    Sorry to be so late with this post, but I LOVE your idea of adding a piece of coordinating fabric to your curtains!!! Using buttons sounds terrific and I may 'steal' your idea!!!

    Possibilities has a couple of books out - Toppers and Toppers II that have 'toppers' for your bed pillows. In some of the pics they used them on the back of couches.

    I have thought of this same idea for lots of home dec...you could also use snap tape if the fabric was a bit stiffened - just the decorative add-on fabric.

    Thank you for sharing. The tutorial from the crooked nickel is great. Will have to try this soon.

    Rob Peter to Pay Paul Quilt Runner

    I finished this Quilt Runner (aka, Bed Runner) for my Neice's wedding in October
    (final threads snipped 2 days before it flew to Colorado Springs!)

    Not only did this combine 2 pretty "dotted" fabrics, I found the backing fabric "after the fact" and bought all they
    had left. When I was laying out the top, I realized I needed not quite a half yard more! So I hit the "stash" and
    did a little creative piecing. Then onto the Flynn quilt frame and started my FIRST Free-Motion Quilting project.

    I am either Brave or Crazy or some combination of both! I can see the boo-boo's, but I'm still proud of the
    finished product.

    Finished size, approx. 38" x 88" (yes, it's bigger than my plan!)
