Brown & Blue Paisley Tote & Nursing Cover

I have been working on a tote for a nursing cover. My good friend just had her second child and really wanted a nursing cover. She picked out her fabric and bought 1/2 a yard more than I needed. So I told her I would come up with something to go with it. Well I found this free tutorial for a tote that I found really cute, but a lot of extra work! Phew!

I did have to adjust the pattern to fit what I had leftover for fabric and then I also had to buy coordinating fabric for the liner. I really love the look of the tote and hope to make more..  but I just don't think for the work and extra cost it is worth it to sell as a set unless requested that way.

Cost $18-25 (depending on cost of fabric)

Pillow Slipcovers

I wanted to give my bedroom pillows something new, and other than replacing the ones I have I just thought I would make new slipcovers for them! I have had this fear of zippers for the longest time, till I found the  tutorial for making a wristlet & it had perfect instructions!

I could have gone all fancy with making pillows that have ruffles and lace, but I think my husband would have thought it was too femnine, so I choose to keep it simple. I bought a cotton fabric in a light green damask pattern & two invisible zippers. It took all of one hour to complete both pillow slipcovers & they turned out just perfect for what I was wanting... but I do want to add more pillows.. I don't think there's anything wrong with that!?!

Here is a link showing you step by step instructions on how to make a Throw Pillow Case Cover.
