Yay for Easy Sewing

I decided last weekend to head to JoAnns and find some cheap fabric for pillows to spice up my dark couch.  50% off already-reduced fabric and 50% off of the pillow forms got me this:

There's actually one more small pillow that you can't see.  And they're Phoebe-approved!

While I had the sewing machine out of hiding, I decided to try the dress version of Simplicity 3835.  I had cut the fabric out a while ago and was sewing along until I noticed a big problem:

See how the pattern is off center?  Grrr!  I was so careful with all of the other pieces, but somehow I forgot to double check the all-important front before cutting.  But I think that I can salvage the fabric and give it new life as a skirt!

Great pillows!

And I am so sorry about the pattern being off center for the dress! Oof. That is so easy to do. I hope it turns out well as a skirt - it's a super-cute fabric.
