Ugh! That is the best word I can think of to sum up my first experience making a pillow. It is really my own fault. I know better than to cut, quilt and trim before making certain that it will fit the pillow insert. It did not fit the pillow insert. Not even close. Like 6 inches off people! I was not thinking straight.
I bought these lovely down filled pillow forms to make covers for and in the end I had to make my own by cutting some muslin and stuffing it with poly fill and sewing it shut. I was not a happy camper.
Then, when I went to bind it, something went wrong and I had to rip most of that out and start over. Then when it was done I noticed that the iron had made a big yellow mark on my embroidery cloth. I ended up having to wash it and then use a bleach pen to get it out.
I am just glad it is done. I learned a lot from making this and know what mistakes I will not make next time. Maybe I should have followed a tutorial instead of just trying to wing it. Oh well. I think it turned out pretty cute anyhow.
I have also been working on the fabric wall and it is coming along nicely! Just a few more hoops to go.
How is your monday going?
