Pillow Talk

This little pillow was a thrifty 2.00 find I got at my local Goodwill.  Dont you just love going thrift shopping?

This pillow was calling to me saying, I would look so pretty spruced up sitting on your rocker in your outdoor space.

So I picked her up gave her a good look over and said OK you're coming home with me!

I then proceeded to ponder what I could do to dress her up a bit and give her more character.

Idea, burlap......Burlap is always a good addition to any project.

So I cut a 3 inch strip out of my burlap and pulled out the sewing machine although the sewing machine and I aren't that great together.

I mean, I have not done much sewing in years so I was not sure how to accomplish the ruffled vision I had in my head for this lonely little pillow friend.

Google is my best friend when I need to figure out how to do something, so to the PC I went.

Their I found out how simple making a quick ruffle was and so I began.

A few minutes later I had a beautiful ruffle to attach to my new find.

I grabbed the glue gun and got to gluing this ruffle onto my pillow.

It was a simple fix and now she adorns my rocker in my outdoor space with all her textured beauty.

I found another fab find .......this all so creamy throw to add to the back of the rocker to pair with my new pillow.  A great match dont ya think?

So friends, do you think I should add a cute flower of some sort to this pillow?  Or leave her be?

Until next time,
