Making it work

My dear husband ordered some pillows after watching an infomercial that are ridiculously long. I've had these red pillow cases for awhile and wanted to insert a strip with stitching in them, but was putting off having to measure how much to cut them down for the piece to fit while making it look right. But, with these new pillows, I actually needed that piece in there to make them fit. Win, win!

I started with the red pillow cases and some tan fabric.


I cut the hem off the pillow cases, cut out a strip of the tan fabric, and then put it all back together.

I stitched on each pillow case.

I really like the way they turned out and the way they look on the bed. Although, if I was doing them again, I would have actually traced some fancier letters on there instead of just winging it.

It makes me happy!!
