For FNSI, I worked on making 2 new pillows for our living room. We recently hung new curtains and I wanted to add some more contemporary throw pillows. I didn't want square pillows but I couldn't find pillow forms in the size I wanted so I bought a child size body pillow (15" x 36"). I then cut that down in half to make 2 - 15" x 18" pillows. Using some left over fabric from curtains I made for my daughter's room, I cut 1 - 15.5" x 18.5" and 2 - 15.5" x 14" pieces for each pillow. Using my computer, I printed the words family and friends onto some coordinating fabric from my stash. I then cut those letters out and fused them to the right side of the 15.5" x 18.5" piece of fabric and then machine appliqued around each letter.
I then stitched the backing pieces (overlapped) and the front piece together and stuffed the pillow forms in and they were done! I really how they like the look!
The charcoal gray gives a little update to my pink and blue (a little outdated) room. This will have to do until we can afford something else. I'm happy with it!
There was still some evening left so I continued working on my stitchery needle case from Kaaren over at The Painted Quilt. I'm loving it. Only a peek as it is not yet done as you can see!
Now I will be spending some time visiting other FNSI blogs to see what you all have been creating!
