More Sewing

What does a girl do while listening to the new Madonna CD-Hard Candy? Well she sews up some funky pillows for the front porch.


I just played around with the cutting strips and sewing them together, my first attempt can be seen below. The fabric was in the stash.



The fabric is the same fabric used for the lining in Neighbor girl's bag:




No you aren't having an acid trip! This is my second pillow and aren't those fabrics just wild?



The rainbow fabric makes me smile. I want to cover everything I own with it.



These pillows will be on the porch. I don't expect them to last very long but they are good practice and I enjoyed making them. I never thought I'd say I enjoyed anything about sewing.

Great pillows! And are those the throw away wicker chairs? Very nice.

And I really liked your bag, I'm going to try making up one of those rag quilts just like the bag. Who knows if I succeed maybe I'll try a bag next.

Congrats on your pillow making, Melissa. As I was reading your post I thought "She said she's not a seamstress (not using the word "sewer" LOL)" Good for you, girl!!

Great pillows! That rainbow fabric reminds me of the rainbow comforter I had when I was in elementary school. I had a rainbow painted on the wall of my bedroom too (to match, of course)!
