Pillow for the Coffee Lover





I finished this pillow last week but had to wait until the weekend to add stuffing.  It seems that WalMart no longer carries the stuffing that I used to stuff the last pillow.  It was called Cluster Stuff by Morning Glory.  I purchased it at WalMart a few months ago and loved the down-like feel it gave to the pillow.  So I had to settle for regular stuffing.  Here is the finished pillow.

It is one of my "using my stash projects".  The squares and backing fabric are left over from  a quilt kit I purchased last year from Fat Quarter Shop.  The kit was called "Cherry on Top" and was made from this coffee themed fabric.  I find that the Fat Quarter Shop's kits often have left over fabric. The fringe is another of my thrift store purchases.   I'm thinking this will become a gift for a coffee lover in the family. 

Here's a photo of the little quilt made from the fabric.

Hi Pam,
Thank you for stopping by for tea. I so envy anyone, like yourself, who can sew! Unfortunately, I never really took an interest in it. These days, I would love to have a sewing machine because there are so many cute things I would love to make for my home. Hope you are having a wonderful day.

Blessings,
Sandi
