What are subway tiles? A style of white glazed ceramic tiles used on the walls of New York subway stations in the early 20th century. Nowadays, these timeless tiles can also vary in color and size and are used throughout the home wherever you need them. I want to share some ideas on how you can use them in your kitchen to create a backsplash or even cover the entire wall. Let’s start
As I said above, subway tile is just one common type of tile these days, a rectangular one with usually a glossy surface. It can be any color and size so you can easily find what to match the style of your kitchen. White subway tiles are classics, but if they’re not your thing, check out colored versions like blue, gray, emerald, pink, and others such as marble. The size is also optional: smaller or larger subway tiles will look no worse than the original 3 “× 6”. It is also up to you to highlight the tiles with contrasting mortar or to use suitable grout: contrasting mortars highlight the backsplash and give the kitchen a pattern.
Subway tiles are pretty universal to combine with different materials that you can use: wood, marble, concrete, and others. They easily add color to your monochromatic space or keep the color scheme if you use a matching shade. You are likely envisioning subway tiles laid in the usual horizontal brick pattern. But did you know you can lay subway tile vertically – or even in a herringbone or geometric L-shaped pattern? There are so many possibilities! Give your kitchen a timelessly elegant look with a chic subway tile backsplash and enjoy!

You will need three pieces of fabric - 71 "x 27", 36 "x 23" and 12 "x 23", of course to match the decor. Start by sewing the three pieces together, making sure to sew the right sides together. They are not the same width so be sure to center the pieces. Next, hem both ends by folding the fabric 1/2 "and sewing in a straight line. Next, fold the longer piece (36" long side) right side up 10 "past the edge. Fold Then fold the shorter piece (12 "long side) 3" past the edge. Starting in the middle of one of the sides and pin the edges together. The easiest way to do this is to pinch the fabric together and pin it in place. If you are going to the When the ends are reached, just keep the line the same, leaving about 2 inches of excess on the bodice. After both sides are pinned, it's time to sew the last two lines! Starting about an inch from the end and ending roughly an inch before you also meet the end of the fabric. The corners can be tucked in after the process is complete for a seamless look. Turn the baby right side out and you're good to go put it in the seat cushion! The opening is located under the seat cushion and is not visible. After placing the pillow back on the chair, simply tuck the fabric into the two folds on the back of the seat and pillow.
