Love the pillow covers so far. Beautiful work hgddm and Idlers Design. The label graphic is very cool and who wouldn't love a ninja. The bird pillows are beautiful combinations of the feature and the background prints. Can't wait to see more.

Lookit my fabulous pillow covers from fiorinda!


First, this beautiful paisley-bordered one made from a vintage handkerchief and lace! How cute is it? It looks absolutely perfect on my chaise lounge...it's like you snuck in my house and saw my furniture Smiley It also has the cutest pearl button closures with little rose embroideries on the back:

How cute is that? I really wanted to try button closures but couldn't figure it out.

The second one is a Canadian-smocked navy blue! Can you believe how gorgeous? I asked for interesting textures and fiorinda sure got that down. The navy matches my slip cover perfectly. The little multicolored one is the most awesome extra ever--an actual pillow fiorinda made for me out of recycled clothing!

hgddm-I'm so glad you liked everything!  I am super happy with how the smocked one turned out.  I had no idea what it would look like when I was done.  I kind of made up the buttoned up back on that one, my machine was not in a button-hole making mood. If you want to learn how to do a buttoned back, the tutorial I used for the ruffled pillow is a really good one(and you could skip the ruffle to do a plain pillow).

I used this tutorial http://www.vanessachristenson.com/2011/04/v-and-co-how-to-shag-pillow.html at V and Co to do the shag one. It thought it was a fun little pillow.

Thanks for being a great partner!

I got my pillows from klg_jlg today!

They remind me of pumpkins and flamingos (two of my favorite things) with the orange and pink. Thanks a bunch, klg_jlg! They're great!

I think I'll post pics of what I sent my 2 partners while I'm at it since I know they've received:
klg_jlg's:


h-chan's:

ninja pillow front

ninja pillow back with ninja stars!


totoro

and my personal favorite:

Alice in Wonderland inspired front


and back (it's the same color front and back.)
