~ Red Gingham Pillow ~

When I was decorating throughout our home for the holiday season,
I needed a quick and easy pop of red for our bedroom.

{Red Gingham Pillow}

Now, it's been a little while since I had the sewing machine out....
But, I picked up this red & white gingham fabric at Hobby Lobby for $4.99/yd.
I only needed 1 yard and I managed to whip up 2 lumbar pillow covers in no time.

I think they added that simple touch of holiday to our bedroom.
I've always wanted to make pillows and maybe even sell my pillows someday.
Well...I have sold a few at Market Days in LeClaire before....see them here.
I think this little project has motivated me to get back to making some more pillows.
I intended on working on these last year. 
But my health took a lead role with my back issues and surgery.

Now that I am finally past all that!
Time to get back to business!
Hopefully you will be able to see some more pillows this Spring here on the ol blog.

  6. I have just recently gotten into making pillows and don't know what took me so long! I love this idea of yours to use red/white gingham! Very fresh and bright, without being too overpowering & not just a Christmas pillow either.
