Pillows are one of the easiest things to sew, since it's basically two squares (or rectangles if you want to get fancy) sewn together. It is pretty hard to mess up. Since February, I have been on a pillow making frenzy. I am very fickle when it comes to pillows so I don't like to spend a lot of money on them. A remnant of fabric, preferably purchased from the clearance table, some stuffing (or an insert), and some thread is all it takes.
Here is a little collage of some of the pillows I have made recently.
1. I made the blue one for our family room. (the plaid one in front was made by my mom)
2. I bought the pillow, but made the rolled flower and attached it to the pillow.
3. This is my latest creation. It is part of the project my mom and I stayed up until 2am working on.
4. Another one for the yet to be revealed project
5. I made both of these (two of each) to go on the love seats in our living room.
6. The sassy striped pillow was made for my daughter's recently updated room.
7. These were made from my inspiration fabric for my daughter's room (my first attempt at adding trim).
8. This stipe pillow is another outcome of the 2am project. (hint: it's outdoor fabric)
9. I made the small coral pillow for the family room. (the other two were made by my mom.)
So, now you know what I do in my spare time. I would love to learn to sew well enough to make my kids something and have it sitting at the end of their beds when they wake up.
Any talented seamstresses out there that want to come by and give me a few lessons?
