You may recall my thrift store stack of a couple of weeks ago. In there was a pink cashmere sweater. Beautiful. Small. For some reason I thought of my sweater Sunday night, after everyone else was asleep, and realized I had pink thread in the sewing machine. Ten minutes later the pillow was finished. It is 14 inches square but the 14 inch pillow form looked wimpy; so I stuffed in a 16 inch pillow. Nothing fancy but I think it will look great on my bed when I get the pink red green sampler quilt finished.
This pillow I made about 4 years ago. I used a .99 velour shirt that was perfect but a turtle neck (I can't stand to have anything around my neck). So I enlarged the letter S in Word and printed it backwards then sewed through the paper on the wrongside of the pillow with a piece of batting between the paper and the velour; then trimmed the batting out around the S. The fringe was from a 40% off sale at Hobby Lobby. I have pictured a pale pink version here and this pillow with another green one here.
My all time favorite pillow though is blogged about here. But here's a picture. I have posted and pictured more pillows (check my side bar under pillows) since I started blogging. I'm inspired to make many more after seeing what some of ya'll have come up with through Kari and Kijsa's pillow parade. Go ahead and look at the beautiful pillows around blog land.
