Here they are!
This is the first one I did, then cut up and redid after trying twice to install a zipper to no avail. I finally went with an envelope backing
So I did get a zipper done successfully on this one. I figured simple stripes would be a nice break after all the pleating and ruffling.
The pompom trim is something I don't think I ever want to mess with on a pillow again. I have to say that I wished that I could have made my pompoms and done something more like this one that Meg did at elsiemarley but there was no way with my week that I would have ever gotten it done. Maybe next time.
This was my first attempt to piece fabric together, I think it turned out OK but I didn't get a great shot of it. So now I am off to bed so that I can rest up for round two. I promised my husband that I would have this part of the gift done by the end of pillow week (he doesn't know that it was over today so I'll just carry on till tomorrow is over ;)
