|Work in Progress Wednesday|

29 Jun



So for this installment of Work in Progress Wednesday I will be telling you about a three week project.

Recently Ive been trying to find a use for some adorable fabric I picked up from the Japanese import collection of Magumi Sakikibara at Birch a while ago that I had an abundance of. The pattern was sporadic and wouldn’t make sense for the type of product I create so I decided to make an accent pillow out of it.

The pillow part was easy. Heck, the whole thing would have been easy. Except…. All I had was cotton batting. And that doesn’t really work well when you’re stuffing a pillow. And I should know that, but I tried it anyway, cutting up the batting into little, unusable pieces which now I have no use for. What a waste of $3.99. So when I had a quick minute, I headed into Beverlys and bought some actual polyfill – you know, the kind of material you’re supposed to use to stuff a pillow with.

All I need to do now is stitch up the part where I stuffed it and tah dah! Accent pillow three weeks in the making! Not sure what to do with this one. Maybe Freebie Friday, maybe a contest, maybe sell it on Etsy? Who knows? Tell me, what do you want me to do with it?

    I’d say keep it so we can show it off at the house but I can’t wait for the fabric we found to become a pillow! Now that is going to be bad ass.

    […] For a bit now Ive been working on an accent pillow. It really should have taken me 20 minutes tops, but because I retardedly used cotton batting (please don’t ask me why, I do not have a good answer) instead of polyfill, I had to wait till I had time and a thought to grab polyfill so I could stuff it and finish. The pillow was featured in this weeks installment of Work in Progress Wednesday. […]
