Hey there fellow V & Co. readers! Allison here from the site Cluck. Cluck. Sew.
Sometimes, ideas in my head don’t always turn out as planned. And sometimes, they turn out better…. After running across Sweet Jessie’s Scalloped Garland tutorial a few months ago, I wanted to take the same technique and use it to make a shabby, fun, linen pillow.
This is my favorite thing to do with my little scraps, and since its Scrap Buster month over at Sew, Mama, Sew , I made a quick tutorial so you can make your own. This pillow cover is 16" square with an envelope back & the design possibilities are endless! I added some pillows I’ve previously made with this same method at the end of this post. Happy Sewing! You’ll Need: 1.
i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach... as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning... *sigh* yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.
To make a cargo scarf, you will need: 1/2 yard 45" wide cotton for outer layer I chose a cute banana-print cotton; any decorative or fashion fabric will do, but it should be woven (not a stretchy knit). 1/2 yard lining This is the part of the scarf that will be against your skin, so choose something warm and comfortable.
