New Pillow Sneek Peek!
I'm sewing pillows again . . . surprised? . . . I didn't think so.
I saw this great stripe on sale at Fabricland and I couldn't help myself! I payed way too much for it, but I LOVES it!
I brought it home with some other super cheap quilting fabric and when I pulled it out of the bag and our conversation went something like this:
Lee: "Hey I really like that fabric"
Me: "Yeah mee too, but it was SUPER expensive"
Lee: "oh like $5 a yard ? ? "
Me: "aaaa yeah . . . . sure? ? ? (like 6 times that, she says under her breath)"
I bought 1 yard of fabric at $33 I've never spent that much on a yard of fabric before and I might never again but I really LOVED the stripe and I'm willing to pay a little more for something I LOVE.
To keep the cost down . . . I'm going to use the super expensive stripe for the front of the pillows and a much cheaper paisley for the back. So, if you're doing the math, that works out to $16.50 a pillow, much more reasonable!
I would have finished this week but I had and impending anniversary this Saturday to plan for . . . we'll be celebrating 6 years of marital bliss on Saturday! Hopefully I'll find a quick hour or so to finish off my pillows . . . and maybe another 30 minutes or so to whip up another pillow how to, this time a simple variation on our super simple Envelope Pillow Covers.
Check for all of that early Next week!! :)
