My dh and I decided we needed new feather pillows for our bed. So off I went to my favourite store, HOMESENSE.
I purchased two down filled Calvin Klein pillows.
We when we arrived home I had the great "not so great" idea to wash our old pillows. You know I thought they could be used in the spare bedroom. NOT
Anyhow, I proceeded to wash these pillows and when the cycle was done and I opened my washer HELP!!!! There were feathers everywhere. There must have been pounds of feathers. Some wet some not so. So I had this bright idea again to salvage my feathers. I put them in a laundry bag and hung them outside to dry.
In the meantime I had to vacuum my washer to get rid of the rest. For weeks now we are still vacuuming up feathers that have clung onto clothing that has come out of the washer and dryer.
So here comes the fun part. I decided to make a new pillow.
I printed out clip art HERE. and then transferred it to this fabric.
I had some muslin fabric in stock to finish up my look. Here it is completed.
So while I was stuffing this pillow case feathers were going everywhere. It was snowing in my house. I should have worn a mask, not realizing the dander that comes with feathers. But I finished and here is the crown pillow.While I was in the pillow mode I made a new cover for this pillow.
I had a fabric swap with Ariane and I made the pillow cover using some of the fabric as well as using Muslin.
Sew you see I still sew....until next time
