I made some happy little pillow covers and am thrilled to share the results. I was especially pleased with my pieced rectangle cover! I also hemmed a TON of curtain panels, so it was nice when the recipient called me today to say he was grateful and so impressed with all the work, phew!
The pillows are made from some cute Ikea fabric and leftover curtain remnants. The brown velvet curtains were great to work with...the stupid sheers...not so much.
You get what you pay for at Ikea, and the cheapy Wilma sheers are no exception. They made my life miserable for several days...cutting straight (when they weren't even straight to begin with!) and sewing such thin stuff...ugh, so glad it's over! (like our rockin' 70's stone floors? ha!)
I have to say the frustration with the sheers made me a little nervous to work with thin and slippery fabrics, anybody have any tips? I bought some rayon-ish stuff to attempt a clothing item and now I'm nervous I'll wreck the fabric!
