Scrap Sewing and New Tutorial

Hello there! I don't know about you guys, but do you ever get the itch to just sew? I mean without rhyme or reason or pattern? I needed a big stress reliever and for me sewing is my stress relief! I started out with a nice big pile of pretty fabric scraps....

       I had no plans except to sew some scraps together. No particular size in mind...I just wanted to see if I could sit down at the machine and come up with something pretty.  

         This is what I came up with after a little bit. I really liked where it was going. Do u wanna see the finished project? You know you do!

           Here is the finished top. I asked on Instagram whether I should make it a mini or a pillow. Pillow was the majority so that's what I went with.

         I love the way it turned out! There is nothing better than a quick, fun, and easy project! At least for me anyways!
        I used my favorite method for this pillow which is an Envelop Closure and pssstttt.....I even made a video tutorial on how I do it! Soooo.....If you wanna learn how finish the majority of my pillows you can go watch my video tutorial right here! I know that my videos are a little long right now and that's mainly because I want to be able to know that I didn't leave any steps out and that you can understand exactly how I do it. I've got a few ideas on how to make them a bit shorter but for now, they are a little long. I hope you will still go watch it and let me know what you think!

         You should be able to click on the video right above this sentence to watch it too!

       I chose to do a black and white stripe binding because, well let's be honest, it's one of my favorite ways to bind anything!
      I really hope you will go check out my video and would absolutely LOVE it if you would subscribe to my channel so you don't miss out on any future tutorials and videos I've got planned. Just a hint but I'll be doing a product review next!

Oh yeah! If I forgot to tell you in my last post I now have a Facebook page! You can find that right here!

I'll be linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish It Friday this week!

~Hope y'all are having a GREAT day!!~
