A Metamorphosis-Blue Monday

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan from Between Naps on the Porch and Blue Monday hosted by Sally at Smiling Sally. Several months ago, I read a post from Cottage Magpie about making pillows in 10 steps. I finally got the courage to try out the process with some leftover fabric from my bedroom valances. Miraculously, they turned out just great. Thank you, Angela, for the instructions.

I used Waverly's Nassau Vine Toile in blue, of course.
I made two14 inch pillows with piping- no less- for the bed. Now I am anxious to find a matching check to make a couple more -one for the bed and another to put on a chair.

You give me hope and inspire me! I am really impressed with the piping. I a going to check out her instructions! You did a great job and I love your fabric!

They turned out perfectly! I am always afraid of the piping. Perhaps it's because my machine is so old and won't get close enough. Do you have any tips on piping? Happy Blue Monday.
