Last weekend I manged to finish the second "baby" oblong pillow. It had been sitting there waiting for me to receive my new cording foot. It worked like a dream! I sleep with one of these "baby" pillows every night. A couple of weeks ago I made the first one. The old one was so ratty after sleeping with it for about three years. I found a white matelasse pillow sham at the thrift store a while ago and purchased it with this in mind. This sham looked brand new right out of a package. After a run through the washer and dryer on hot, (I like to make sure everything has been sterilized and shrunk before I sew it) I cut both the pillows out. The first one was done quickly because I needed it to sleep on. The other one sat there for a while waiting to try out my new cording foot.
I love having the matched pair on my bed. Boy my bed looks really wrinkled in this picture. I really don't think it looks that bad in real life! At least I hope not!
Well, back to my chair reupholstering!
