so i've been a lurker for a while cuz i've always wanted to do crafty things, and ya'll gave me so much inspiration, so THANKS!!!
anywho, i have this thing for pillows. i love them. they are the best invention ever! I've always pictured myself as having one of those beds that was so covered in pillows you could hardly see the mattress. however, i'm a college student, and thus broke. I can't afford to buy cool ones, so i figured, why not make them?? my mom has all kinds of materials, and joann fabrics has inexpensive 'scraps.' so here they are. my first 3 attempts at pillows

this is the very first pillow i ever made. i'm very proud of it. it's really messy in the seams because at that time i didn't have a sewing machine and had to do the whole thing by hand. it wan't all loss. i got a chance to listen to Vivaldi's Four Seasons all the way through! lol. sorry about the random table cloth behind it. i'm trying to shield you all from the hideousness of the chair behind it.



this one is also hand sewn, but i think it will always be my absolute favorite. i was a HUGE band geek back in high school and so this just fits my personality to a T. i wanted to try something different so i added the blue ribbon to give it of color as well as a fun look.


this was after i bought my genie machine on craigslist for uber cheap(beggers can't be choosers). i was just playing around with it. i'm not crazy about the material, but i didn't want to toss it out, either.

so those are my first pillows!! hope you enjoyed and i hope to do more crafting in the future. now if only i could make up my mind what to do with this!!
