Why hello there! Today I am happy to be a stop on Jennifer Sampou's SHIMMER blog hop!
feather pattern. That was the light bulb moment I was waiting for. (It's always fun when that happens!)
original pattern so that 3 of them would fit on a pillow cover. I foundation pieced the shimmer fabric unto paper, then proceeded to assemble the feathers, figuring out the rest of the dimensions on the fly. It was a little trickier that I thought it would be-with all those angles-but nothing a little stitch ripping couldn't solve.
threads to bury. But it was worth it in the end!
envelope backing with this fabulous olive colored fabric from my stash. I sewed a double line of stitching on the edge of the closure for a more tailored finish. I really like it! I'm sure I will be revisiting that detail again soon. (The only drawback about working with dark fabrics is all the lint it attracts, but what are you gonna do?)
The pillow measures 20" square. (It's so weird! Usually my projects are made from scraps. I'm so used to counting them toward my 101! Ha!)
Since this is a blog hop, you know there has to be a giveaway!
Happy Monday to you!
