Before I get to the pillow I have to share this picture with you! I pulled into a parking space at HomeGoods today (my second home my husband says) and from the corner of my eye, I thought I saw someone sitting in the driver’s seat in the Mercedes parked in front of me. Then I looked closer, and I started busting out laughing.
It wasn’t a person sitting in the car, it was a big ole dog! I guess he was ready to leave..
Ok, back to the post. Recently my daughter picked up two of these pillow covers at Ikea for $6 each. She wasn’t so hot on the bland brown color of them, but I told her for $6 you can’t go wrong, and they had a zipper closure to boot. Sure enough, she got them home and hated them. Feeling bad that I convinced her to get them and now she hated them, I decided to take the pillows home to my studio and see what I could do to pretty them up. I was debating on adding continuous ruffles to the front, or a large fabric flower in the middle, but it just wasn’t doing it for me. Since the rage right now is letters and numbers, which I am loving by the way, I decided to go that route. I already had the number stencils on hand which happen to be next to my damask stencil (imagine that!) so I used both.
