More Pillows

Hi friends!
I finished another pillow!
That pillow form that I made at first was just to short so I made another.
It fits a little better.
I used the other pillow form to make this. Another spring pillow!
Of course she will need to get four pillow forms that fits it.
I read some where that you need them one each bigger all over. So I will tell her.
I like finishing two more and will have them done, maybe this week.
Still taking it slow on Hubby's orders, he fusses if I do something they told me not to. but he is doing a lot for me.

Spring Pillow

Hi friends!
Putting the zipper in
I finished this one Wednesday. Thursday we got up early for my eye surgery and I slept most of the rest of the day! This morning I had to go back for him to check it and they dilated my eye and he said it was still swollen so I may not get any sewing done today.
But tomorrow for sure!
I think I will make a pillow that fits these when I get to where I   can see.
Have a good one

Abby's Pillows

Hi friends!
This is the four spring pillows!
Aren't they pretty?

One with the same on both sides.
We went and paid bills and bought groceries yesterday so I didn't get a lot done.
I did get the interfacing on and pinned on one side of the zipper.
Shouldn't take long to get that zipper sewed into the side. Hopefully I will finish these by next week.Hugs

Christmas pillows

Hi friends!
I worked all day Saturday putting on interfacing and putting in zippers and got finish with both of the last two Christmas pillows.
I still need to get zippers for the four spring pillow covers.
Maybe I can get those finished by the end of the week.
This is the second one!
This is the next four!

Two Down!

Hi friends!
One more done!
Maybe I can get another done this weekend.
 Very pretty pillows!
Before I sewed the zipper in I used some iron on interfacing to keep those big threads from getting in to zipper.
Good thing I bought a few yards of that not long ago.
Have a great weekend

One down

Hi friends!
Finally finished one pillow cover!
It needs a pillow that fits inside it. Mine is to fat and short.
Should be fine with a better pillow in it .
Three more of these and then I will get 4 zippers for the next four, they are more spring or summer like.
I think they will look great on Abby's couch.

Seam Ripping and the mail

Hi friends!
I sat down and started taking out the zipper yesterday, they are not hard to take out.
Took it all out and pinned in one side to start over. It will be much easier to work with like this, more like putting into the back of a dress, which is all I have ever done with them before.
Look what came in the mail for me today!
Chris and Amy found it some where and got it for me.
It has a little drawer under it.
I've never seen any thing like it! Isn't it adorable?

Hi friends!
This is a first for me. putting a invisible zipper into any thing thick. Long years ago I put them in the back of my dress's.
I may change my mind and put these one in the long side instead of the end.
Not liking the lack of room to work in the end.
This was the only color they had in this size but that would be fine except for not having the room to work.
I planned on sewing it in and them moving my needle over to get right on the edge and then the color wouldn't show.
But having problems so I may take it out and start over.
It's a long time until Christmas decorating time . Thanks Goodness

Hi friends!
I had ordered some fusible interfacing a while back for just this purpose.
This fabric is prone to string so I am lining around the top with this so the zipper want hang up.
Got the first one all ready to try to put the zipper in.
Have a great weekend

Hi friends!
Working on making this into pillows.
I made a pillow to see how it would look, made it 13 by 17 but it  measured 13 by 19 but it works for what I needed it for. Of course the seam takes up some.
They are not going to be large pillows.
More like travelers pillows, I will text Abby and find out of she wants me to do it different.
They are going to be great pillows but just small. Of course if her men are like her Daddy a big one would just end up in the floor.
