Last week I shared some of my Christmas Tea Table Décor that I have put together. You can read about the chair covers here and the napkins here. I am working on eight cute little pillows to add to the chairs. My table theme is birds of a feather flock together.
My plan was to sew them, but when I removed my sewing machine from the closet the spool holder flew off and I can’t find it. I have ordered a new one, but need pillows done by Thursday night and I work all week. We decorate the tables Thursday night and Friday morning. They are judged on Friday afternoon and the winners are announced on Saturday morning during the tea/brunch. So no time to wait for a spool holder to be delivered by mail.
I am following the motto of Keep Calm Carry On and improvising by gluing the pillows together instead of sewing them. It is actually working out fine.
Here is one all done.
I think it is adorable.
Here’s how I made it.
I bought some sand bags.
I used my rotary cuter to cut the bag in the middle 10 inches wide.
The bag is sewn on each side. One thick seam and one regular one.
I glued upholstery webbing across the middle.
And then I stenciled a little bird on the corner.
I glued one edge shut and let it dry a bit and then added cotton stuffing, but not much. I glued the other end shut and ended up with a cute little decorative no sew pillow.
I have some larger potato sacks that I decided not to use for chair covers. I was thinking of doing a giveaway with some. Would anyone be remotely interested in winning them?
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my cute pillow. I have lots more posts coming up.
