More Pillows!

Here are two more pillows that I have made from my pile of donated upholstery fabric for the fast approaching Holiday Fair. They are both made using 12 x 16 inch pillow forms and they both have an overlap on the back so the pillow covers can be removed for cleaning - and also so I didn't have to hand stitch the turning opening closed at the end!

Two-Fabric PillowThis pillow was made with two different fabrics that had leaves on them. I thought it was a pretty neat combination and I liked the contrast of the dark and the light. I also like that the colors are not split right down the middle, or divided front and back. What do you think?

Banded PillowThis pillow is made from what was left of the fabric I used for Tote bag #11. Then I made a band out of a scrap of lining fabric from another tote bag and sewed a button onto it. A very easy way to dress up a handmade or store bought pillow.

Still so much sewing to do...must get back to the sewing room! The real me will be back next week, I promise!

Happy Stitching!

  • Great pillows - I personally prefer "off centre" to perfectly centred - it just seems more fun to me, and quite frankly, it's easier to attain the former than the latter!

    Pillow #2 is wearing a pretty belt to show off her slim waistline, lol!
