Scrappy Pillow

Sometimes the most simple thing can bring the greatest pleasure!


I received the cutest little packet of 2.5 square charms from my Schnitzle and Boo mini Swap. 


They are from Treehouse Textiles in Australia. My partner is from there!

I hung them up on my draw erase board with a magnetic clip. Stared at them daily and thought of a million things to do with them and a pillow seemed the best one. 
 

I played around with them and decided to do a rainbow order, of sorts. 


I had four extra charms and just raw appliqu├ęs them on the back. They belonged with their friends on the front, not in my scrap bins. 



I tackled a hidden zipper. No more envelope backs for me. 



And who doesn't like a black and white binding that pretends to be piping? 



The big problem?  


It makes my undersized loveseat sad looking in comparison. Good thing I bought a slipcover I'm going to reconstruct for it!!!!!

Happy Finish it Friday!

  2. Heidi,
    I love your pillow and your 3/4 seat.
    I want one, so my husband and I can share it, together.
