Good morning, all!
I was toying around with what to do with more of the lovely fabric I got this week and thought it would be fun to mix it up a bit with some lace goodies. My girls selected the doily, a vintage piece I picked up in a box of treats some years ago.
Here's a quick throw pillow you might want to try!
I sewed the two pieces together, pressed open the seam and then centered the doily and pinned it along the seam. That will form the top edge of the pillow.
Next, I sewed, using a narrow zig zag stitch around the design in such a way that it wouldn't be noticed.
At this point, I turned it inside out and sewed along the edges, leaving a 3" opening on the bottom to fill the pillow. I also pinned the lace back out of the way, so it wouldn't get accidentally caught.
Time to turn it right side out and stuff!
Once I stuffed it, I thought it needed just a bit more for decoration - it was rather plain. So, I pulled out my little "button maker kit" and used what was there to make the last two buttons I could with that one! If you have never played with one of these, I heartily recommend it! They are way fun! I'll do a posting on how to, when I get myself some more!
I took the two buttons and sewed them one to another THROUGH the pillow and pulled it snug. I love it!
Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday!
