pillow talk

one of my new classes in the new year is a great string pillow! it is very easy to make, and the results are uber rewarding. it looks like so much more, and you can totally impress people who don't sew by having them think it took you ages and ages. nice.

the collection of fabrics were not chosen by moi, but i seriously think anyone would think that i did. this is a sample for the class, with fabrics chosen by the lovely laura at spool. does she know me or what? yeah aqua!

so basically it's a paper pieced project. paper you say? yes i say. paper. by sewing to actual paper you have keep all your lines nice and straight and clean. (things i love, yet rarely maintain.) when you are all finished the project, the sewing you did creates perforations on the paper and it tears right off! so easily you go from this...

to this...

super neato cool. i know. there is actually a great little tutorial at filminthefridge, check it out. and if one was so inclined, the class schedule is available... now i have to go and make that amazing new anna maria free love emblem pillow!!!
