I had red throw pillows on my bed but they really don't go with the decor any more. So I bought some muslin and covered the pillow and then made a case out of burlap. I stenciled on a design and there you go. Took me a couple of hours and cost me less than $10! I really like the way they turned out.
I didn't know if I should wash the burlap before making the pillowcases. I am wishing I would have now...it kind of stinks and there is a crease that may be permanent in one of the pillows. I had never worked with burlap until now though. So I am learning as I go.
I am a stay at home Mom raising 3 boys with my husband of 12 years. My oldest son is 6, the middle is 6 and the baby is 3. They keep me busy and I love it! We moved from Texas to Virginia in July of 2010, where my hubby has taken a job as an Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech. I love reading, scrapbooking, crafting, cake decorating, baking, playing with my kids, listening to music and learning about my Lord and Savior. I welcome any comments as long, as they are respectful.
I read a total of 76 books in 2010 and my goal for 2011 will be 85.
11/25/11UPDATE--I didn't put into consideration that last year I added books of the bible to my list and this year I am not...I didn't keep last year's list but I am pretty sure that at least half of the 76 were just books as opposed to the Bible. So I think a new goal of mine will be to have read 50 books. I only have a month left...
