I’ve been challenging myself to get a little more familiar with my sewing machine. Sure, I can hem a skirt, or make VERY BASIC curtains, but other than that… I’m pretty clueless. It’s true.
So a couple days ago, I was browsing my OWN Pinterest page believe it or not (isn’t it so easy to pin something and never look at it again?), and I fell upon these adorable sprocket pillows I had pinned several months ago…
SO cute, right? Using Sew Cluck Sew’s tutorial (HERE), I got right to work! I decided to use fabric from some awesome vintage granny curtains (4 panels!) that my friend Wendy picked up for me at a garage sale for .50 cents. My friends know me so well! Major bargain, genuine vintage… AND it’s orange!! Also, it smells like granny. My fave.
I followed Allison’s Tutorial to the letter… and she laid it out so simply and easy, even the most clueless beginner (ME!) can pull this one off!! I took some progression photos so you could see how obnoxiously easy it really is…
It turned out a little rough, but I’m still super proud of myself! And I think I’ll be making more of these in the near future!
Are you “sew” proud of me? OK… wow. I did just say that. Yep.
Next time I’m going to use a larger button I think.
Delly loves it.
Have you guys actually tackled anything of the DIY variety from your Pinterest? Do you share in my Pinterest guilt for pinning-and-then-forgetting-all-about-it?
