Remember the Ghastlies fabric? I knew I wanted to make some fun pillows with it.
But I think these kind of flopped a bit. Well, at least the oval framed one did. You can't really tell from the picture, but the whole 'frame' is off-center and it's bugging me a lot. But not enough to fix it.
Also, I thought it would be cool to put some stuffing behind the black 'frames' and make them look a little more 3-D. And...you can't tell in the pictures AT ALL. You can definitely tell in person, but I wouldn't do it again. Looks a little lame.
Finally, I decided to put a zipper in these rather than an envelope closure. First time doing this with a pillow case like this, and it was a little challenging. I was going to do a zipper-pillow tutorial as well but seriously, the pictures I was taking were just NOT working. But the tutorial I followed is here and it was a great tutorial with good pictures. However, my pillow has piping and so I had to do some tweaking. Maybe some day I will do a tutorial for this (but not when the pillow is with dark materials.)
I can't wait to show you my finished living room tomorrow! It's very Halloween-y, but with a modern edge. I love it.
