I finally got around to some sewing....

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a weekend sewing retreat at a friend's house.We were a small, but mighty group and we had a blast!

Best of all.....I actually started and finished a project.

Drum roll please................TA DA!

A pillow made using the Half Hexie ruler and some fabrics that I've been collecting for a while.

Front (approx 12"x16")

(There's a hidden zipper behind that flap.)

The pillow with it's lovely new owner.
(Hi Mom!!!)

I purchased the pillow form (50% off at Joann's) and a half yard of fabric for the back. The rest of the fabric and the vintage zipper all came from my stash. I love it when I can make something pretty and practical from what I already have!

Oh sweet! You mom looks like she likes it! Were the hexies hard to sew? It looks likes they are cut in half, but does that still mean y-seams?

And the hidden zipper is a beautiful touch!
