Here is the completed preppy patchwork pillow:
Sunday, December 14, 2008
A few weeks ago I decided to make a few new throw pillows for my daybed. OK. So I didn't actually decide per-say, since my fashion teacher takes marks on these things. But I did make one. And after a couple of trips to the fabric shops I had aquired a new piece of darling Amy Butler fabric (in pink and green, naturally), a coordinating piece in green cotton, two zippers, and some iron-on applique initial patches. But before I proceed, I must make a confession. Said Amy Butler fabric already resided in my fabric collection. In fact, a good amount of it. Enough to make a preppy little sumer dress. Enough to still be sitting there in it's pink and green goodness patiently waiting to be sewn into something fabulous. Which never happend, sadly. Because I didn't have the time. Then it was winter. Damned Canada. But, rest assured, I will make this dress. Oh yes I wil. But until then, I had to go buy more of this EXACT same fabric, because I don't want to risk not having enough for whe I eventually do make that dress. Makes sense, right? Of course it does. I have only made one pillow so far, but hopefully when school lets out for Christmas holidays in a week, I will have more than enough time.
