This is My "Real" Blog: May 2012

Angie's Blog!

Pinterest has changed EVERYTHING.  It's made me blog.

By inserting a picture, I'm able to post things that I've done to Pinterest.  Weird.

By posting this here, I can link it on pinterest.

The instructions are pretty simple. 

Letter "A" is printed out on cardstock - American Typewriter (font) - 720.  Cut out card stock, trace backwards onto Steam a Seam.

Cut out fusible letter.  Fuse onto one piece of 14 x 14 homespun material. 

Once fused, stitch (light green) top stitch 1/4 inch inside the "A"

Sew pillow front to pillow back on three side -- insert pillow form (14 inch).  Sew bottom seam by hand.

You're done!

What I would've done differently. . . . I would have made the fabric 14.5 x 14.5, rather than a straight 14 inches square.  I would also move the letter up (diagonally) about a 1/2 inch.

I will make more. . . and I will make those adjustments!

Until then. . . enjoy!!!
