My children had a hole burning in their pockets so we had to spend a majority of yesterday shopping with Christmas money (even the 3 year old was excited to shop). That, of course, dipped into my sewing time so all I accomplished was this:
Aside from sifting through the stash to find ‘the right fabrics’ for another pillow, I also traced and fused the lettering to the pillow. Just a side note, if your fingernails are recently clipped or broken off, it’s extremely difficult to peel the paper backing off of Wonder Under. I think I spent more time trying to remove it than what I did on the project already!
Today it’s time to applique the letters and attach the boarder. Since the pillow looks like it might be a little small (short names definitely make for a more squarish shape), I’ve decided to make a thicker boarder so the pillow doesn’t look so puny once it’s finished. What is everyone else working on?
