Hand-sewing the doily to the fabric
Saturday night K and I watched a movie, and since I have a hard time keeping my hands still, I worked on sewing this doily to this lovely, nubby, undyed cotton fabric. The doily is my favorite of the ones we used as wedding decorations.
Doily pillow (I love you, doily pillow!)
My mom came over yesterday to help me sew this envelope-back pillow cover. I am so happy with how it turned out. It's not a hard pattern, but I have so little experience that I get nervous just turning on my sewing machine. We used this pattern from Apartment Therapy, which only requires sewing straight lines, so anyone with basic sewing skills should be able to manage. I made it, after all. I've got lots more doilies leftover from the wedding and some extra fabric, so I plan on making more pillows like this. It'll be good to get more sewing experience, plus I just think they're pretty.
