Goats Milk...Pillow

First, I need to shout out to my new followers. Welcome aboard! Normally I'd like to send a nice little welcome email to let you know I care, but Blogger is being obnoxious again. Every time I try to send you a message, Blogger tries to make me follow my own blog. What? I almost accidentally clicked the button too. I'm that kind of dork. So, welcome!

I {heart} feed sack pillows, chair covers, etc. I especially heart the ones that are coffee or flour sacks. So that was the inspiration to use up these fabulous little soap sacks I'd been saving from Goat Milk Stuff. Not getting perked at all to say this: the soap and bath bombs are ah-maze-ing! And the soaps all come in these little bags.

So I ripped the seams.

And then sewed them together.

I had to add some fabric to make it fit the size pillow I had (I already had a pillow form that needed a new cover).

Sewed it all together and voila! a new feed-sack inspired pillow.

I have it in my living room for now. I may move it to our bedroom though. I really like it in the living room, but I don't necessary want light colored pillows because of the kids. The kids are the reason I need to replace my throw pillows in the first place.

And I already have one white and yellow pillow that worries me. That one was made from a placemat. See this post for how to to that.

    I agree, Blogger sure has been weird lately. It seems like every week for the past month they've been throwing us a curve ball. I've found that today, every time I try to follow someone, I'm hit with word-verification. Funky!

    So pleased to "meet" you!
