goob's room - turquoise pillow

quick post - mostly pics - here's what i made a couple of weeks ago for the goob.....


i started off with some white fabric (once a bed sheet) - and i roughly cut out two rectangles to make an insert pillow to the size i wanted.....


i then grabbed my turquoise fabric stash which i've been making things for goob's room makeover - and started cutting random sized strips.....


.....then i just started sewing.....


.....and butchered an old pillow insert to reuse for filling in the new one.....


..........and so i don't have any more photos of the making - cause i just got into the making - but here's lots of pretty pics to follow - i hope you can forgive me for this being a half-arsed tutorial!!







i really really like how it turned out - even if it is a little slap-happy and a little uneven and bulky in places!! (i tend to rush when i'm busy creating!)

i am intending on making more pillows this way - so i promise to write a more detailed tutorial one day.

for those that might be interested - the white fluffy pillows behind - i made out of bath mats.
i posted about them here.

hope your wednesday has been a good one.
it's been super wet here - a nice day for triple j and i to laze around in our pjs all day.
love school holiday laziness!!!

off to cook up a special b'day meal - and a choc b'day cake for afters!!

hugz from me.

  11. At least the pillow you butchered was a normal plain boring pillow.
