Yay! I finished my April pillow, Aqua Urban Seaweed. I really tried to have it ready for Wendy’s monthly round up, however, I’m just pleased that it’s completed!
My sister was visiting from England in April, and one of her big requests was to visit our local fabric shop Birch (known by some of you by its online name fabricworm.com). Love, love, love their fabric! So, while Susan was trying to figure out how much fabric she could acquire without exceeding her 50 lb. luggage limit, I was going turquoise/aqua CRAZY. I decided to use my fab new fabrics to coordinate with my Life AQUAtic (soon to be completed).
I had picked up a fat quarter of Birch Organic Fabrics, Ipanema, and decided to use it on the back in honor of my husband, who loves all things surf/beachy. I have to admit that I love the back just as much as the front! (I could have saved myself a lot of time, haha). And also added the hidden zipper from Wendy’s tutorial.
Wonderful - both front and back! What a great finish. Pinning this.
I just purchased a fq "bees knees" bundle from fabricworm that may end up in a pillow. Or I might get more fabric for mother's day and have enough for a quilt. I have overheard interesting hints.
Love your fabrics, especially the back
Ahh, you are so lucky to have fabricworm as your LQS!!!! Love aqua as well and especially the back of this pillow. So cute!
Love it - looks fab on your chair as well. Great job! I need to visit more often to inspire your fabric purchases :-)
Gorgeous and I just LOVE the back fabric. Must get some....
Great fabrics...front and back- super job with this!
Readerowl Thank you! The "bees knees" is a great little bundle...crossing fingers for tomorrow :-)
Terryt1955 I had no idea that the fabricworm was so popular until my sister mentioned it - its only 2 miles from my house, but I try not to drop in very often or I get into trouble! and thanks :)
Sewhappy Thanks Sue! and you definitely need to visit MORE often! or maybe I should travel across the pond to see you :-)
Tess is leaving for Spain tomorrow...then one month till she visits you!
