I've been making pillows for the Sweet Lime using just what I can find in my scrap pile and no design in mind, just cut as I go and see what happens.
The first one I made from pieces of an old sheet and some lime green hand dyed scraps left over from I don't remember what project but it's perfect! I embroidered some vines and leaves and voila!
The second (front) I made today from various scraps and I tried free motion sewing on my machine and got terrifically frustrated and wound up sewing lines up and down and added some circles atop and I love the way the fabric puckered a little bit and makes it look likes it quilted.
This one I made from old jeans and other scraps last year.
And then there's the whale pillow made from an old navy blue fleece jacket. He's the perfect back and neck pillow for reading in bed.
You would think the button pillow isn't comfortable but au contraire mon fraire, turn it around and it's a perfect head to rest my little head on when watching movies.
A simple stitched bird on muslin, gift for a friend.
A nice reminder stitched on an old linen table cloth.
There are more but I've run out of time!
I've got to make dinner. Tonight I'm trying a recipe from Molly Wizenberg's book
A Homemade Life. It's called Bouchons Au Thon. The book is charming me and I am looking forward to these "tuna corks"
