This year I decided to make some more
primarily for myself,
since I had just one.
pillows have been made,
And not just for me!
I've shared photos of the pillows
I've now given to some friends.
The five "Peace" pillows were given yesterday
to my friends in quilt club.
I have one more to finish for myself,
which may or may not get done before Christmas.
The other day I showed this photo of the
"Joy" pillows I made.
The letters were lost in the background of the pillows
and I wasn't thrilled with them.
Ann at Straythreads suggested I outline the letters in black.
What a difference this made!
Thank you, Ann!!
The letters stand out and can easily be seen.
These are ready to be given as gifts now, too.
A couple of weeks ago,
posted pillows she had made from dish towels.
Off to Target I went!
I found one of the towels she had used,
along with a couple of other towels as well.
Can I just say....
these pillows went together so quickly
and are just so cute!
The towel for the pillow on the right was from the dollar section.
The one of the left was found back in the kitchen area.
As Sarah mentioned,
I took the bottom and side hems out
and cut a 15" square from these.
The backing is another kitchen towel.
This one came as a set with the "Peace"
I basically just had to cut the side hems off to get the
width for the backing.
Binding was from my stash.
I have two more gifts finished and ready to give.
And, of course, I bought this towel to make myself one, too!
This year has been the Year of the Pillow!
These have been quick and easy gifts to make
and so much fun!
