Double Sided Pillow

Hey y’all!!  How are you this fine day?

This months challenge was to make something that could be used two ways.  At first I thought I would make a reversible skirt for myself.  However, due to some unforeseen circumstances, I had to come up with something less time consuming.
Because, I have been working on making new pillow covers for our living room, I decided to make one for the challenge.

So here’s what I came up with.

I made a piece pillow cover.  I call it a double front pillow, because it doesn’t really have a back.  Both sides can be used as the front and are equally as cute.

I used the fabric scraps from Mindy Mae’s Market straitened them up {full tutorial on that} and sewed them together.
If you are looking for a good exercise in creativity, this is it!  It sure fun to pick out pieces that worked together out of the huge pile of scraps. It took a while to get them all lined up, but I’m glad I did.

 Some of the fabric is upholstery fabric (very thick) I have never sewn on that type of fabric.  I also used some new stitches on the edges of the flap.

 It’s my favorite pillow cover, by far.  I LOVE all the fabrics and especially the little buttons!  I’m sure you remember the drill from the last challenge.  I will be begging for votes over the next month.

Thanks for stoppin’ by and hangin’ out.
I will be linking up to these fantastic parties.

WoooooHoooo I won 2nd place thanks for voting!
