First of all, sorry for the delay but Tutorial Tuesday #3 will be posted tomorrow. Hope you will forgive me :)
What I wanted to show you today (just that you show you that I still sew from time to time ;) ) are 3 pillows which I made for my dad. Last days I have troubles to sew anything... I don't know if it's the weather or simply the lack of any particular ideas... I have few things started and not finished. I wanted to finish those pillows as fast as I had the mood to do it, otherwise they would end as another UFOs (that's why the delay with TT#3).
When last time I was ordering some fabric from Fat Quarter Shop, I spotted 'Off the hook' twice the charm from Dan Morris for RJR Fabrics:
Imediately I thought about my father who loves fishing and already said to me once, that I could sew him something with the fish motive. These are not the kind of fabrics that I usually use (nor the colours), but dad is dad ;) You know...
I made the pillows simple. I know he wouldn't like anything fancy, besides, I wanted to leave as big pieces of fabric as I could without cutting the print. Pillows are 40x40cm, I used all the fabric which I got in the roll. It was enough for three fronts and a stripe on the back of each pillow. The rest of the back is made of beige corduroy. Pillows are zipped (I tried my best to sew invisible zippers, but I failed... I think I could give lessons on 'How NOT to sew the invisible zipper' -.-' Well, the most important thing is that they work).
See you tomorrow!
