12 Days of Valentine's Day: Day 8


On this 8th day of Valentine's Day, consider adding a few pretty touches to your bedroom. I love pretty sheets, blankets and quilts and enjoy putting together combinations that look inviting.

This week I used iron-on rick rack trim (in pink) to embellish a plain white pillow case. It couldn't be easier - first buy some iron-on trim-by-the-yard (1.5 yards), iron the pillowcase to warm up the fabric, lay the rick rack on the pillowcase and iron (pressing and lifting - no steam) until it adheres.

I just love how this looks. Seeing my valentine-inspired bed makes me want to buy more pink rick rack. I could easily make matching handtowels for the adjoining bath.

Day 8: Do something to dress up your bed. Flip the comforter, add some pillows, buy pink pillow cases. Climb into a cozy bed and have sweet dreams of your valentine.

I know! I was tickled when I realized it was iron-on. It is in the trim-by-the-yard at Joann Fabrics. So glad you like it!
