Is Last Minute Okay?

I've felt like I've been living in the twilight zone the last week and a half (5 days of fever and now I'm recovering from a sinus infection, ugh!).  I've been bummed that I haven't been able to sew much lately. I really wanted to sew a pillow for Stitched in Color's pillow party.

Blogger's Pillow Party
 
If there's anything my house really needs it's more pillows. I'm a slacker in the home decor department. I figure this pillow party is a good way to get a few more pillows into my house.  If you know me...I need a deadline to finish anything.  So today's the last day to link up and I cranked out a pillow so I could.  I copied creative Liz over at Made on Maple and made a Round of Applause pillow.


I've wanted one of these for a very long time, and it's not all Anna Maria Horner fabrics but I'm so glad I finally made one.



Please forgive the dark pictures.  Here's the back.



One tricky thing about this pillow is getting those darn circles turned under just right. 



And I thought for sure I was going to mess up figuring out what fabrics to use, but I think it worked out.   I love it!  It will live on my bed for a while until I reupholster my chair, and then that will be it's new home.

Oh, I almost forgot, my blog was featured on Boy, Oh, Boy, Oh Boy! today.  She found my Ben 10 Jacket I made for Jack a while ago.  Hop on over and check it out.

  2. I love circles, they just catch my eye. I wanted to share with you a easy way to iron the edges of circles to be perfectly. I found it very helpful:
