Yesterday, I was going through my closet and realized that I had 4 black t shirts that I never wear, have deodorant stains on the armpits, and are too small. So, I decided to make 2 pillows from 2 of them just for fun. I needed something a little extra on our bed.
Don't judge too harshly, I really have like no clue what I am doing sewing wise, and I had to stuff them with like 50 year old cotton batting stuff (my mom or grandmas old stuff that was passed on to me). So, it was a challenge. It didn't take long to make though, and didn't cost me a thing. I kinda like how they turned out! I am just glad I had old tshirts laying around and I didn't have to spend ANY money! So nice.
I plan to make one more exactly like the one with only one ruffle on it, and put it on the other side of the one with the 2 ruffles. I made the flowers in the middle out of felt.
I don't really like that the pillow with 2 ruffles doesn't have the ruffles come all the way down the pillow, but I didn't have enough of the same white material. So, it looks kinda goofy. But, it is what it is. Once I get the third one done, I think they will all come together nicely.
what do you think? I personally love the black and white theme of our room... so classy and pretty. Someday, we will make a headboard to put behind it... and have the walls painted... can't wait till we have our own house.
Hope you are all having a great week so far! 1 more day of freedom, and then more oral surgery. Not looking forward to getting my tooth pulled out and having a screw put in.. so keep me in your prayers that it will heal quickly and I can get back to work! (and talking, and singing.)
What's something you are working on right now?
