I’ve mentioned before that I LOVE my hairdresser and I get my hair cut in exchange for homemade items. She’s creative, artistic and a lot of fun, and enjoying decorating her family’s new house. She has used a lot of bright colors—even a dark turquoise music room. I thought her family could enjoy some comfy pillows that would also make a fun statement.
I used fleece for both pillows.
I followed V & Co’s Shag Pillow tutorial for the turquoise one. It would have been fairly simple and quick if my machine hadn’t kept jamming on me.
For the red pillow I modified Living Savvy’s Textured Felt Pillow. Instead of overlapping the strips where they were sewed down after each twist, I just sewed them side by side. My hair dresser loved the pillows. And I love my hair cut. So it’s a great deal all around!
In other news… I’ve had quite a few people mention in comments that they aren’t sure where to start in looking for a serger, or that they don’t know how to use the one they have. Or even saying they wish they had a serger. If I were to do a Tips & Tools post about sergers, what information would you want me to cover?
Thanks for stopping by!
