The shams don't look as awkward as I thought they would. I had a little surprise when I went to put the filler pillows inside them, though. The monogram shop put one of them on upside down so the flap on the back of the sham hangs open on the one of them.
Oh well. The shams were $3.15 at Yves Delorme and the monogram shop didn't charge me at all after all the trouble with getting the job done.
I went to The Second Yard in downtown Charlottesville for the filler pillows. The Second Yard is a four story house in which every crannie is full of furniture and bolts of fabric. In my wandering, I came upon this gorgeous sofa and had to snap a picture of it.
