It's all about the wonky...

I have been wanting to make a pillow for Jack, to match his quilt. I have had wonky lines on the brain, so I thought this would be a good project for it.

I loved every second of making this. It is such a fun way to sew. There is a great tutorial here, if you are interested.



I did not have enough of one fabric to make the back, so I used three different ones. It is a sham, so the cover can be removed and washed. I added the third piece in there, by sewing it on the inside of the brown checkered fabric. I love the way it came out.

My sister asked me to make her some pillows for a window seat she has in her apartment. She told me the crazier the better! That means more wonky sewing for me!

I love the wonky, too. How fun to make some pillows for your sister. What colors are you using??

I love the fabrics you chose! It is funny, I recognize some of the same fabrics from my stash-great minds think alike, huh!?! I just made Ava a birthday crib quilt with the Heather Ross babushkah doll fabric, and my sister's Christmas gift is made from the green horse fabric-what a coincidence!

Oooo, lovely!
In response to your previous post, I too adore Fall. The early evenings, crunchy leaves, and the warmth of home.
Your house is lovely!
