Start of a pillow & will you be at the ASE?
Turquoise piping made by moi.
As you know I mainly sew garments and not much home dec.
The last home dec item I made was the Amy Butler mum pillow here from 2009.
I blogged about it here.
However I was inspired by this pillow tutorial on the Seasoned Homemaker's blog. So I started making an envelope pillow. I fused a lot of interfacing on Sunday to the pillow front and back. Last night I made piping following Leslie's piping directions here. Very fun. Making yer own piping is really easy. I am thinking I will put an asterisk on the pillow instead of a mustache or ampersand. But I might go for the ampersand...
Tomorrow I fly to the American Sewing Expo in Novi, MI for the third year in a row. I am excited to meet up with Bonnie and Lynnelle. I will be at the 9am blogger's meetup on Saturday morning and will be taking several classes and also shopping. I will be at the Friday night fashion show and Saturday Passion for Fashion. Unlike previous years I am not taking a computer with me, so no blogging from the ASE but I will tweet and of course fill you in on all the action afterward.
Hope to see you there!!! Now it's time for me to keep on procrastinating with the packing....
