HOW TO MAKE A NO SEW HEART PILLOW

Welcome to another Wacky Workshops project – a no-sew heart pillow.

 

HEART PILLOW PICTURE

 

 

Funny how decorative pillow prices can range from a few dollars to $20 or $30. You can sometimes find the little square ones in the cheap shops for $5 and I’ve even snapped up some bargain pillows for $2 each.

Yet, when I looked for a heart-shaped pillow recently, I couldn’t find anything less than $20.

As I already had a specific material I wanted to cover it in, I wasn’t prepared to spend this so decided to convert one of the square pillows I already had.

I’m not a fan of sewing so try to avoid it whenever possible, which is why I came up with the no-sew heart pillow.

Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday project.

Your old shirt can look so beautiful and hold so many new and artistic memories

I know, you just can’t possibly get rid of that stained shirt. It’s the shirt you wore the first time you took a bus to the city and talked to that stranger who knew your crazy cousin Ed.

Oh, and that lonely earring. You lost the other one four years ago but it could still show up, right? It’s your lucky earring. The last time you wore it you found a shiny five cent coin on the ground.

We all have things we can’t manage to let go of when trying to de-clutter our spaces. Often they are silly, useless things that are loaded with some sentimental meaning just for us.

The only way to deal with these things is to transform them into something useful. That way you can still enjoy the wonderful memories they bring instead of having them take up space in your wardrobe or jewellery box.

GIFTS TO MAKE MAMA CRY

85TH BIRTHDAYS

It was a huge year for birthdays in our family this year. All remaining great-grandparents are celebrating their 85th year.

85,  what a milestone!  Party time!

My in-laws live interstate but Mum is nearby so it made sense to plan a party.

I chose the theme of flowers as it has special meaning for my Mum and me. (Be sure to check out Wacky Workshops for a wonderful flower related craft). I made flower-shaped food and flower party bags and decorations.

The only thing left to do was buy the gift. Easy right?
