Last week I showed you the easy outdoor tables.
This week it’s easy outdoor pillows…I’m sensing a theme here.
I am not a seamstress.
I don’t even play one on TV.
In the past I have claimed to possess the capabilities to sew a straight line, but that has proved to be incorrect.
However, I do know how to turn on, thread and run my sewing machine. So I think that gives me at least a little credibility.
My personal sewing skills (or lack thereof) should not reflect on my grandmother, mother, Mrs. Barfield (HS home-ec), or Mrs. Thomas (textiles teacher at college).
Goodness knows, they tried.
I will never forget the first item that I sewed in my home-ec class.
An apron…with an African safari type motif.
Mrs. Barfield was not impressed with my choice of fabric. She just rolled her eyes.
I get that a lot…
After that we had to tackle a piece of clothing.
For the love of all that is fashion…I should not have to wear something that I made.
That is just cruel and unusual punishment.
It had a yoke waist and everything.
But without that harrowing experience I wouldn’t be the uber-humble person that I am today…ahem.
No comments from my family and friends please.**
Whew, that was a long disclaimer. Sorry.
The pillows are machine washable so I didn’t spend the extra time and energy making an opening to take the form in and out. I figure that I’ll just toss them in the washer and then let them air dry outside. Easy Peasy.
Well, I hope that tutorial is clear as mud for you. If you have any questions (or you just want to say ‘Hi’) you can leave a comment and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
