Making a patchwork pillow cover has been on my December to-do list…and I’m glad (and amazed) I got it done with 2 weeks to enjoy it!
I was feeling mighty ba-humbug a few mornings ago…for no reason…just feeling bleh. So I got my grouchy self ready, cleaned my house, and sat down at my sewing machine. After a few minutes I felt a hundred times better. A clean house + a little sewing time makes all the difference.
The pillow cover is made with 2 1/2″ squares…100 squares (10 x 10) makes a perfect 20″ pillow cover. I strip pieced the squares (sew 2 1/2″ strips together…then cut the strip sets into 2 1/2” strips) so despite its appearance its actually a really fast project.
With the scraps we decorated dollar store ornaments using Modge Podge (I saw the tutorial here).
It was a huge mess…
…but they loved it and it’s sure fun to have boys that love to craft with me!
