BAD blogger!!! I just noticed that my last post was a loooooooooonnnnnnnnnnng time ago!!! Life is busy! Really busy.
I've been sewing for a few years now, and just recently (FINALLY) decided to make some new pillows for our house. Strange, since this is a simple thing to sew, but pillows seem to fall to the bottom of the "to sew" list for me.
I was completely smitten with Ruby Star Shining line from the amazing Melody Miller, and finally decided that if I was going to cut into my little stash, I would love to see it every day in my living room. (And then I won't have to go visit it in the cupboard in teh laundry room, where my stash resides).
So, one fantastic tutorial on how to install a piping and a hidden zipper on UTube later, my new pillows were born. (Bonus: the gentleman on the UTube video has a great English accent, and calls his pillow a "cushion" - which makes it so nice for someone who has to watch the 3 part video many, many, many times before finally comprehending it well enough to go forth and sew. Thank you, Phillip!!! Well done! Cheerio!
I LOVE 'em! (The pillows, I mean)! And my husband doesn't hate them. I'm calling that a winwin.
So, without further ado, please meet my new pillows.
Oh, I am really more excited than is appropriate! But a HIDDEN ZIPPER!!! Wow! I really really did it!!! (jumping up and down)!!!
