December Creative Play Day 2: Color Jazzed Pillows by Candace Jedrowicz

Color Jazz 1 December Creative Play Day 2: Color Jazzed Pillows by Candace JedrowiczThe Cool2Craft Creative Play theme for December is “Give Yourself a Gift.” You give to everyone else during the holidays and all year long. Time to give yourself a treat! Make something, go somewhere, do something that’s just for you and photograph it! Then share it with us – post it on the Cool2Craft Creative Play blog on the Hive. Anything goes! I’m going to run with this theme and craft every day in December. I’ll be posting tutorials and videos as well as making some kits available at the Marketplace. Join me on Cool2Craft for 31 days of blissful, healing, creative play and give yourself the gift of play, too! [Candace J.]

I thrive on color!  When I see the sunset turn our mountains pink, I breathe that magic in.  So, this is my color challenged bed.  Now, we could get a new bedspread, but we have a 16 year old mini poodle and the smack dab center of that bed is his.  We won’t be getting a nice new one until he decides to leave us, bless his heart.

For this project, I used:

1 Yard of fabulous fleece

My three pillows, two square, one rectangle

Purple thread and fine needle

My old Singer sewing machine

Buttons from my grandma’s collection

Color Jazz 2 300x284 December Creative Play Day 2: Color Jazzed Pillows by Candace Jedrowicz This was so easy, I did in one afternoon!

I measured all the way around one pillow and one side going the opposite direction.

Color Jazz 3 300x199 December Creative Play Day 2: Color Jazzed Pillows by Candace Jedrowicz I added ten inches to the all-the-way-around measurement to make a flap to fold over.
Color Jazz 4 300x232 December Creative Play Day 2: Color Jazzed Pillows by Candace Jedrowicz I folded the rectangle one whole length of the pillow and overlapped the rest and sewed a seam down both sides rounding the corners.  Then I trimmed the seams.
