So I placed a bid the other day on Ebay, and I "won" some great fabric. I love how they say you won, but you still have to pay for it! I'm so new to sewing it's not even funny, as a matter of fact I sent my Bestie an email begging her to come down next week to give me another lesson.
The problem is, I don't sew often enough and I forget stuff, and I hate watching dvd's of how to, I want someone to show me. Insert Bestie! She's loves me, hopefully enough to come give me a lesson. I'll have to have to help her paint something in return.
Today I had to go it alone, and it was okay. My bobbin did run out at the end, so lucky me I have pre-filled ones. I've forgotten how to fill the bobbins, and thread the machine, but it's all good, I just use neutral tread for everything! lol
Here's a close up of the fabric, I'm in love with "The Hunt", and anything with horses.
One of the best things about the fabric, it's in panels. Very easy to cut out and I "won" two yards, so if you would like some pillows let me know. I never thought about what I would do with the other 10 panels! lol
Joann's had a 40% of sale on pillow inserts, so I bought 2 of the 18x18. The pillow covers are slightly smaller, but I wanted them to be really fluffy.
Ta Da! Pillow #1, I made them with envelope backs, I just used a plain light brown cotton fabric. Nothing special, but it did the job.
Both pillows at home in my living room. I just showed the living room reveal yesterday and I'm already making changes. I swear it's never ending, and I love it!
Seriously if you'd like a panel or two to make your own pillows let me know and I'll pop them in the mail to you. The panel would be cool framed too.
Thanks for stopping by! xx
