I was chatting with my very dear friend Heather on FB today. We were talking about sewing pillows and buying pillows. Very important stuff. Heather showed me a few pillows she wanted, asking if I could possibly sew some for her. Of course I will!
She pointed out this pillow that she wants but she says it is too pricey (I agree 100%). I told her maybe she could piece it together, kind of like a quilt. From her response I knew that wasn't something she was interested in doing. I told her that if I got around to it I would attempt making it myself and if I got it right I would make her one when I got back to the States in a few months.
Well, after getting off the chat with her I decided to give it a whirl. It wasn't too difficult. The most difficult part was figuring out how big to cut each of the pieces and figuring how to cut all the pieces.
I think overall I did fairly well for the first try. I did mark down all the dimensions of all the piece and instructions for round two, when I make it for her.
Just thought I would share the results and let Heather have a chance to tell me if she would like one. Next time I would make the cross in the middle more narrow. Other than that, I think it is OK as is.
Just so you know, the colors of the pillow are a dark pink and navy blue. The color isn't showing very correctly in the pictures.
So, what do you think?
