Project for a Rainy Day
It rained cats & dogs here in Brooklyn this weekend. Hail, thunder & wind gusts above 50mph added up to a cozy weekend spent mostly indoors. And for me, it meant finally recovering old Ikea pillows, whose original covers I'd tossed last year. The gray skies & sheets of rain made Saturday perfect for this little sewing project. This Liberty of London material was leftover from the table overlays we made for our wedding. I based my simple covers off of a pillow I already had and went to work, figuring it out as I went. They probably need a button in the back, but as a simple pillow cover that gets these off the shelf, they work just fine for me.
