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!
