I have been taking some courses on Craftsy. A couple of weeks ago, I finished a project in the class. But it was only a "quilt top" piece, not a truly finished project. The course I took is called Stitch and Slash. It was a very good course and I confess that I didn't spend enough time working on this. I was so drawn in by the method that I just wanted to get started. Then I got it done and couldn't decide what to do with it. So I let it sit. But I wanted a project to do while I watched a couple of episodes of Doc Martin on Netflix.
So this evening I grabbed some fabric for backing. I cute and sewed the backing and made it into a pillow.
Of course the pillow form I had didn't fit. No, it couldn't be that easy could it? So I got some muslin and some poly fill and made the pillow form. I learned a second lesson - make the pillow form a little larger NOT a little smaller so that it really fills up the pillow cover. Ah well, live and learn. (and share, so someone else might not make the same mistake.) Overall, I think it looks okay. I am not really happy with all the choices I made along the way. Still it was a great learning project and I will do better on my next one.
The good news? I have a FINISH!
