Just for me.

Thursday, June 19, 2014
I've been wanting to embroider something. Oh no, not real fancy embroidery, just a simple running stitch. I also wanted to add something patriotic to my front room. I'm not much for decorating, so simple is the key word for anything I make for my home. (Honestly, I really don't decorate! I have a total of one decorative item hanging on a wall...out of all the walls in my entire house! I definitely 'do' simple.)

This pillow fits the bill perfectly. I was able to embroider, make something patriotic, and keep it simple, all in one!

I sewed up a simple envelope closure pillow cover, cut out a simple outline of the USA, and adhered it to the fabric with a heat'n'bond type material.

Turns out that stitching this up was a very relaxing project and I enjoyed every single minute of it. Me, and my needle and thread.

And for the next month, I get to see that cute little pillow sitting on my chair.

I like it there.

It reminds me that I need to occasionally take some time to make something I want to make. So simple, so imperfectly perfect.

So don't forget to make something just for yourself, every now and then. It feels good, even if it's just a simple little pillow.

Thanks for stopping by,

Make It and Love It
