Headboard Smorgasbord

Say that 3 times really fast !

I just finished my first diamond tufted headboard. My #1 tip: Don’t drill your thumb nail ! I’ve sewn it with the machine, stapled it to a cornice and now drilled it, hazards of the job I suppose.

This one also had a 2” shirred band all the way around the outside.

Traditionally, the diamonds are taller than they are wide, I used 7/8” buttons on this one.

With a double row of nail heads:


Funky shape and fat cord:


Smooth border:

Oh my gosh, LOVE that tufted headboard you just finished, Tammy! The fabric is great, too, probably because it matches my own master bedroom! :) I love the others as well. They make such a statement.

Tammy, I am in awe! These are amazing! Absolutely stunning!!!
I'm sorry, but I had to laugh about drilling your thumb! I've sewn my fingers, hammered them and probably stapled them but I haven't drilled them yet! But I wouldn't be surprised if I did! I can relate!

Your work is beautiful. I hear you about the hazards of sewing - be careful! I featured your blog at stylesson today.

As usual, your work is gorgeous, Tammy. I love them ALL (the double nailhead is probably my all time favorite, though) and the tufted one is really quite beautiful. Love the added detail of the band.
