Yippeee! My second Totally Tute-ular Tuesday!
As some of you know I've been doing a
spring redesign on my deck.
Yesterday I posted my new outdoor
coffee table with "unusual" legs!
I failed to mention the complete shock
registered by hubby that it actually worked!
LOL! Score for female ingenuity Ladies!
Today's deck sprucing post is a
freecycle tutorial on pillows.
I'm going to tell you right off, the pillows, as-of-yet,
are not hand-stitched closed at the bottom!
I took three pillows that I was no longer using
and a soft shade curtain that I never used
to do this project.
I started with the soft shade.
I cut it in half lengthwise and removed the fabric ties.
I plan to use half of the curtain for a table runner later.
I then had enough fabric to cut 3 squares
the size of the pillows.
I put two of the squares face to face and
stitched 3 sides closed.
Turned inside-out, ironed and stuffed.
Easy, peasy, done...except for the hand-stitching.
For the next pillow I used the third toile square
and an identical sized square of burlap that
I had left from another project. I had a small
swatch of toile left too and decided to sew it to
the front of the burlap
and fray the edges.
I put the front and back face to face and sewed
three sides together, repeat above.
For the third pillow I used two more squares
of burlap and a dish towel I had.
I stitched the dish towel to the front of a burlap
square, put the two pieces of burlap face to face
and stitched 3 sides. You know the rest!
They will look so much better when the
bottoms are stitched...and I'm thinking
about edging the frayed square with
some black ribbon.
Total cost: zero (0) dollars!
I hope you will all visit tomorrow for
the very first
"Rave Reviews Wednesday"
at Sweet Pickles and Chocolate!
