On Sunday afternoon I went out and bought a few yards of inexpensive fabric so I could practice making pillows. My newest creation is below. I am getting the hang of sewing but I’m having problems getting the envelope back to lie flat. I tried sewing the sides of the top flap a bit narrower. I tested different pillows with less loft. This seems to work the best but the pillows feels too flat now. A women at the fabric store suggested I put a piece of velcro on the flap. I don’t really like that idea. Maybe I will forget the envelope back idea and try using a zipper? Hmmm. Greg kept telling me the pillow looked fine and I was being crazy. I just want it to look perfect. SO what if I am a bit obsessive.
