Time for Crafts
I made some pillows!!! And it was super easy!I saw some gorgeous Orla Kiely textiles at Target yesterday and in a crafty binge of productivity, decided to make some pillows for my couch. I didn’t realize just how much my couch needed some good throw pillows until my delightful nap this afternoon. I would say the napability quotient has significantly improved.I was particularly proud of how I finished the orange one (formerly, a long rectangular dishtowel):I do so love when I get to use some buttons!Anyway, it was super, super easy.And they are going to work perfectly well with the blanket that I’m working on! I swear, some of the colors are exactly the same.Here’s a quick tutorial for the ones that started out as placemats (much easier to make if you don’t have a sewing machine). It was so easy that words aren’t even needed – the photos do all the explanation.*Crafty bonus: I pilfered the stuffing from old/extra pillows. Yay for re-using what I have! Good for the earth and my wallet.
