I started to make a pillow, really I did, and the next thing I knew I had a Valentine table runner.
What the heck! Do you veer off and have that kind of thing happen to you, too?
Here's the story of the pillow turned runner:
A couple of days ago...
As I was snuggled under a warm quilt looking at a couple of blogs on my computer, I saw a really
cool pillow at 5 Little Monsters. It had a glittery heart on black and white striped fabric.
I had black and white striped fabric and Deco Foil for the heart. I could make this!
I realized that, yes, I did have black and white striped fabric, but not enough.
No problem! I'll just border it with some other fabric to make it the right size.
But, I needed to run to town before I started sewing.
There was a store next to the store I was shopping at.
Are those shiny objects in the window? Yep!
There IT was, calling my name.
It was red like my couch, about 2 feet long, and made of heavy wood.
My coffee table needed this, I'm sure of it.
Poor thing looks a little pathetic and lonely on my black table.
Decision made...no heart pillow, I'm making a table runner!
Finished the runner this morning by stitching in the ditch and around the hearts.
Quick and easy!
A day trip with the hubby to take photos...fun!
This photo kind of picks up the shine.
I ran my ThermOWeb Hot Melt Adhesive and Deco Foil through my laminator to make the hearts.
No photos of that process, sorry, but here's a cute video to watch using an iron, not a laminator.
The daughter of Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy made it...adorable and informative!
Of course, my red long bowl needed a photo shoot, too. Now it just needs to be
filled with something and set out on my new table runner that was meant to be a pillow.
Happy sewing to you!
