From table setting to pillow
Could not resist purchasing two sunny yellow tulip shaped place mats at Marshall's yesterday. I broke my promise to NOT purchase anything MIC, but with some sewing notions and fabric items, you just gotta do what you gotta do - they were reduced to less than half price, so the total of both of them was $3.14. I rummaged through my fabric stash and found a coordinating fabric that looks nice with the tulip I think. Appliqueing tulip to a large piece of fabric (measure for pillow to be inserted) was easy and I had some fabric to do cording on one pillow. The mate to this one may have to be relegated to male status and be displayed without cording - since it is difficult to work anyway. Placing these bright, cheerful pillows will welcome SPRING in any city. Observe our ticker each day - it's closer than you think.
