In terms of loving generous sewing for others I score pretty low. I don't make anything for my son, and charge my husband to take up his trousers (in child free time, the best kind of payment).
So I'll keep this brief: I made these for a friend for her birthday because I knew she'd love the print - it's original 1950's linen from the deceased estate sale that I made you all envious about. Want to hear more to be envious about? 6 metres for $5. I split the fabric with my sister though, because she also loved it.
The pillows are very simple - piping on the outside, one grey the other red/black, invisible zipper on the back.
You have got to love the speed of a craft project don't you? I made these in 2 afternoons while I supervised my son on some highly educational computer programs. Not even evil TV babysitting! Smugger and smugger!
