Pillows, Pillows and More Pillows!

My granddaughter and I made pillows, pillows, and more pillows!  I guess you could say that we had Pillow-Mania!  I am just about done with my sewing room makeover and I have two window seats that needed lots of pillows.pillow maniaSo we went to work making pillows…we made tall bag pillows, square pillows, pieced pillows and flower pillows! making pillowsMy granddaughter is getting great at making pillows!  I cut them out and she would sew around them, turn and stuff them and then I would do the hand sewing to sew them closed.  We had a pretty good system going!pillow maniaWe did two different window seats and she picked out her favorite pillow on each of the seats.  We made most of these pillows, but my granddaughter went house shopping and found a few pillows that I had in a spare bedroom that matched perfectly!pillow maniaThis is one that I had done earlier that she found in the spare bedroom and it was perfect…with the red and yellow colors!pillow maniaSo this is what one of the window seats looks like!  I am loving the red and yellow with a little bit of grey in there.  This truly is my happy place!pillow maniaThis is the pillow that she picked from the second window seat.  She picked out the bandana fabric and added the burlap wrap that we stole from another room!  We bought a couple of the pillows envelopes from Hobby Lobby and all we had to do was make a pillow form like we did here,  from the Wal-mart bed pillows.  We bought 7 Wal-Mart pillows to make 10 pillows!  They were on sale for less than 4 dollars, so they are definitely the way to go, even if you just cut them open and use the stuffing to fill the pillows.pillow maniaI love all of the goodness here!  We had a great time making and arranging these pillows and I am so glad that I had my own personal interior decorator!  My granddaughter has been a great help and a great worker.pillow maniaAnd then if all those pillows were not enough…we had to make a few more pillows for their bedrooms!  We really had pillow-mania!  My granddaughter has all of the sudden gotten an obsession for Paris, so she picked two fun fabrics to go on her bed.  My grandson’s room is done in super hero’s, so when he saw this fabric he was not about to be left out!  :)

So that is our pillow-mania!  We had a great time together and hopefully we made a few fun memories!  I have put all the finishing touches on my sewing room and it is truly my happy place,  and it is now ready for my reveal!  So stay tuned!

Thanks for visiting today!

  1. I was just wondering what sewing machine you used and do you like it? Do you use it when you make your quilts as well?

    1. Roxanne, I have a very old Bernina industrial sewing machine that I absolutely love! It doesn’t do a lot of fancy things, just the basics, but it is a very fast machine! My daughter does not like to use it because it sews so fast. I also have a couple of portable Brother sewing machines that I love. My granddaughter uses one of these machines when she sews with me. I have a Handi Quilter long arm quilting machine that I use to quilt my quilts. I have only had it for a couple of years and still feel like I am learning, but I love it! I bought it second hand and my husband says that I have gotten my money’s worth already! :) I really recommend the Bernina sewing machines if you can afford them. They last a long time and when I took mine in for repairs a couple of years ago…I was afraid that they would not have the parts because my machine is more than 30 years old…but they did and got it fixed right away! Hope this helps.
