I stopped by Jo-Ann’s the other night and there was a sale, which was awesome. I went without my Mom, though, which was not awesome. It took me forever to make any decisions! Which fabric is the best? Is 1 yard enough? Is this a good price? I swear I stood there staring at the green fabrics for 20 minutes! I got some stuff that I’m really excited about, though. One thing I’ve been wanting to try for a while now is piping. So I picked some up and here is the pillow I made:
I cut out the pieces for the pillow like usual:
Then I used the piping around the edges. I totally just winged it here…
It was really hard for me to sew right next to the bump on the piping. At first I didn’t sew close enough and it looked horrible. I finally figured it out, though, and it turned out pretty good.
The corners were kind of tricky too. Not to mention, I probably should’ve waited for my Mom so I could get a quick lesson on how to start and stop the piping so it didn’t end up looking like this:
Oops! I think I probably should’ve folded the piping in?? I think this gives it character, though. I’ll keep telling myself that at least….
I picked up a few other things that I am excited about, including this Jelly Roll to do another Pleated Spiral Pillow:
It was originally $12.99. But it was 40% off, so I got it for $7.80
