Okay, so yes I have been holding out on you. This was the kind of scenario in which I worked tirelessly to complete. I made a rug and pillows over a weekend in which the Olympics was watched. It was also one of those scenarios that whenever I had a moment to take photographs it was dark or dreary out...yup we have one of those houses that natural light rarely filters into.
So I knew that I wanted to make a rug and pillows. I picked up that beautiful/durable check fabric from an antique place for $10 (I'm unsure of the yardage but it must be like 5 yards?). I had been eyeing the fabric for sometime but didn't want to buy it for no reason. Finally the reason arose. I roughly followed these directions so that I could find some general instructions. Make sure when your picking out a fabric, that it is heavy duty material that has weight to it and won't fray or be damaged easily.
Design*Sponge directions in making these pillows, which was easy and took no time at all. PS: I've never used a zipper foot as I don't know where mine went for my ancient machine...so it can be done without a zipper foot.
plus fabric for these from Spoonflower and will match an ottoman that I recently recovered. I can't wait to finish all my pillows for the living room!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Please let me know if you have any questions! Enjoy!
