The Pillow That I Shall Attempt


Here is the pillow that I will
attempt to make.
I have never made a pillow.
My sewing skills are minimal!
After reading some tutorials,
I think I should be able to handle it.

I saw this pillow at Arhaus and they want about $50
for it. I bought some linen on sale and a pillow
form on sale. I already have buttons.
This pillow should cost me about $10 to make.
I think it's worth the attempt.
It's going to sit on my master bedroom bed.
(Some day! Patience is a virtue, right?)
Toll Brothers are you reading this!?!
We've already waited 7 1/2 months for you
to sell one more unit. I know the economy
is bad but we will soon be losing money
waiting on you!

Ok, sorry for the venting.
I feel better, sort of.

Wish me luck on the pillow!
Have a great day!!!

You can totally do this Kim. Are you going to do an envelope back? I find that the easiest and have only ever attempted a zipper once in my life.

Be sure to show us when you are done.

Good luck! Pillows are so exspensive! I think it will take a little time to position the buttons. That will take some patience! A heart shape pillow would be really cute! Maybe a gift for someone special at Christmas. It would make a cute little bag, too. I have some extra drop cloth canvas that I could use to make one. My to-do list grows by the minute!
Don't worry about venting! We are all friends here!

I know you'll do a good job with the pillow! I tried making one by hand stitching... it was alright. Maybe next time I'll try it on a machine :)
Happy sewing!
