Okay, this one takes me back. Come Sail Away by Styx. This was recorded way back in 1977. That means I was singing this tune when I was in the 7th grade! Yes, I know, I'm old! My family lived near a lake resort and had a boat and we would go to the lake to waterski regularly in the summer. I remember listening to the Top 40 on that boat and soaking in the sun. Those were the days as they say! Okay, back to the song, Come Sail Away, and the inspiration for this set of pillow covers.
It is a set of three pillow covers. The top and bottoms are made from blue ticking and the center and pillow backs are canvas. I painted the words with black fabric paint. The pillow backs have an envelope opening and I attached silver grommets to each side of the opening. I made rope ties from cotton cording and "whipped" the edges with jute.
The pillow covers are each made to fit an 18 x 18" pillow form, but the forms are not included. I think these pillow covers would be perfect for a beach or lake house or just on the back porch! They are available for sail in my Etsy shop, Hymns and Verses.
I really hope my post has you singing, whistling, or humming this summer Styx classic:
Come Sail Away, Come Sail Away, Come and Sail Away with Me!
