Crafty Things/Show and Tell Friday: Simple Sewing Project Pillow #2

Here's the second pillow cover I made. It turned out very pretty!

I will also be linking this up to Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.


Here's what I started out with; these two pillows came with my free wing chairs. They are pretty, but I wanted to make new covers that would match my bedroom colors.
I conquered my fear of sewing to make simple covers using discontinued fabric samples that I bought for $1.00. They were just the right size to fit these pillows, with only a little bit of measuring and cutting needed.

This was the fabric I chose for pillow #2.

My supplies. The rolls of white and off-white tulle I already had in my craft closet, same for the blue ribbon.

Here's pillow #2, front side.

Back side of pillow #2.

And the finished pillow cover after I "fancied" it up!

I spent $4.00 for the four pieces of fabric squares ( a front and back for each pillow). The jewelry charms were each $3.00. The tulle and ribbon I already had, and the pillows themselves were free.
Total spent: $10.00 for two pretty pillows for my bed!

Thanks for joining me!
