Pillow Talk

Blogger's Pillow Party

I am participating in a Pillow Party! This month, it's being judged by Anna from Noodlehead. I've never participated in something like this, but I actually have a pillow to share.

This pillow is directly inspired from Cluck, Cluck, Sew. I used a soft white corduroy instead of a home decorating fabric and I used much more than 7 yards in my strip. I estimated around 10 but I wouldn't be surprised if it was 11 or 12. I intended for it to be just blue, green and yellow but when I reached the end of the yellow, I was very far from the center.

So I decided to continue with the color and ended up with a rainbow. I filled it up with poly-fill and sewed it shut. I should give it away but I love it! Sadly, I live in such a small place that I do not have a good spot to put it. Unless I'm willing to let CS sleep on it, or Jacob throw it to the floor. Someday, I will have enough space to decorate and I would love to set this on a pretty little antique chair next to the front door.

I love that cropped picture of your rainbow ruffles!

P.S. If you copy/paste the button code into the "edit html" tab of your post, it won't show up with that funny box around it =)

I LOVE the pillow! If you love it, you should keep it too. I have a few things that I have reserved for when I have a house that they will fit in!
