Pretty Lil' Pillows
Well, this was my project for the last couple of days(along with peddlin' flowers and working on some orders). These are a few of the pillows I made for the "ART IN THE ALLEY" festival this weekend - held locally. It is such a wonderful event - so many gifted artisans there - which I do NOT consider myself - so I'm tickled to even be in their company. I'm so looking forward to having a wonderful time mingling with all the people who come from all over to walk up and down the alley in our beautiful historic town. If anyone is close, please come, you'll love it. Live music, delicious food and great finds.
I'm really trying hard to get lots of goodies made up - simply not enough hours in the day - but I thought I'd share a picture or two with you of this fun and easy project.
*Paint on a piece of canvas in a size that compliments your pillow - I actually used napkins - so there was hardly any measuring or cutting at all.
*Sew on machine or hand stitch canvas to front side of pillow
*Add buttons or any other type of embellishment you like
*Sew two sides together - I didn't turn mine inside out because I liked the frayed edges of the napkins
*Stuff and hand stitch opening left for filling
*I added a grosgrain bow because I just looooove ribbon - but you don't have to use a thing.
Fun, easy and oh so cute - perfect on a porch swing - or as an accent pillow anywhere. You could paint a monogram on the canvas or how cute would it be to put a baby's name, birth date and all those memorable details on there. It would be the perfect gift in colors to match a nursery.
Happy Creating friends!!!
