I’ve been continuing the process of redecorating the guest bedroom. There was a pillow on it that just kind of brought me down. You can catch a snippet of it in this photo right in front of the polka dot pillowcase.I chose to make a cover for that pillow by using the colors in the duvet and following the same basic shape of the design. The pillow is 18×18 so that is the size I wanted to make the cover. I actually sketched it out. I’m trying to plan a little better before cuttingInto my fabric. It turned out pretty close to my design. I sewed the top together then added wonky, wavy quilting lines and then I made an envelope closure backing from some IKEA fabric that I got a couple of years back.
It makes such a big difference in that room and matches that duvet beautifully!
This room is now as prepped for guests as it’s going to be. Those guests are family that will be spending a single night before we all pack in 2 cars and head to Nashville for a long weekend of celebration at my brother’s wedding. I will be bringing a camera, that I received for Christmas this last year, to try to get lots of family and festivity shots.
I have been contemplating a padded strap. Hello – perfect opportunity!
In the latest issue of Make Modern Magazine was a tutorial for a camera strap cover. What fabrics should I pick? Something bright and cheery or something I really love? I chose both! I had some charm packs of Horizon by Kate Spain in my stash. It’s one of my very favorite lines and has all my favorite colors included. I chose a few of these gorgeous squares and made a fabulous camera strap cover. It’s perfect and comfy and bright and cheerful. I just love it! The tutorial was super easy to follow. I’m looking forward to getting some great pictures of my brother and new sister-in-law and all the activities that we have planned.
I couldn’t pass up a Memorial Day sale happening at Quilters Square. I gave in and got this stash builders bundle of fabulous gray prints! They are going to work well for a plan I have in my head for later on in the year. And that text print should work great for the Text Me Mini Quilt Swap mini that I still need to start.
