While you're oh so patiently waiting for the next row of dark purple 9 patch blocks for the Olive quilt, I thought I'd toss in a few throw pillows just for funzies.
When I recently repainted my office/playroom/dining room space, I wanted to do something to the mis-match of pillows I had just laying around.
Here's the pillows.
and a few fabrics I picked. 1 yard of each color.
Not real scientific with the measurements. Just laid the pillow on the fabric and marked how wide it needed to be. I cut the fabric in one long strip and folded it in half (right side in)
stitched up 2 sides and half of the 3rd side so I could turn it right side out and stuff the pillow inside.
Then I pinched the last part together and stitched it together by hand, making sure to have the edges turned in.
Her baby doll had a nice nappy on the pillow too.
Lather, rinse and repeat 3 more times and here's the pillows.
Now, off to work on some squares and a dust ruffle for the same bed......
