Making pillows...

I was making a journal cover from a tutorial from Teesha Moore it is on Vimeo here. It is a 4 part tutorial on how to make journal covers from these as Teesha calls them little pillows.. There is some fantastic journals that Teesha has made and it is well worth a look at her wonderful tutorials. Teesha has made bags and wall hangings all from this simple technique. 
I started mine last year and got one side done and then I just kind of left it. I bought one of those fat quarters of materials.. A mixed selection of coordinating fabrics. I liked this one as it had lots of purple and black and white fabrics. So what got me going again on this. Well I had a big clean out last week and found the bag with all the pieces.  I hung it on the doorknob of my room so I would do more. When we were out shopping last week I needed needles for my sewing machine. I saw this lovely fabric on sale for half price. So that kind of inspired me to keep going. 

This is Misty my kitty. My daughter bought the bed for her cat and it sat on it once and just never liked it. So she thought that my cats might use it. Misty liked this spot near the fire but there was not really anything there for her to sit on. They are funny how they just find a spot and that is where they go back to.  So we just put the bed there and well, I think she likes it. She looks so tiny on such a big bed.

  1. You will have to show your journal if you get it done. Yes cats are different LOL ours have their own special spots also.

  2. Misty looks very content and comfy! Can't wait to see your finished journal cover!
