A pillow! That's what! Please let me preface this by saying I am by no means a seamstress. But I wanted new pillow covers without the big price tag. Right now I feel like it would almost be worth it just to buy the pillow and all its beauty from Pier 1. Phew! This took a little longer than expected and I only have one pillow to show for it.
I had mentioned earlier I was going to continue on the SIL's bedside tables, but decided I didn't feel as well as I thought, so I decided to start my new pillow covers instead. Off I went to Joann Fabrics.
I came home with this! You'll notice there is no pink or purple on this pillow I'm showing. That is in store for my bedroom pillows. There is also a peacock feather and a headband in that photo! = ) We'll see how that turns out!
This project probably would have taken me about twenty minutes if I had a sewing machine. Unfortunately, I don't, so I had to sew by hand. Whoever said pillowcases had to be perfectly straight? ; )
A few pokes later I finally finished!
I put a little pearl embellishment on two of the flowers.
The good news; I finished my pillowcase and I don't hate it. The bad news; I can't find one of my needles! Oops!
