After my last post, my first big bow pillow, I decided to give it another shot. I knew I could do better than that. I still think the first pillow is pretty, but I have to admit, that first bow is a little of the bozo-the-clown-size variety.
I think I got the hang of it with this one.
I love pale pink.
And I love the crisp folds of soft cotton fabric.
I so appreciate it when someone takes notice of my work.
This Newsie pillow case was so much fun to make! I wanted something unique and eye-catching and love how it turned out.
I made the 12" x16" pillow case out of soft, white jersey knit with an existing newsprint design. I'm sure there's a way to make your own newsprint design...I might have to try that at some point.
That blush color was too good to pass up, so I accentuated it with a touch of femininity and texture.
and I couldn't leave the back out, so I brought around a little design from the front.
A perfectly fun little pillow design for an avid newspaper reader, writer, reporter or news enthusiast. As for me? Although I do watch the news and read a newspaper now and again, I happen to just like the way it looks. And isn't that what design is all about? Maybe I should ask Nate Berkus.
I've had a funny poem running through my head the last half hour, while cleaning up my big sewing mess, called, "If I could stay home and sew all day". It's pretty darn funny. The only problem is, since I'm making it up as I go, I can't remember it.
In a nutshell, I had BIG DREAMS for this day, big dreams.
It's spring break for the school district I work for and I had all day today to stay at home and sew.
I had high hopes of getting several pillows done that I need for the crafters showcase I'm joining in a couple weeks. And once I got those done, I was going to work on a couple of skirts that I keep putting on the back burner. And once I got those done, well who knew, the sky's the limit!
Anywho...I think you know where this is going. Maybe I'm just a crazy optimist, but things never seem to go as quickly as I think they'll go.
BIG SEWING DREAMS: 298
Just for a laugh...because I need one about now. :)
