More pillows!

After my recent sewing project, Maggie commissioned me to make some pillows for her.  These should brighten up her new college apartment quite nicely.

The fabrics she selected are beautiful, but I now have a million tiny silver shreds over every surface in the apartment.  Next time, Maggie, cotton.  Please.

I’ve spent more than enough money at Joann Fabrics recently, and have all the supplies for a couple upcoming projects.   I’m graduating from pillows to aprons and skirts.

I am hereby a self-proclaimed sewing novice.  It took me two hours for each of these pillows, but I did make them!  They are 20 inch squares, with a zipper closure in the center of the back.  Once I understood the engineering, the tricky part was lining up the pattern properly.

Weekend project = success.
