DIY Sunday

Christmas Crafts Decorating Sewing

Christmas came early for me!  Carl picked up the exact sewing machine that I wanted (which he saw on my blog!) for me today!  I have been making some pillow covers for the pillows on our couch, and I was using hem tape….which worked, but wasn't fabulous!  So after he picked up my sewing maching (BOO-YA!), I went to work and covered 5 large pillows, made 2 placemat pillows and make a long oblong pillow.  The photos are crap (per usual) and don't really show was a difference the pillows make.  BUT, I'm giddy to have those F U G L Y pillows covered!

Not too exciting but soooooo much better!

I also painted my dining room chandy…..Carl installed dimmers and some more lighting!  Busy and productive day for sure!

    Did you use the same pillows and just make new covers? I may need to do that to some of my couch pillows. You did a great job and so did Carl!
