I fell in love with Portia's Pillows and was inwardly bemoaning the fact I had no home that needed pillows; when it was suggested that I teach a class on them! I've never been so excited about class preparation! I used bright fabrics from the stash. The grow pillow was my first and the navy fabric decided it wanted to be a knit instead of a woven and slithered and stretched??? as I sewed. Since I was just recovering some of Mom's old pillows I wasn't too worried. These are going in our TV room to be sat and drooled on by little children. They are not going to care about its imperfections.
|It's already started to fray to give it that worn growing look!|
Then I decided since the class is for beginners and we are on a strict time frame I should probably make something that doesn't have a million curvy edges for them to stitch around. Since the class is called "Pillow Talk" maybe the focus should be on the letters and look like the advertising picture.
|Well, sorta like the advertising. I wasn't sure how these fabrics|
would work together but I really like the effect.
These sew up super quick and are really fun to put together. I had to keep a tight rein on the applique fiend that wanted to come out and add two million designs. Pinterest does not help with this addiction.
|Grow in Love my friends!|
