Throw Pillows

Last year I bought 4 throw pillows from good will for $1 each. I told myself I would make new covers for them and never had until tonight. I have a sinus cold. Yuck. But because I am sick with this I don't feel pregnant sick which is actually really invigorating. So I wen to Joanns and got an assortments of fabrics to play with. You may remember the Anthro bird pillow from a post earlier this week.

                                 I decided I liked it too much not to have it, So I made my own.

                                             I also made a letter H to represent the Family name.




 I took the throw pillow I already had and placed it on my fabric. I traced the shape and cut out 2 {in different fabric. Then I cut a third piece for the back so that I wouldn't have to add a zipper. The third piece is about 1/3 the length of the back. Then I looked at the Anthro pillow and traced the image of the bird onto some floral fabric. I cut out the bird and using a really tight zig zag stitch sewed to to the front piece then I turned my pieces inside out and sewed them together.

I used wool felt, corduroy, and a knit, mixed with some florals. I like the mix, hopefully they will be welcoming a new couch tommorow!!


"Gee ma more birds and letters, gosh don't ya like anything else!"
