PHEW! I am exhausted! But I feel accomplished.
More orders will be going out on Monday and I finally am almost done my Christmas Crafting. I made my nieces Dress-Up Tutu's (I kind of want one!) last night out of about 10 yards of tulle each. Aren't they fun? Wouldn't you like to frolic and spin in one of these? I know I would.
Remember all of the hand-embellished linens I got from my mother-in-law? They have found new life as heirloom cushion covers. They are made out of 2 pillow cases with crocheted lace trim, embroidered placemats, handkerchiefs, and handmade doilies. I've combined the handiwork of myself, Dan's Great-Aunt, and his Grandmother. I am really in love with these. I hope the recipients like them as much as I do.
I made them envelope style with bridal buttons up the back. I have about 35 buttons to sew on tonight so I will keep this breif...
Knife Edge, envelope pillows are very simple to make and do not require a pattern - you can find simple tutorials for them online, or just wing-it (my method).
