Okay, dont know if this is TRULY a recon but here it is.

Had some old pillows my mom gave us and they were truly looking bad, some worse than others. But the pillows themselves were still usable, so I got out some  bandanas that I had bought and planned to use but still havent and decided to use them, with some muslim and make the pillows some nice new shams. BTW, my wife is very happy with the way they turned out, and if I do say so my self, they look very good as do the stitching (yay for myself and getting better at strait stitching!!).

Old pillows, my wife could only bring herself to picture one of them lol.

And how they look now, with the shams

My wife didnt take a picture of the backs, but I left a slot in the back that is folded over so you cant see the pillow inside. Gonna put a button on the back to help keep them closed and to bring some color to the backs of them. But the button job is my wife's since that is one thing that the sewing machine wont do and the one thing I cant do lol

Oh yea, action shot.

Let me know what you guys think.

Those are very nice, I like them. They remind me of skittles. Smiley Where did you find the cool bandanas? I've only ever seen the countryish paisley ones...

"Skittles" - lol  Grin Yeah they do!  I want giant sweeties on my sofa too!

Very cool - it's amazing how kids always commandeer your crafted things innit?  Roll Eyes

Nothing improves creativity like a lack of supervision...
I'll be back someday. Just not now.
