Finish it up Friday: Postage Stamp Pillow

This will be a very quick post today, as I prepare for my son’s 6th birthday camping party (in the backyard).

I have finished sewing all 10 rows of the postage stamp pillow using 2.5 x 2.5 ” squares of Road 15 mini charms by Sweetwater for Moda and Bella solid cotton mini charm.

Weekend finishes: Pillows

I was so thrilled this week when I found that Janice @ Better of Thread highlighted my Market Tote on her website, after I shared it on her Sew Tuesday link up. I hope you go over and check out the link up, its lots of fun.

Over the weekend, I finished the two postage stamp pillows that were blogged here and here (check out these blogs for close up shots and fabric used). I love how they turned out. Here are the final looks:

Wonky Universe Pillow (my son’s):

Spring Pillow:

For the first time, I used invisible zippers for the back opening, across the middle, for both pillows. I love how these look instead of my usual envelope backing:

And now more photos of these pillows all finished:
