Happy MLK Day


My husband’s home today.
It’s holiday time… we’re off to do something fabulous in this 60 degree sunny weather. Even if fabulous just means taking a stroll around the neighborhood. And maybe grocery shopping. At least we can tag team the children at the store.
It’s holiday time….nothing like a good trip to the grocery store.

Anyway, I just wanted to post real quick.
Many of you have asked and emailed the pillows pictured with the gathered pillow………shown here.

All the fabric from these pillows I found at Hancock Fabric, during their 50% off upholstery sale. Great find and a great price. They have similar sales pretty often.

And I used the Pillow Slipcover tutorial found here.

That’s it.

There’s my secret.

Now, go and enjoy your day…..especially if you have the day off too.
