Flowers, anyone?


This weekend, I took some fabric that I found on sale and made a pillow for our bedroom.




I had been kind of putting it off because I kept wanting to wait until I could learn how to sew a zipper. But I finally realized that it may be a while until I know how to sew a zipper into a pillow (and do it well), so I decided to try an envelope closure which is much easier.



I'm really pleased with how it turned out! It's floral, yes... but I like how it pairs with the olive drab army blanket on our bed. Brings a little feminine to that masculine blanket.

You did such a great job! I used to know how to sew these...like in sixth grade and now I'm dying to have my mom ship out my sewing machine so I can re-learn. Hmmmm.... Oh and leopard with the floral---GORGEOUS.
