They're in your family room, living room, bedroom, maybe even in your office or kitchen.
The odds are your dog or cat has her own pillow! So what took me so long to decide to whip up my first pillows? I have no idea. But I'm so glad I did... and I'm hooked!
I wanted something more 3-dimentional to showcase at Craft Shows this November so I thought, "Hey, should I attempt to make some pillows? Dare I try?"
Well, I tried. And it was way less painful and tedious that I thought it would be! Its more like making a couple of mini quilts! And more functional if I do say so myself.
I used the (free!) Stripe of Strips pattern and dug into my scrap pile to make the center strips. LOVE how they turned out especially with the Kona cotton in Coal added! And I broke down and used the much hoarded DS Quilts fabric for the back and binding. Binding these pillows like a quilt is not in the actual pattern, but I love how it looks so I wandered off the pattern. Shocking, I know.
Trust me, if these pillows (for some crazy reason) do not sell I will claim them for myself!
Otherwise, I'll be making a new set for the (yet to be purchased) living room... and bedroom... and Eli's room... and the entry way... and my car. And even one for Hazel!
OH and maybe they'd make good Christmas gifts for sisters and sisters-in-law?
And for those of you obsessed with fabric in the mustard range of color, or Amy Butler, or both... I actually found a shop on Etsy selling this Lotus Wallflower pattern in mustard yellow!!! And not for $16.99 per FQ!
I decided to bestow 1/2 yard to my fabric stash because, well.... just because.
What's the one fabric you'd looooove to have but just cannot seem to find it?
