So, remember I told you about my Home Ec class over at the Freckled Nest?  Well, I’m just loving it.   I haven’t made every single project but I’ve made most of them.

This is by far my favorite.

{And I know that pesky thread is driving you crazy.   Don’t you just want to reach through the computer and snip it?   Yeah, me too.}

I used some Anna Marie Horner fabric that I had left over from last year.    And then I used this technique (just scroll down) to make the felt flower.    And now I want to make twenty more.   Wouldn’t they be the perfect Christmas gift?   I mean, I would love to have a pillow for Christmas.   Wouldn’t you?

It took about an hour. What an amazing gift from an hours’ work.
There is something magical about creating. It’s our Father’s fingerprint on us.

And it goes just perfect in the queen chair. Which is still in the kitchen. (fingers crossed).
Oh and thank you for your lovely words about the kitchen. I’m so glad you like it too. I’ve been dying to show you.

Today’s project: laptop case! Score!

  1. That is gorgeous, I can’t believe it only took you an hour! I really wish I’d signed up for the home ec thing myself. I’m looking forward to getting back into my sewing this month now the summer is fading.

    Have a lovely day,

  2. Beautiful.

    And those threads? I snip and snip and snip and think I’ve gotten every last one. Then if I present it as a gift there will always be one hanging off somewhere. They’re out to get me.

  3. That’s cute. Great job Edie. My large sectional has been in need of some new giant pillows for some time now, I can’t seem to find any I like. I’m going to just make some covers for the giant pillows I already have…it’s one of those things from my summer projects list that didn’t get done.

  4. The pillow is absolutely beautiful! Is there anything you can’t do? The kitchen looks wonderful, too! Thank you for sharing it.

  5. I joined that class when you linked it last time. I’m LOVING it! tomorrow I start the banner. Awesome job on the pillow!

  6. LOVE this pillow! Looks awesome Edie! I really really need to learn my sewing machine…..
    My kids went to the Luthern church VBS last week (I posted about it) and loved it, we are trying service this Sunday there, I’ll keep you posted.
    I also ordered The small Catechism and The Lutheran Prayer book and loving them both 🙂

  7. Well that’s just the cutest little pillow I ever did see!
    And I think it will be PERFECT sitting in that fabulous chair in your new beyond~fabulous kitchen!
    I know you and your girls are going to have some great times in that kitchen!
    You’re a doll Edie!
    And I think all that you do with your girls…and home schooling is AMAZING!
    Good for you!

  10. oh I am just lovin this pillow! You just gave me the pillow bug what a wonderful idea for gifts. It really only took you an hour? I am so doing this!!Thank You 🙂

  11. just lovely … I’m doing that class too and it’s been so fun. I definitely agree with you about creating – it’s a wonderful way to spend some time, using what God gave us and allowing our uniqueness to come through. This pillow definitely has your fingerprint and His on it. Well done!
