Today, I finally got to do some crafting again. I'm working on an old knitting project I started more than 10 years ago. I was sitting on my couch, knitting beside my cat.. I felt like an Old Cat Lady especially since I've been having back problems this past week for no apparent reason... -_-.. lol. So after maybe 30 min or so I decided to do some sewing instead and came out with two new pillows! woohoo! But now I have no where to sit. My cat has decided to make my fleece throw and half my couch her permanent bed. I don't have the heart to kick her off. -_- So now I have one square to sit on as you can see.. I need to find her a new bed.
Anyways, the pillows!
The big square one is an envelope pillow case over a pillow form - very easy to make! I love the fabric though.. :) I'm pondering on making a second one with the same fabric.. maybe rectangular? hmm.
The small round one took me all day! So much cutting and pinning.. -_- and it didn't come out as nice as I had hoped but still pretty cool! I followed the tutorial for it on Cluck Cluck Sew (http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2011/03/tutorial-sprocket-pillows.html) I'm sure with some more practice with measurements and sewing it'll come out much nicer! :)
Next project: Cable knit scarf for boyfriend? :) http://www.spudandchloe.com/blog/2009/08/rambling-free-pattern/ ( I'm still working on the project from 10 years ago too) lol
