DOLL PILLOWS AND SHOPPING

I received a gift certificate for Christmas, so Saturday I went to my favorite quilt shop to spend it. I purchased these fat quarters and charms. This shop specializes in reproduction fabrics.They also have a bin with odd shaped pieces for sale at lower prices and below are the pieces I got for a bargain price.
I made some doll pillows with this cotton fabric printed like "ticking." I had been looking for ticking, but I found this at Hobby Lobby. The pillow is about 7" x 4 1/2".
Then I made some pillow cases for the pillows. It didn't take very long to make these.

One will be sent to a great-niece and I will save some for other doll quilts I'm planning to make.

The scrap bin at my favourite fabric shop is a treasure chest. Somethines they have bolt ends with 2 or 3 metres! Your fabrics are delightful and the little dolly pillows are as sweet as can be.

Happy Stitching...Ann :)

Oh, those little pillows are so cute. I wouldn't have thought of making a pillow like a real one with ticking pillow and pillow cases. What a good idea.

What wonderful doll quilts and other projects! And I'm impressed with the tablecloth design wall idea! Hope you have a great year with your Etsy sales.
