I finally finished my pillow project! I’m really happy with how these turned out. It’s a fresh look for the new year. Here’s the other pillow:
And here’s how the back looks:
I’ve realized I love sewing pillow covers. They’re simple projects that you can finish in a few hours, and I love the satisfaction of finishing a project.
Unlike the “ravioli” pillows I made last week, I quilted these ones. You can kind of see the quilting in this photo. I did simple straight stitching. I think stippling would have been really cute too, but honestly, I was too lazy to switch my presser foot.
Ta-dah! Here’s the final look! Here they are all nice and fluffed out, picture perfect. *sigh* What a beauty.
…and here they are after a few minutes with my husband. :-} I need to let go and embrace the main purpose of pillows.
I guess you can say the pillows are well loved. 🙂 Luckily they puff back into shape after a couple fluffs.
If you’re thinking of doing a pillow cover project yourself, I recommend buying the pillows from Ikea. Both of the pillows above are 21″ square down pillows (hence the fluffiness) from Ikea and only cost ~$6 each.
