Lazy Sunday, what not better than relaxing and sewing some pillows.
Some people have cats - we have pillows! :) I'm still working with my New York fabric swatches. I cut 32 black and 32 brown 5" squares and laid them out in one big square. Not really sure what to do with those first, but there was a leftover pillow sitting on the floor... Decision made! The pillow is a 18"x18" (You will only need 32 squares total, if you sew one pillow!)
One row at a time, I sewed four squares together
Put right sides together, sew along the side, attach one more square to it, until there are four.
I ruffled black and brown leftover fabric into 5.5" stripes. Depending on the thickness of the fabric, it will shrink quite a bit. My initial stripes were 18" long and after everything was ruffled up they were about 6".
I laid the ruffled fabric over the square fabric and sewed in a straight line over both.
When all squares were sewed together in fours, I put right sides together and pinned them together
Sewed each row to the next, with alternating the colors.
TADA.. A new decorative Pillow for the bed.
One side has brown ruffles
the other one has black ones.
One pillow done, one to go... Maybe tonight!?
