I made a table runner and a pillow to go with our new curtains and wall art. They were super easy to sew and I finished them both in about 40 minutes.
I wouldn’t have been able to make them quite that fast if it wasn’t for Jon’s help. We spent the evening in the sewing room together. Is that weird? Hey, our sewing room doubles as a workout room and there’s a TV in there so I can watch Netflix when I have to run on my treadmill in the dead of winter. So we watched Sherlock while we worked on sewing projects together.
While I put the buttons on the shirt I just finished for Seth, Jon cut out the two long rectangles for the table runner. Then I sewed them up after I was finished with the buttons.
While I was sewing the table runner, he cut out the pieces to make the envelope pillow. Then I sewed the pillow and admired all we were able to finish in a short amount of time.
One of the very first projects I ever sewed was an envelope pillow just like this. I made three of them, actually. They’ve been living happily on our couch for the past 18 months. I am keeping the other two pillows I originally made for sentimental reasons, even if the fabric doesn’t exactly go with the new pillow. I like ’em together.
And that’s it. We’re off to visit family in the morning, so it will be a little bit before I finish another project.
