Pillows Kissed by Lallee’s Cottage

I have another Etsy Shop addiction……don’t get me wrong I still love Donna’s Art and my addiction for Girl Boxmaker’s accordion books still lives……

Lately, I have been drooling over Lallee’s Cottage Etsy Shop especially the hand crocheted dish clothes. I knew I would never use them to wash dishes…..they are just too pretty! My dilemma….what can I do with them? Well Miss Rosie thought and thought and soon came up with a solution. I love to make simple flange pillows, it is challenge to make them each different and keep them easily capable of being thrown in the wash. I wash pillow shams a lot! So, I thought dish clothes and washable pillow shams…….ah yes….I will use them as appliques! Brilliant!

These are the first two that caught my eye (pictures downloaded from Lallee’s store).

I was so exited to get them and I already had the fabric I wanted to use to make the pillows….an apple green home dec material from Joann’s. I first sewed the dish clothes on to my top square of material.

Then I finished the process of making the overlapping sections in the back and sewing on some velcro to keep things neat and tidy…. I sewed the front to the back….flipped the sham right side out, measured for my flange, sewed a row of stitching to make the flange ……and they are finished!

Don’t you thing they are springtime fresh and pretty? I have two more on order…..yeah! There may not be an unpillowed chair on the porch…..in the house….perhaps the car! LOL

Lallee is such a talented artist. Her work is beautifully executed. Please go over and take a look at her wonderful shop….there are lots of goodies to drool over…..perhaps you’d like to make a pillow, too!
