Pillows – lots of them

Standard

We’re hosting a teen potluck here on the weekend and I’m hoping that we will all be gathering in my not-so-big living room for some good food, fun and games. Rather than borrow a bunch of extra chairs, we have invested in half a dozen body pillows (20 X 46″) and I ran up some pillowcases for them tonight. It didn’t take long, and the cool thing was that it used up my Hello Kitty and flowery stash that I brought home from work as remnants. Once this event is over, I’d love to turn our family room into a comfy place to hang out, so I’ll be looking at ways to make it look less stark in there. These pillows will be a good start. 

The top pillow (pink Hello Kitty) is not as well-covered as the others as I was limited by what I had.

This is a book I bought recently, as I found it at the library and liked it enough to invest in it. I pulled out the Burda pattern tracing paper that I bought on sale at work some time ago and the three metres of blue Hello Kitty fabric, also bought on sale (I think it was buy one metre, get two free)!

I made the largest size and the pyjama pants just fit with a small amount of positive ease. I was hoping for more roominess but if I make more I can use my current fleece pyjama pants as a pattern instead. This was project #2 today.
