return on creativity: new pillow cover ideas

I made some new pillows for my shop using black fabric paint.  The all is well pillow was inspired by three word sayings like "Life is good" or "Live Laugh Love".  I hand painted the words and then sewed red felt applique accents in the loops of the letters.

I used an eclectic grouping of my collection of foam stamps to create this alphabet pillow.  I bought most of my stamps years ago.  They are mostly from Making Memories and no longer sold, but I found a set on Amazon here.  I love my foam stamps.  I use them on paper and fabric.  If you find some snatch them up! 

This is my favorite tutorial for sewing pillow covers.  It doesn't win the prize for the prettiest pillow in my opinion, but the measurements seem to work really well for me.

Happy sewing and thanks for reading!

All is well is a phrase that Louise Hay uses in some of her books. It's calming, isn't it? Nice work. linda
