Pillow Cover Sewing

 At the beginning of summer I decided to update some old throw pillows by making new pillow pocket covers.
I am absolutely not a great experienced seamstress, but I'm very proud of my measly accomplishments at using a sewing machine!!! :-)
I have been updating some of our summer home look cheaply.  By cheaply I mean trying not to spend too much, but still be able to have quality decor...LOL!!!
This green checked pocket cover is hiding a very ugly outdated color pillow.
 I stop at this nearby Thrift Store which is super clean and well organized, and things sell out quickly.  I stop at least twice a month, and check their craft/hobby/sewing area.  I usually never come home empty handed.  If there is a fabric that I love, I better get it, or it's gone if I decide to go back and buy it later.  Most of the upholstery fabric is good quality by well known manufacturers.  The bundles are usually 2 or more yards for under $5.00!

Currently I have about 5-6 yards of fabric that I need to sew into more home projects, but I haven't been able to find the time to do so!  Or it could be that the weather is so perfect and beautiful, that I don't want to miss a second of it by being indoors.

  2. Your pillow covers are so pretty and the pockets give them even more personality. I know what you mean about not wanting to be indoors. The weather is just too nice, so I'm about to go for a nice long walk... :)

  4. Sew cute! And they look so pretty on your bench! We don't have anyplace to get good cheap fabric any more. I used to go to a store that had a whole room with fabric that was 1-2 dollars a yard but the owner retired and closed the store. :-(

    1. Thank you!
      We had the same thing happen here. One summer I discovered this fabric store really close by, but by the following summer, I went shopping there and found out the place closed :-(

  5. Cheap fabric is so hard to find, isn't it? You scored and you did a great job with the sewing. I love the way they look against that quilt! :)
