I made a pillow cover, using the fabric I got at Ikea!
I am not a talented sewer and I'm too impatient to read overly complicated directions, so it was huge triumph for me to actually manage to install a zipper and have it work correctly. I was intimidated by the zipper foot initially, but I worked it out with only minor use of the seam ripper (to do: learn how to sew straight lines consistently).
Zipper - slightly hidden!
I actually did a little dance around the apartment once I finished this project.
i seriously cannot believe how well this turned out...if i were your current boss, i'd be a bit worried about a change of careers.ReplyDelete
The zipper looks great! I love that fabric... wanted some of it but had to pass.ReplyDelete
It wasn't the fabric that melted on me... it was the quilt insert I bought there. The outer layer is made of kind of that porous netting-type stuff... I should have known.
this is super cute!!ReplyDelete
Oh makes me feel like "skipper!"ReplyDelete
Looks ship shore fresh!
i love it! you should seriously start selling those. i feel like i say that to you all the time. i guess i'm just a businesswoman, and you are a "soul crafter."ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, this turned out great! SO CUTE! I have that IKEA fabric in my stash, waiting to be made into a tote bag for my Mom. I will post the results when I get around to it. In the meantime, I'm doing a victory dance on your behalf! Love the pillow!!ReplyDelete
this is great. i love your pillow!ReplyDelete
This is very encouraging...I, too, have been trying to get my mom's old machine out to tackle a few projects. I love this pillow, by the way!ReplyDelete
yay! i've been waiting to see what you came up with using those fabrics. and this looks absolutely fantastic, kudos to you!ReplyDelete
Oh Rachel!! You did a wonderful job -- zipper and all :) The pattern on the fabric you picked is great (who would have known that Ikea would be such a great source? I will definetly be scoping it out next time). Your journey into new decor pillows is turning out fabulous! YAY!ReplyDelete
What are instructions again? ;)
Will you make me one too?ReplyDelete
I love your pillows! Very impressed, zipper and all. I too enjoy Ikea fabrics...have been using them for simple totes, so fun.ReplyDelete
