bed pillows

 for the longest time I wanted to make some bed pillows but never made any time. I have seen some really cute burlap pillows that I wanna make....And what better timing?  Over at  DIY SHOW OFF  they are having a linky party to show off all your burlap projects and more!


So, on with my pillows...
I have had these pillows forever, I picked them up from ikea...99 cents each!
They are pretty flat but when you fold them in half its perfect. I have one of these inside this pillow that I made.
back to the design of my pillow...I think i bought the wrong color of burlap, it's too dark :(

And I think the letters are too big? It just doesn't look right on my bed...see for yourself...

So I like the pillows but they are a big eye sore on my bed...they just don't belong :( 
Another vision taking a wrong turn!
It would probably be okay with darker bedding but I want my whole room to be white with  different textures. I think I will cover up the Mr and MRS with some ruffles and put them in my living room and start over...but hey, its another reason to make another pillow!! I think I will try the next one with a light linen or maybe some lighter burlap, however it may take another year before I get to it again...I have a short attention span and need to jump from project to project.
Thanks for stopping by, I'm linking to these parties:

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
