I've had a pile of Eclectic Elements fabric for ages....for some reason, I ordered the fat eighths thinking I'd cut them up and piece them together for a wall hanging.
After a shopping trip to Hobby Lobby and seeing all the cool oblong pillows they had, I decided to give it a go and make one of my own.
This side has a piece from the Melange Collection of fat eighths...it worked perfectly!
I grabbed 3 bags of stuffing and took off to go "design."
I wanted some color, so I used the red newsprint piece on the sides
from the Documentation Collection.
I knew the 1/8s would need to be enlarged, so I started cutting 2" strips of 2 different patterns for the side pieces. This one's from Documentation, too.
After trimming to 2 main pieces to the same size, adding the side strips was easy.
The Leur de Froment with Butterflies and Moths is one of my favorites, so it is the front of my pillow. This piece is from the Melange Collection.
I'll use it at my computer chair to help correct my horrible posture when I'm working on the computer.
It really helps to keep me from bending forward...whatever works!
I'm still hoping to get to a wall hanging project....so watch this space if you'd like to see one of those from these great fabrics!
You can get the fat 1/8s from Inspiration Emporium, they're in stock right now, and don't forget to use my code iecain81 for 10% off your order.
