stripes to solids

I am one of the biggest fans of stripes, but let a few too many into my life. (my living room to be exact.) The room had striped pillows, a striped throw and a striped chair. After finding the perfect fabrics the makeover began! I had a great old oxford shirt with a hole in it and a pile of chambray scraps and together these blues fit the bill. I removed the original pillow cases and used them as a guide for the new ones. I pieced the scraps together like a puzzle flipping one sleeve this way and one sleeve that way, a front placket here and a collar there. Below is a snap shot of the project!
