed. Wouldn't it look beautiful over a couch? The colors and patterns are always to die for. I just made a cute bulletin board for the area over my desk, with leftover Lulu DK fabric. Turned out really nicely. Happy weekend!

  2. I look forward to seeing and hearing how it comes out. I have two and one has a paint stain on it so I have always thought it would make an awesome pillow. Hope you will share if you are successful!

  11. I was having this EXACT thought yesterday! If you figure out a good way to do it, help a girl out. I'm a tiny bit terrified of ruining a Hermes scarf with a DIY hack job!

  15. I wear all my Herme scarfs but I do think that when they become aged/I get bored of them, that's an awesome alternative! I'd love to see how they turn out.

  16. Lovee the equestrian vibe of that room! I have a list a mile long to accomplish this weekend, but instead, will most likely go kayaking and catch up on the Bachelorette and maybe make home made pasta. I already accomplished one boring project this week.. my closet, so quota filled! Please share if you do in fact get the pillow made!
