My DIY not really alpaca azure throw

This weekend I "made" a throw inspired by Crate and Barrel's Lima Alpaca Azure Throw. The real deal is $169 and I'm sure it's fabulous. See it below.

Mine is a couple of yards of some sort of jersey knit a friend gave me. I folded it in half, sewed up the sides, turned it right side out and sewed the opening closed.

I also tried out some other fabric I picked up as a room divider curtain. The combo of a sort of flame stitch with a sort of stripe in blue and turquoise has this awesome surfer vibe. However, Mr. Bromeliad found it traumatizing. The nesting tables are a recent street find.

Have you changed anything up for spring yet?


  1. The throw looks good, and the tables have beautifully elegant legs. But I am with Mr Bromeliad on the curtain. He is clearly a fellow of refined taste and probably drinks gin.

  2. Mise, you made Mr. Bromeliad's week. And he is indeed a gin man.

    That is amazing! I'm always hesitate to buy throws as we have a dog and he loves to snuggle on them when we're at work, but i will def be trying this!
