DIY: Button-Closed Pillow

I love throw pillows. They are a great way to liven up a room in an instant. The pillows I have made have been very simple, so I wanted to step it up just a tiny bit. Debbie told me it's quite easy to make a pillow slip cover, instead of doing it my way, which is to sew a case directly onto the pillow insert.

This was my first attempt. I plan to try it again very soon and work out the little problems I came across. Overall though, it was a lot of fun!


***Okay, I started writing out the instructions, and even I was getting confused, and I already made it. So...if you want to know how to do this, send me an email or write it in the comments. I'll work on some clearer instructions.

  2. Wow, Can! It's beautiful! Is the bird inlaid in the fabric or is it applique? I love the background fabric that you chose too. You forgot to call me though to tell me that you were crafting. ;) I have LOTS of crocheting to do before the end of the year and I love to do it with company. I won't put all the pressure on you though...I will call you when I have craft time!
