Give me five!

I decided this lonely little chair needed a pillow...
since I LOVE pillows...
I thought I would try to make one...

I gathered my supplies...
I used a natural colored linen...
a pre-made pillow form- (I chose the bolster) ...
paint...of course!


after I cut the fabric the size I wanted...
longer on the sides because I knew I wanted to tie the ends...
I free-hand painted the number 5...

I then placed the fabric around the pillow form
to determine where to sew the two sides together...
pinned a rough line to sew the seam...
sewed together inside out...

turned the pillow case right side out...
placed the pillow form inside...

tied the ends up with silk ribbons, fabric pieces, and a little "jewelry"...
just to add that special touch...(these are vintage clip-on earrings!)

I just love how it turned out!
I think some sweet family & friends may find these under their trees this year!

and here it is again...
the 5 is so special to me...
it represents my most treasured thing...
my family!


Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!
