I actually made pillows this week… wow! I have had a sewing machine for years, and have used it more on scrapbook pages than on fabric. I found these super cute cloth napkins at TJ Maxx a few months ago and thought that they would make the perfect pillows for my living room.
Of course they stayed in my craft room for a couple of months before I finally got motivated to actually sew them. So a couple of weeks ago I finally broke out the sewing machine and pulled out the napkins.
Of course I was all motivated to go when I decided that I should probably wash and iron the napkins first.
So into the wash they went, and then I brought them downstairs to the craft room and started sewing. Surprisingly enough I did a pretty decent job and kept the stitch lines pretty straight. As long as you do not look too closely that is
I was all ready to stuff the pillows, using a couple of old bedroom pillows that I had saved for this purpose. Of course once I opened the pillows up I realized that the stuffing was not going to work. And since my closest craft store is over 40 minutes away I decided to log into Amazon and ordered this. I love Amazon Prime!
A week later I finally finished my pillows!
Of course Eric still has not noticed them, but Megan noticed them as soon as she came into the room and told me that she loved them!
I am so proud of myself.. I made pillows!
