I'm a big fan of re-using/ repurposing.
So anyone can sew a pillow right?
Take two old ugly pillows out the closet and re-use.
Pat myself on the back!!!
Because I'm making myself something new AND freeing up some
crap storage space.
I thought I just be able to sew new covers and pop them in.
Didn't work out.
I had only some smallish pieces of fabric left from the Ottoman redo.
So working with what I had left from the ottoman I sewed up two smaller pillows.
Then spent the next 10 minutes
wrestling turning them right side out.
Realizing that watching GH while I sew is not the smartest idea in the world.
Pillows are easy, but watching TV while doing it....
I sewed a bit too far, leaving the opening to turn the pillow a bit to small.
Hence all the wrestling (...and some cursing).
The really sad part of that.......
I did it twice.
That's TWO times.
Obviously GH turns me into a slack-jawed, mouth breather.
Apparently rendering me incapable of multi-tasking.
I cut open the old pillows, since they were now the wrong size.
Stuffed my new pillows through the too small opening.
(with a bit more cursing)
Pillows to match that revamped ottoman.
And, they were free!! Since I used scraps.
