|don't you just love my new pillow? I know I do!|
You see, a few weeks ago, my mom gave me this blouse and told me I can do whatever with it:
So this blouse ended up on my stash and stayed there for a couple of weeks until inspiration hit me last week (don't you just love it when that happens?). I was admiring some pillow projects online and I was thinking of buying fabric to make some new pillow cases for my throw pillows when that blouse popped into my head. It's a perfect match for my current color scheme of cream and gray!
Last weekend, I got to work. I have already worked out the process in my head by this time and this project was so easy... literally only took a few minutes to make.
(size 14... though sizes run a little smaller here in Asia) and used one of my pillow cases to see if I have enough fabric for the case I wanted to make (my pillow cases are 16" x 16"):
|I did!!! Great!|
STEP 2: I pinned my 'pattern' (i.e. pillow case) on the blouse and started cutting around it. I put in around 0.5 inches allowance for the seams.
STEP 3: I now had the front and back pieces of my pillow case. I turned both sides inside-out and sewed along all sides.
STEP 4: Pop open the buttons... turn right side out... insert pillow inside and... I was done!
Hope you all had a great weekend. More projects to be posted, this week so stay tuned! :)
