pillow week: one

November 7th, 2010

The first day is always easy; it’s the second day I usually crash and burn. It’s pillow week don’t you know. Seems I need a themed week on the internet to get me to actually make something. Why is that?

Look I even put in a zipper: a nice little metal number that I got god know where. It would look really good if it wasn’t so obviously off center, but that’s what I get for not pinning or even planning.

The fabric is from a friend who very kindly shared a little of her ikea stash.  Maybe I’ll get the ornaments to match.

    Love the zip as a nice bit of detail. I could really do with making a new set of cushions (pillows) for our sofa to replace the tatty old ones but I’ve got so much to make for the holiday season that I daren’t – maybe next year :-)

  8. I fingered that VERY FABRIC only yesterday in Ikea. And blew my whole wad of dough in the fabric dept, I think.
