About 6 months ago, Connor and I got this runner from Ikea. I love it, but it doesn’t fit the new table Connor made for us. And since I seem to have weird manic episodes where I think pillows should be interchangeable on a weekly basis, I decided to go ahead and feed that impulse and turn this striped table runner into a striped pillow.
I need to clarify, for the record, that I am a lazy sewer. I don’t usually sew zippers or piping onto my pillow covers. I just use the ole fashioned sew-it-inside-out-and-handstitch-the-last-edge method. One day, I promise to make a proper pillow . Until then, for those of you that wonder (and you know who YOU are!!!), Here is the “secret stitch”. I like to keep the secret stitch on the bottom side of the pillow so no one will see it. There. Now you know everything.
I decided to throw this guy on our bed, since my past attempts to cover our bed in throw pillows has resulted in a pile of throw pillows collecting dust in the corner of the room. One should be easy to keep up with.
