Blue and White Ticking (Let Me Count the Ways!)

What would you do, if you had a couple of yards of fabric left over from a project?


20120825-155523.jpg I dare say that most of us would neatly tuck that extra fabric into some free cupboard space.

Not me.

I have come up with 50 ways (nearly), to use blue and white ticking.

First and foremost on everyone’s must-have list, are blue-and-white ticking tassels!

You do have your blue and white ticking pinwheel, don’t you?

And no one’s life is quite complete, without a blue and white sachet.

And since more is never enough, one must wrap their lavender in blue and white.

Now, if you have young children at home, forget about doing all of this stuff! You have much more important things to concern yourself with! I, on the other hand, do not.

And, no, this post has not been sponsored by the Blue and White Ticking Support Group Association, but donations are always appreciated!

    • You know, Shirley, I bought these two beautiful pillows at an estate sale! The house was on the river and had an incredible view! I wouldnt normally buy a pillow that was in someone else’s home, but these were enough to make me break my rule! 🙂

  9. OMG do I LOVE those bench cushions. I do love blue and white ticking too. I have some red and white ticking ready to go into the back of my frenchy hutches. I don’t have little kids at home anymore, but I have little grand babies. Just as good and maybe better. 🙂 xxoo
