Oh, hi! It feels like forever since I’ve last posted. I’m excited about the upcoming posts (two new apparel things to show you AND a blanket!) but today, I have an equally exciting post! Over Christmas break, I sewed my bed some new throw pillows.
Allow me to introduce to the first–a hashtag pillow cover. I sewed it using my new flannel and pillow cover. I wanted a simple, modern throw pillow and a hashtag seemed perfect.
I made the cover using the envelope method. It looks pretty good if I do say so myself. The two flaps didn’t meet, which is a little disappointing, considering I measured it over and over. But oh well, we learn from our mistakes. Cute, right?
Actually, I wasn’t going to post about this, but eventually I decided to. It’s a panda! A couple things turned out wrong, so it
looks like a bear. Once I added the tulle bow, it looked a little better.
And lastly, my favorite pillow. A donut! I used a tutorial online, it was very easy and took me only an hour to sew. I have gotten SO many compliments from friends and family on this. Donuts are probably my favorite dessert, and when I saw a tutorial for this on YouTube I knew that I needed it. The brown flannel/fleece was a remnant from Joann’s, and I received the white flannel and sprinkle colored fabric for Christmas.
My dog likes it too! This is Charlie, he’s a mix between a cocker spaniel and a poodle. When I carried him upstairs, he wasn’t too happy, especially when I started taking pictures.
His eyes were closed, but this picture was so cute, I had to put it up. Is it a donut or a sombrero?
Doesn’t it look so lovely? After learning how to sew and crochet, decorating my bedroom has been easier than ever. I’ve sewn and crocheted hearts, bunting flags, pillows, blankets, etc.
I’ll leave you with this picture. A girl plus her dog equals true love!
P.S. If you would like a tutorial to any of the pillows above, drop a comment and maybe I’ll do one:D
