Using up vintage sheet scraps

28 Nov

I thought my goal for November would be a fairly simple one to get done. I needed to finish quilting a pillow top and then turn it into a pillow cover.

IMG_7599The quilting seemed to take forever, I opted to try out some of the decorative stitches on my machine, obviously the more intricate they are the longer they take! IMG_7587All 33 strips were eventually quilted and then all I needed was a long zip. I hadn’t realised that the length of continuous zip I had left was not going to be long enough so I had to order more and while I waited other things took up my time.

IMG_7585On Monday morning I put everything else on hold and made myself finish this up. I’d already cut the backing fabric so it was a quick job to add the zip and stitch it up.  The whole thing was a fairly random plan, I really wasn’t sure if it would look ok when finished but I’m so pleased with it:IMG_7582

It really turned out way better than I’d hoped and it’s great to use up some of the ‘scraps’ of vintage sheets.  If you want to make one yourself then I have scrap packs in my shop and this weekend they are 50% off too!
