I finally sat down and made some pillows. I wanted to try the denim materials I have been saving and do something simple, with raw edge.
On the ship pillow, I used a think base fabric and laid the denim strips on top. I sew them down on one edge, over lapping each edge. The sail and ship are also old pant material.
The anchor, I did not use a base material. I sewed one strip to the first strip, then the one below. The anchor was some old ticking, I had.
The pillows are 18" and 16". They will ravel more as they get used. Next I need to start a quilt, I have lots of jeans and I just cut some more, today. The ship I drew out on paper to make templates, the anchor I got from a coloring page.
The material was from my friend Karen, I thought it was a fun print for these.
I hope everyone has a nice weekend. We have some decent weather so hoping to get out for some walks.
