Well, I guess you want to see what the backs look like, right?
There are so many ways to put a pillow together, the easiest is to cut a square the same size as the front, sew around leaving an opening for the pillow form and then hand sewing the opening closed. It has it's drawbacks: the hand-sewing for one (if you don't care for it) and the pillow is not as easy to remove as if you put a zipper there instead. I mean, I would have no problem picking out the sewing and re-doing it if I really needed to launder the pillow, but how often do people really launder these things anyway?
Another way is the way that Allison suggested in her post, make two sides to overlap, you have to hem the pieces, put them together and size them to the front, but then you just sew all around the pieces and stuff the pillow form in the opening. All done. The buttons to hold the opening closed are optional. It is a little more work, not much, and you can always just pop the pillow form out and back in with no additional handwork.
I did both. Why? I was not offered choices. The piece of zebra fabric I had was not big enough to cut, make hems and then overlap to leave the opening. The rest of my scraps were not big enough to cover the back of the pillow all by themselves, so necessity being the mother of whatever it is, I had to make do and make up. I totally love that I was able to center that forward facing zebra. I didn't think it would make such an impact centered, but that zebra totally looks like he is gazing right atcha! Either one of these pillows could be shown backside out, but the fronts are so cute, I can't imagine wanting to.
Closer-ups, you ask? Here you go, stupid thread and all:
Oh, you must click to make them big (on my computer the big pictures are much better for some reason, always click here, always). They are too cute!
Don't they look sweet with the quilt?
More photos? Oh, Heck yeah!
Prinna checks it out, because the old lady takes care of her Gillian.
The old woman approves.
Would you just look at the cute label I made? More scrap usage!
So, whaddya think? Am I finished with these scraps yet? Do I have any left? Well, yes I do. Some with Wonder-Under and even more without.
Oh! The things I can do! The ideas that pop into my head! I am a woman obsessed, I have thought of a couple of things, but I have more than one kid and the others are starting to think I'll never do anything for them. I just cannot decide, keep? Chuck. Keep? Chuck.
KEEP! You might not have seen the last of these scraps yet.
One hundred eleven. Or day THIRTEEN! Seriously, I think I may need an intervention, I half expect to walk out of the sewing room into a gathering of my closest friends and family, there to force me to face my addiction.
