more pillows


As I type this, I am enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee and some yummy banana bread, without hearing "mommy" a million times or having to go fix the Thomas train track again. Isaiah is at his third day of preschool, and while it is an odd feeling not to have him here, I am really enjoying my free time during the day. It has also allowed me to be really productive when it comes to sewing. I just love sewing during the day with only the natural sunlight, something I miss out on when Isaiah is here (not that I'm complaining about being home with him, because I love it). Sewing now feels less like a chore or a job and more like a fun activity. Which is the way it should be.



I've been having a lot of fun making pillows with the $1.49 pillow forms from IKEA. Seriously, how can you beat $1.49?? I made these two on Thursday while Isaiah was at school. They are really quick and fun to make. Plus, I love that you only need a small amount of fabric. That way I can use my favorites, but not feel like I'm using them all up. You know what I mean? I'm sure I'll be making more of these today, so please forgive me if I post these everyday.

Those are so cute! I may have to try it out with some scraps that I can't get myself to throw away. But I have had for ever.

I love the pillows! They are fabulous. And I know what you mean about the train track thing. How many times a day do they have to come apart? And why can't these little guys fix it themselves? Drives. Me. Crazy. (In a loving way, of course :))

You're right - sewing should be enjoyable and I'm glad you are doing just that! You deserve it!

Super cute! I wish we had an ikea, I've never been to one. I feel like I'm stuck in the 90's or something, lol.
