Remember this cute Cloud 9 blanket
I made for my son? There is also a cute little bunting tutorial
. I'd show you the coordinating bunting I made for my son's room, but it's still not done and I started it almost a year ago. I have all the bunting pieces cut out and a few are even sewn together. After cutting all the pieces I was left with several scraps like this:
I knew the scraps could eventually be used for something and pillow month at Sew, Mama, Sew!
provided the perfect opportunity. I decided to use just the prints and played around with the pieces until I found a layout I liked:
I started sewing them together:
Until I had two panels:
At this point I forgot to stop sewing and take pictures. Basically, I evened up the edges of my panels and cut each panel in half lengthwise so I had four strips. I then arranged the strips until I found a pattern I liked and sewed the strips together:
I realize very few of the points match up correctly. I didn't start with pieces that had been precisely cut so I guess I couldn't expect much. I evened up the edges again and was pleasantly surprised to discover I had a 16 inch square. What are the chances of that happening? For my pillow top, I used my panel, a layer of cotton batting, and a layer of white muslin. The pillow back is a coordinating blue chambray. I used a 16-inch pillow form which made for a snug-fitting cover, but I like the end result.
Thanks for stopping by!
