The City Quilter in NYC has amazing NYC fabric that they designed. I leave for Australia on Monday and will be shop hopping with someone I met on this blog and wanted to bring her a gift. So, I made her a NYC themed pillow.
I liked the pillow so much when done, that I made five more. Honestly, these are so easy to make. Simply cut a 14.5″ square of a fun fabric for the front, and two pieces of fabric for the back 14.5″ x 10″ each. Fold one long side of the back fabric twice, and stitch to hid the raw edge. Then, layer the two pieces for the back, right sides of the backs with the focus fabric and sew around the edges with a 1/4″ seam. Turn inside out, poke your corners, and you have a terrific pillow case that you can take off the form to wash and dry.
I realize that Jane will see this post, but I had nothing else to write about (hi Jane! Can’t wait for Thursday!).
In the meantime, I also finished my, “All dressed up and ready to go” pillow from last weekend. I think the outer border should have been wider but I still like how it came out.
