The Pillow Maker

After being inspired by one of my favorite blogs http://adaanddarcy.blogspot.com I set out on a quest to making some lovely floral pillows. I sure found out quick that it is not as easy as it seems to find amazing floral print fabric even in Toronto's Fashion District. I wasn't so sure at the beginning about whether or not my darling boyfriend would kill me for getting such girly fabric but I decided to take the plunge anyway. Luckily it turns out I wasn't in trouble and he actually liked it in the end! Putting my new found sewing skills to the test by sewing these pillows by hand with no ruler I decided to make a stool cover as well, again with no ruler...
Surprisingly it also turned out quite well. Seeing as I had no sewing machine (yet) I was not able to make a hem so i took the left over fabric, braided it and hand then stitched it on to finish it off. Thank goodness for http://.beachvintage.blogspot.com for this fun and easy idea and all of her other D.I.Y projects!
