Pillow Fun!

Hello again! Seems so long since I posted. Even though my blog has been quiet, I have been busy, busy, busy. Son graduated and we had his party, grandparents came and then left (we had a blast with all of them!!) D#1 had her wisdom teeth removed and I have been making pillows for the future kitchen window seat. Right now we are using our antique church pew as the window seat. The first pillow that I made was a Dresdan plate pillow with pompom fringe. 
Arranging the spokes to see what works. This is Lori Holt's Bake Sale line. The pillows will match my placemats-placemat tutorial on previous post.

I didn't handstitch the plate on, I used the sewing machine b/c I know that these pillows will get a lot of abuse.

This is a pattern by Lori Holt. It is the Sew Hexie Pillow pattern. The hexies are all handstitched and handstitched on. This pillow is really hands on and takes a little longer than the Dresdan plate pillow, but it is sooooo worth it!!

Look how wonderfully it blends in with vintage kitchen stuff!

This one too!

I used Bake Sale fabric! I know it's had to tell on these little hexies but the center hexagon is cut out  of the fabric with the recipes on it. Sew cute!!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend,
