Charm Pack Pillow



Today I decided to return to working on my goal of "using things from my stash".  I wanted to make a bright pillow for the greatroom and remembered these leftover "charms".  They are from two charm packs that I purchased at a thrift store a few years ago.  I had previously make a tote for a swap on Fabric in Altered Art with some of the squares.  There were enough remaining squares to make both the front and back of the pillow.

After I finished sewing the squares, I remembered that I had purchased a large pack of fringe at the thrift store last year.  The color was perfect for the pillow.  I had a bag of stuffing in the closet and was able to finish the pillow this p.m.  I'm very pleased with the pillow and it now adds a bright spot in my greatroom.  Tomorrow I plan to make a coffee lover's pillow with left over "charms" from a coffee themed charm pack.

Very nice! I love the idea of using what you already have! Can't wait to see the coffee pillow.

Isn't it fun to make something out of the scrap bag or what's left over? It's one of my favorite ways to sit and sew, and I always feel so good about getting something for nothing. Cute pillow and the trim is perfect. Makes me want to go sew!
