So Linda at ItAllStartedWithPaint along with Kari at ThistlewoodFarm are hosting this Pillowpalooza party. I wanted to make some pillows to jazz up the joint before my son's grad party. I fully expected I might be linking some pillow flops, but I LOVE my pillows. I Love them! L.O.V.E. them I tell 'ya. My mom might even be smiling down thinking there is hope for me and my sewing abilities yet. Ummm probably not mom, were you watching when not once but twice I tripped over the cord and then tried to sew with the pillow already IN the burlap?
I had all those burlap sacks left from my breakfast nook valance making task, and I have seen all those amazing pillows you ladies make from burlap. I was fairly confident I could sew a straight line. I took some teal paisley pillows, (don't be jealous) and just cut the burlap bigger than them and stuck it inside, paisley and all.
|You know you want this fabric, admit it|
At the beginning of the week I glued them, but it wasn't working and that's when I borrowed the sewing machine. I stitched all the way around them and just frayed the burlap when I was done for a fringe. I was actually amazed at how I was able to get the pillow in nice and snug. I thought they needed something so I went through some jars of buttons that I've had for 25 years. I bought them in plastic bags at a garage sale from an old lady who saved them for years, so some could be I don't know how old!
Tonight I went grocery shopping and stopped at the farm store just to see if there were still some coffee sacks left. I bought 8 more. They cost a whole $1.28 each.
|This one is my favorite.|
