dirty pillows

dirty couch pillows are a serious concern of mine. I know for a fact the dog drools on them, and I suspect she’s not the only one (cough*wife*cough cough).  So I decided to make pillow covers for some pre-made 16’x16″ unfinished pillows I bought at Joann Fabrics…

I still have oodles of fleece left, and some ideas kicking around, and I came up with these yellow on yellow bubble minky pillow covers.  they are very similar, so they match on the couch, but unique so I don’t get bored…

The first is just alternating stripes of fleece/minky with 3 buttons and a flap:

pillow #1 - stripes
pillow #1 – stripes
back of strips #1
back of strips #1

pillow #2 came about a week later and I played with using more scraps and trying some free-hand quilting of the fleece.

I think I over sew.  I kind of do a double stitch. these pillows will never come apart…

pillow #2 - buttons with the flap less flappy

I consider these a success! and the dog thinks they are adequate.
