Mom and Dad got me a sewing machine for my birthday in December, and other than fixing headbands, shirts, pants, and backpacks, both for us and for our favorite friends, this is my first real crafty project. I have had this about half done for at least a month, but just never finished. Now that we are getting ready to move apartments, I realized that I should finish so I could pack up all the supplies. General Conference weekend was the perfect time, and now I have the satisfaction of seeing how crafty I am AND knowing that all that stuff is packed and ready to go.
This is the original that I found. You can find the tutorial here!
My version looks pretty much the same, but my photography skills are not quite up to that. Is it okay if I just blame it on the weird lights in our apartment and that I still not really know how to do more with a camera than just point and click? Awesome, that's why then.
Here it is on our bed. I also made the regular red pillow cases behind it. The best part of this whole project? The fact that you can go to IKEA and buy filler pillows for $1. For the flower pillow I just cut the pillow open, pulled some of the stuffing out, and sewed the side back up to the size I wanted. And I didn't even feel bad, 'cause it was a dollar.
