Next week details - this week I have been sewing. And, I have to say the pillows look fantastic. I mean, I would actually consider spending my own money on these pillows. This is HUGE because most everyone knows I don't spend much money on myself these days. Necessities only. I am thinking that after this week, Dairy Store ice cream from MSU might be a future necessity - we have been postponing our trip to the Motherland due to weather and there is just no excuse for not going this weekend. I digress. The pillows are fabulous but there is an exception: The butterfly fabric is so hard to work with due to the pattern. If I pin my pattern and it is just a little off or when I cut, I cut just a little off, the whole pillow is askew just enough to make me angry. Grrrrrr.....so, I am not going to sell these pillows. In conjunction to opening my Etsy store at the end of the month, I am going to giveaway my "oops" butterfly pillows. You will have to actually "Like" my Facebook page to qualify since that is where the contest will take place. Stay tuned for more information.

The fabric is a sturdier home decorator fabric.

|"Oops" pillow that still needs a lot of work. I sewed the outside panel outside |
of the pillow, instead of inside. Can you say seam ripper?
|Four awesome pillows and two "oops" pillows getting ready to find a new home. |
And yes, I need to work on staging these guys a little bit better.
I am going to make this short, just thought I would share with you an update on what I have been working on lately. This weekend, I am planning on spending lot of quality time with my family and sewing machine so more pillow to come. Hope you enjoyed the photos of the pillows. More to come...
