Chevron and Quatrefoil Throw Pillow Cases

Welcome Autumn! I got too busy doing these pillow cases for my living room and never got the chance to post something. 

Thanks for my first fifteen followers and to those who are not yet a member, I welcome you to my blog. I will be posting more interesting projects that you can also create. And I am hoping that this will be a way for us to be friends. To the Blogs who featured my projects, thank you for appreciating my works.

As I have said, I been got too busy with my pillows. I love the chevron and quatrefoil patterns, and bird in branch of a tree. I can see it anywhere in the blog world. I decided to incorporate these to my throw pillows. (I know! I know! You can see it anywhere.) With these pillows of mine, I made the  prints from the scratch. (Yes! You might say, "You can print nowadays in fabric using painter's tape or stencils".) Here, I only used my excess cardstocks or poster board. I even recycled (I mean upcycle.) two plain 27 X 27 inches throw pillows covers I bought from Value Village (sorry no photo of the before). See what the outcome.

Here's the front view. In these, I used chevron pattern and a bird in the branch of a tree.

Another view.



Here's the same pillow above (but the other side or the back sides). It's not even back because I used stripes and quatrefoil pattern. I decided to have different style of pattern in a pillow so I can alternate the designs.


Another view.



Plus, I got an excess fabric and I made a table runner. Plus (another one), I have an ongoing project for a small  rectangular pillow coming from the fabric I bought too. Nothing wasted. I'll show you when it's done.



I don't have a fancy or I can say a real sewing machine. I don't even know how to sew. My mom does! I've been asking her to teach me on how-to every time she's visiting us from California but we never got the chance to do so. Since I want to save a lot and I really want to have a color and pattern in my living room, I took the chance to sew with this sewing machine. Believe it or not!



The tutorial on how to print these patterns is coming soon. Keep viewing.
 
Total Cost: $10.05 (for everything)
