Pillows!

I’m happy that I did get to do a few pillows this weekend.  One of my favorites is the Alice in
Wonderland print fabric.  I just put it on my desk chair for pictures.  This pillow is 14 inches.

I wanted to use something with it and found that I had this onion fringe with similar colors.

I think it came out cute and I may even have enough fabric left over to make little cushions for that child’s table and chairs set that I got for free a few months ago.

Pillow number 2 was the Alice in Wonderland text and my pillow form was a bit bigger at 20 inches.  I wanted to add something to this pillow, too, so I found some extra fabric that I already had, with a color that worked, and made a ruffle out of it.

It is pictured here with the Alice print pillow.

You can see some of the text a bit clearer in these close up shots.

I put it on my sofa so you could see just how big it is ~ almost the size of the back pillows that go with my sofa!

I only got as far as cutting the French Country Rooster fabric and picking out a possible trim.  Everything got put to the side when I had an opportunity for a visit with the granddaughter today. 

I’ll be cleaning up the house this week after work to get the house ready to go on the market.  Our goal is the end of this month and, of course, it’s almost here!

Oh Kathy, they turned out great! Isn't it funny how everything seems to stop for those grandbabies.

Enjoy your evening,

Kathy,
They look lovely! I love the trim you used around the Alice print pillow. I am excited to see the french country rooster ones you make!

Oh Well, I would have to say that Granddaughter trumps pillow making any day!

What a great job you've done on those little pillows.... or, should I say BIG! I've never seen the Alice in Wonderland print.... It's awfully cute, isn't it? I go to the fabric store OFTEN, but rarely look at fabrics.... I have enough to sew until the day I die....and then some.

We downsized about eight years ago.. What a big job...and the garage?..... Oh my....still haven't gotten a car inside. That's on my list for this summer.

Have a great day!

Huggies,
Spencer
