Loralie Harris Breast Cancer Support Panels/Pillow Covers

I’ve used Loralie Harris’ “Still” series panels to create these fabulous pillow covers. Please take a moment of time to view 4 minutes of this 10 minute Youtube video where Loralie shares about her inspiration behind creating this series.

I love knowing the stories behind the artwork.

I have these pillow covers listed on my Etsy site in the links below.

Pillow Covers

Good morning! Been up since 4 AM. My eyes are tired but my mind and body won’t let me sleep.
What do you think of the pillow covers I created? Remember the tutorial I shared on making them? Well, it works! I of course had to ~embellish~ them. I have them listed on my Etsy site here

I have a couple more to share so will post pictures next.

Have a wonderfully creative day!

~Saturday Sewing~ FREE Tablerunner/Placemat Sewing Tutorial

Happy Saturday! I found an awesome Table Runner/Placemat tutorial for you to try from Moda. This would be such a fun way to use up fabric scraps and/or ~EXPENSIVE~ fabric that you only purchased a small amount of cause, ‘you just had to have it’!

I understand! You are among a fellow fabric addict. (See attached photo). “Hi, my name is Andrea and to be quite honest, I just bought fabric LAST NIGHT!”

(Please note that I am in no way, shape, or form teasing ANYONE suffering from a true addiction and am NOT making fun of REAL support groups. This is just a funny for those of us who know we spend TOO much on fabric but have to laugh about it.)

Now on to the cool tutorial. See Below

http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/03/simple-spring-table-runner-or-place.html

The first person to give this toot a try, AND submit a photo of your finished work, will win a prize. 🙂 We all love WINNING FREE STUFF right?? Hint, I run a fabric shop so take a wild guess what your “free stuff” might be?? hee hee find me at etsy.com/shop/embellishbyandrea

Please pass this along to your fellow sewers, family, friends, the neighbor down the street, even the ladies at the fabric store/quilt shop. The more the merrier and tell them to mention your name. If they happen to win, you just might get a little something for sending them my way!! (I love giving gifts!) 🙂

Wishing you all a creative, productive Sewing Saturday.

Hugs,

Andrea 🙂
