So, while I work on the desire to do something I'm going to show off my pillows. Yesterday after work I worked like crazy to finish my pillows. While watching Newsies. Yup, Newsies. I really hope you've seen that movie, if you haven't go watch it now. It's one of my all time favorite movies. I was making sure it was appropriate to show at school. It pretty much is.
Okay. Pillows. There were only two left to sew. I'd already done three of the flower print pillow covers and one tan one with a stripe of the flower print sewn in. And I already had the main part of a lumbar pillow cover done. And pieces cut for the sixth and final pillow.
So these are the pillows you saw yesterday. I threw them on the other couch but still the same pillows.
Seriously, how cute is that little band of lace. I'm in love.
And then came the most ridiculously time consuming pillow I've ever made. It was totally worth it though. So super cute (in my opinion). I sewed around 40 separate petals and then sewed them onto the pillow front. Then there's the cute poofy center. Adorable. I used this tutorial. I won't do a step by step, but her directions are great. And this pillow was totally worth all the time it took.
And that's the pillow covers. Now I'm off to at least try to finish painting my kitchen chairs. There's a lot of spray paint in my future. And sleeping in. No school tomorrow thanks to Easter. That's the best.
