So if you did not know or notice, I have taken up sewing for our new shop and just for something to do for fun to get a little break from the kids every once in awhile. I had been looking online for pillows for our new bedroom and was not about to pay 30-40 dollars for 2 pillows so that is one of the main reasons I took up sewing, to customize my house in my own style rather than following with what a store offers. I found the cutest red floral fabric at Wal- Mart and just got a bag of pillow filler.
I had also bought a pillow pattern but when I opened it, it just confused me even more...I think I am going to sign up for a class because I have no patience on my own and I have little extra time to figure it out. So I just turned my fabric inside out and sewed a 16 x16 square, left a little bit open flipped her inside out and added stuffing and sewed the last bit shut and in less than 10 minutes I had my 2 accent pillows...that is what I like...fast and speedy decor! I must say they turned out pretty darn cute, they may not be accurate but they work great.
I think they match our cute pinstriped duvet and pillow cases from Ikea. I am still decorating our master bedroom and will post pictures once it is complete. We moved in over a month ago but are still settling in. The next big project is to get Vincent moved into his big boy room (twin bed) and Luke moved into the nursery! I am so behind, when I was pregnant with Luke I wanted to have Vincent moved into his big bed by the time Luke was 1-2 months, well life turned crazy with Jordan's new job and moving and the unsteadiness of it all, or the fact that I am just too tired to endure what it will take to make the big switcheroo. Nonetheless that is the goal in the coming months.
Do you have any tips on moving your toddlers into a big kid bed? If so I would love to hear them.
Hope you all have an amazing weekend, we are going to go check out running shoes today...hopefully I can pull off a cute pair that is comfortable. Jordan is super serious about these shoes, as am I so we are hitting up a store that will watch me run and fit them perfectly. Hey maybe that is why I hated running, because I was always in cheerleading shoes with zero support! I hope that is the reason...but I have a feeling I hated it because it hurt...oh well this baby weight clearly isn't melting off by itself!!
Until next time....xoxo
