1. I have too many unused pillows in my cedar closet.
2. My husband is not too pleased with my collection of unused pillows.
I gave it some thought & decided maybe I could just cover the existing pillows so that way there won't be any added to the cedar closet collection & he'd never know.
Great idea turned bad!
I don't sew!
I decided to search some blogs for inspiration. I chanced upon a tutorial for no sew pillows...hmmm...this sounds good. (I used Kate's tutorial @ Centsational Girl.)
I needed some sort of fusible web to make the magic happen. Stich Witchery was the product I skeptically picked up at Michaels.
Oh my goodness, why have I never discovered this until now? I mean, I always knew there were products like these on the market, but I never knew they actually worked and better yet, that I could actually make them work! (And, no I haven't been paid to tout the wonderfulness of Stitch Witchery.)
Coming from the girl who always wishes she could sew, this may be one of the greatest inventions ever!
Flying by the seat of my pants since I didn't really know what I was doing, I knew I wanted to use big felt leaves on the pillow.
I came up with this pillow cover:
Now I know I have alot to learn yet (I did make it a tad too large) but honestly, I never thought it'd turn out at all, so I'm happy with it.
After making that pillow, I was addicted & had to make another one. I had made felt rosettes a few days before, (tutorial here) not knowing what I was going to do with them.
Would they look cute on a pillow?
I added a brown throw & now the wicker chair that sits next to my fireplace has this new fall look.
Do you have any craft projects in the works for Fall?
