2012 Challenge: Project Three and Four

I made this sweet little heart pillow. It was very easy to make. I folded my fabric and drew a half of heart like you learn to do in elementary school. I cut the fabric and cut my finger as well. I haven't seen that much blood since my son fell and bit through his lip. Wow! Those scissors are sharp! I have to remember to keep them in a safe place.
Anyway, I pinned to hearts together and sewed around it until I had about an inch left. I then stuffed it and sewed it up. I added a little rosette (of course). 

This is my project for week 4.   

What's that? It looks like just a piece of fabric? 
Well, in fact it is just a piece of fabric. I washed it and it has been sitting on my ironing board ever since. I know what I am going to do with it. I want to make a cute ruffle skirt for my daughter but the idea of cutting and sewing all those strips of fabric seems so incredibly daunting that I just haven't started. I hope to start it soon. Like today. I will start today. Really. I will. I promise.
We'll see. I might just stare at it for another week. 



  1. Cute pillow! and yes, the scissors ARE sharp! I cut myself with my quilting scissors once and needed stitches! Worst part of it was the annoying bandage on the end of my finger for weeks and weeks!
