Porch Pillows

My little clone and I decided to make new pillow covers for the front porch furniture for the 4th of July.

We used scraps of leftover fabric, rather than buying anything. (We just use the same pillow inserts, each time, and rotate the exteriors. The old ones are washed and on the shelf, -ready to be used again in the future!)

Kimba at A Soft Place to Land is hosting a "Do it Yourself" blog party, today.

Does it count as "Do it Yourself" if your 13 year old helped you sew?

Pin It!

I just announced to my daughter that she is going to have to start sewing for me. So I think it is a GREAT idea and it totally counts :-)

Love the new pillows!

I love these pillows! So adorable, and I certainly think it counts - EVEN MORE - if you enlist the help of a 13 year old! :)

What a gift you are giving your daughter - the ability to sew! How I wish I knew how to sew.
