My original plan was to make this fax pleated pillow but then realized V started with strips of fabric and I really didn't want to cut up my fabric because it would mean spending a lot more time on the project. So I googled pleated pillow and came up with this one. I was all set to start it last night. As I was scrolling down the tutorial I saw a different pillow at the bottom of the post. I clicked on that and knew that was the one I was going to make.
I tucked Mickey into bed last night and got to work. I was up until 2 am. I was on a sewing high. I didn't get it all done (the measuring took me a while) so I finished it today.
What do you think?
I think it looks great. (It's not as vibrant in person but when I edited the picture it made everything else look wrong.) I like it with the brown pillow and the chenille blanket. Now I have to make one more and the window seat should look a lot cozier. Here's the tutorial if you want to make one too.
In other news the kids were out of school today. I wasn't really looking forward to it (the bickering and trying to keep them from being in front of the tv/computer all day) so I invited some of our friends over. We all had a great time. The weather was nice enough that the kids played outside for a while. We pigged out on pizza, fruit, chocolate milk, and rice krispie treats. We'll have to do it again on the next day off.
