Over at Domestically Speaking and the very next day I found a similar sweater at the Thrift store! I also found a black one with a really unique texture and the pillow forms....the pillow forms were 1/2 price and only cost .50 a piece!! That was all the inspiration that I needed! Here they are before:
.....Well there should be a picture HERE of the sweaters and pillow forms BUT some how it's been deleted from my camera! :(....
SO here they are AFTER:
I want to find swearters in hot pink and lime green and fuzzy to make to some for my daughters' room!
I wanted to make some to coordinate with my new bedding set, so I bought coordinating fabric, piping and I thought ribbon...but the ribbon was a fail, it was "off" just enough to be really bad, and it wasn't wide enough. :( So here are my pillows, inspired by, but not looking anything like, PB's. Just made with my two hands and my daughter's sewing machine! I haven't sewn in years! It was fun!
After sitting in the oral surgeon's office for two and a half hours only to learn that our insurance won't cover wisdom teeth removal at my daughter's age...I didn't have time to finish some of the other things I've got going. It was so nice outside today too, perfect for spray painting! Oh well, maybe tomorrow!
These pillows are "copy-cat" but since they are my first attempts at something PB inspired, . I thought I'd share over at Cottage Instincts . Check out her party for some more inspiring ideas!
