First of all I need to apologize for some blog laziness. With getting back from vacation and jumping back into work, I have yet to figure out my blog/work routine. Thanks for bearing with me! So remember when I did the tray re-do? You can see it here. Well I had some fabric left from that and decided to make a new cover for a pillow on our bed. The pillow was okay, and we had gotten it with this tray at a silent auction. They matched, and both looked like a letter. A letter you would mail, not of the alphabet…..It looked fine on our bed, but I decided it was time for a change. What do you think?
I love the liquid stitch. I would love to sew more but I’m not there yet. I used the liquid stitch on my maxi dress last Saturday to fix a hem. While I was wearing it! Love it! Next I realized I could just remove the letter pillow cover and was left with the insert. I will keep the letter cover, it may work in an office or something.
And though that looked about right. I then made a hem around all sides to give me clean lines. You will have to imagine that because my camera battery died. I almost didn’t find the charger. It was still packed in my suitcase in case you were wondering.
So then I wrapped the fabric around the pillow again and joined the seams together on the side with the liquid stitch. I just had to glue a bit and pinch it together. I did this with the pillow inside so I could get a tight fit. I repeated on the sides. I was happy with the clean look of the seams.
I think it is a huge difference from the post office pillow. What do you think?
