So I went in search of a quick tutorial for making a throw pillow cover. Check out:
Love this site! She has a super-simple tutorial on making an envelope cover - no zippers or hand-stitching required! I love that it is so simple and so easy to just pull them off and throw them in the wash (necessary in a house with 2 cats and a baby!).
I found this fun vintage print fabric at a thrift store (Waverly from back in the day), and it just goes perfectly in my living room. I had never sewn on trim before - this was my first experience with the zipper foot on my sewing machine. Man it was simple! I love how these turned out - what do you think?
Do you see how easy the back is? This pillow is just like the shams on your bed - shove the pillow in one side, then the other - done! A little bit of sunshine in the living room now.
AND - I got an order for 2 of my peasant dresses...remember this?
Now I'm making 2 in these fabrics - I'll definitely upload pics when they're done!
