I forgot to show you these pillows that I made for two of my friends for Christmas. I love birds. I love birds on pillows. One friend of mine likes the primitive decorating style. So this is my rendition of primitive...I made her this pillow.
I was trying to figure out what to get the other friend and I decided to make her this pillow.
I don't know if you can tell, but I embroidered x's for the eyes and little bird feet.
Both fabrics are 100% percent cotton. After I drew, cut out and ironed on the birds I sewed around the edge with a single stitch. I didn't want it to show much. It was fun.
I have one more I am making like this that I hope to use as a give away later.
I have started sewing some again and am reminded how much I like to sew.
This is a project I did right before Christmas. It's not perfect so...don't look too close. I needed a slipcover for this chair.
Chair History: You know me and chairs. Well in 1973 my friend/cousin and I stopped at a yard sale. I saw this wing back chair for $2.50. I had to shove it into the back seat of my 1965 Mustang. At the time, it had a yellowish tapestry fabric. I used it in my bedroom. Then when I got married I took it with me. Eventually, the bottom fell out.
Fast forward to 1988. I got it reupholstered in a rust color fabric. The color was very IN. The fabric, my friends, will NEVER EVER wear out. That's what they told me and it's true. But the color well....
Right before Christmas this year, I made this slipcover. I needed something to go with my off white slipcovers over my couch and chair.
Here are the side details.
This how I fitted the fabric or made the pattern.
Sew there you have it (Sorry I just had to use the word)... my crafty side.
I know this about you. You enjoying blogging. Do you have other hobbies or interests that bring you joy?
