I'm new to sewing. This blog is all about the things I am learning to make. I will be making this into a second income for myself and this will be my major site! Enjoy what I have to offer!

This is my big pillow. It was fairly easy to make. All it is is a jelly roll for the top. I used a patch from a different fabric and sewed it in the middle to cover the whole that was there. I then used a completely different fabric for the back side of it. I cut all the long jelly roll slices in half. After which I sliced them into triangles, obviously not very even ones. I was trying to be quick about making this. I then sewed the triangles together. I did it in sections then sewed all the sections together. My middle looked really weird, and it didn't turn out the way I expected. It was really simple though, until my machine broke. But, I got it back, and finished my pillow. I used 3 and a half old standard size pillows to stuff this one. The next one I make I will stuff with pellets and do according to someones tutorial. There are a couple good ones out there. So, if you want to try your own, I suggest This site. I need to learn the "trimming" part of the tutorial.....I thought that was a little hard to understand! But, I like the way mine turned out. Here are some more pics of my pillow:
