Okay... where did the month of October go?
And while we are at it, where has the first part of
I've been gone here and there during the last month,
but a little has been done in my Hidey Hole.
My son-in-law asked for new pillows for their couch.
I made them 24" pillows a few years ago
and they have changed their color scheme,
so he would like new pillows.
These will be a Christmas gift for him.
I was trying to decide on a pattern to use
and came across a youtube video by Mister Domestic
on fabric weaving.
How fun will this be??
The most frustrating part was trying to get the
bias tape makers to work.
I finally gave up and made the bias ribbon pieces by hand
and then began to weave.
It took a few tries to get the fabric placement to my liking
and once I did that, the weaving went fairly quickly.
This Wefty tool is a life saver with the weaving.
A LOT of pins are used to hold everything in place.
It got to be a bit cumbersome, since I am making
a 24" pillow,
but the weaving was done.
These colors are pretty true.
Now I need to get this quilted and made into a pillow.
I think I will quilt it with a spiral.
Hopefully this will be done soon!
