Pillows for the Kids

I've finally been back in the studio. And discovered how easy it is to make a simple case for a small-ish pillowform!
I gave some of our old pillows a little upgrade with some fun cotton covers.
I started with directions from Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing book, but the overlap in the back was a little short (the pillows are a little old and a little lumpy) so I modified it a bit for the second one.
The pillows are 16x16 and just right to add that little something to the kids' beds. I have two more waiting for covers for the den, I just need to decide which fabric to use. These sew up so quickly, I could easily see perking up lots of little family spaces around the house with some of the fun prints from my stash.

And then I can see The Dad hiding my sewing machine on me and crying "Enough! Enough pillows!"
As I've said before, it's all about balance.
