Day 9 - Something You're Proud of in the Last Few Days
Well, this is easy. I'm proud of my mad sewing skills.
Making this pillow was by no means an original idea. Complete credit for this idea goes to the Sew English Etsy Shop. This is their version:
I originally saw this pillow somewhere in blogland, but I can't remember where, and was instantly enamored with its blatant message. Right now, I live alone...but I know it won't always be that way...so I figured I might as well have an off color pillow in my bedroom while I still can. As much as I would love to spend more than $50 on a pillow cover, I decided I would rather be able to eat for a week, so I decided to make my own.
I got out my handy-dandy-hand-me-down sewing machine which is missing the front piece. Its a Brother from my Grandmother. Not the prettiest anymore, but it does what I needed it to. I sewed a simple envelope back pillow using white cotton. Next, I ironed on some felt letters that I picked up at Hobby Lobby using a 40% off coupon. After ironing, I finished sewing the pillow together and placed it lovingly on my thrift store Bentwood Chair
