It must be a pillow week…

I came across a “Create with me challenge” on Ucreate, and just had to play along.  Recently we bought a new couch and it is screaming for throw pillows.  After a quick trip to IKEA for pillow forms (down 20” pillow forms are only $7.00, what a steal!) I had to then figure out what I really wanted to do.  I didn’t want to spend a lot of money either, so I just went through my fabric “stash” and found a couple of things I really liked.  Left over canvas from one project, and some light blue jersey knit that was given to me.  PERFECT!  IMAG0262

I followed the tutorial found here and went to work… It ended up taking a bit more time than I had planned, but the lack of sleep last night was worth it.  My 4 year old came to me this morning and said “Mom, I sat on the couch this morning to watch cartoons and saw a new pillow, it is SO CUTE!”  What a compliment :)

Happy Crafting!!!
