I try to do a couple little valentine projects each year. This year I made my Mother a pillow for Christmas, seen here, so I decided to make a pillow cover for the same pillow form for Valentine's day. I also had an idea for years that I wanted to try.
It was much easier to sew than the bigger chenille I made last spring, seen here, But I won't know if it worked until it comes out of the dryer. It was harder to cut, each time I came to a spot where the under flannel was cut I had to use my scissors to get it started. Word to the wise; look at the left side, see the pink sticking out? Next time make sure the lowest layer is bigger on 2 adjacent sides. It made it MUCH easier to slip the edge of the scissors and the rotary cutter under the top 3 but above the bottom layer there.
Here is is finshed;
Since the pillow form it covers is in Colorado I draped it over a folded up quilt. Love it! I think I will make another! I love the feel of the chenille. I put a zipper in the back; yeah another zipper used but I have neglected to mention that I visited an estate sale and bought 10 new zippers. So my numbers went up a bit. I like the large flap that covers this zipper.
