may the force be with us...part 2

Wednesday, March 17, 2010 |
so for the next part in the re-do on nate's room, i made some pillow covers.
the pillows i had had from who knows what. so when i was at d.i., i grabbed this nice mens shirt. if you havent ever made a pillow case from a mens oxford shirt, it is very easy. just button up the shirt, place the pillow where it looks best and cut about 2" from the edge of the pillow.
the great thing with an oxford shirt is that you can place right sides together, sew it all up, unbutton it, flip it rightsides out and put the pillow in and button it back up.
so flipping easy!
and the buttons add a nice detail.
i had extra material, so i decided to make a second pillow. i went and found a clone trooper pumpkin carving stencil. then i found directions on how to print onto fabric here.
again-so easy!
so with left over scraps from the shirt, i peiced together a second pillow.
by then, natey had made it home from school and found out what i had been up to.
needless to say, he LOVES his new pillows. and if you look in the background you can see that we are watching the original star wars movie. (for those of you who are geeks-it is right where han says 'boring conversation any. luke! we're gonna' have company!')
and he is still dragging that pillow everywhere with him. bummer, because i really dont want to make another so soon...
