weekend project

hello! I have been a busy bee lining up work and projects and planning what my next move is. Times are tough, and this economic crisis is affecting everyone around me. Honestly, I am starting to be very nervous. I know it will get better, and I feel good about that, but for now I have been finding ways to hunker down and tighten the purse strings.

One goal I set last week was to make something from this lovely book that Katie gave me for xmas this year:
French General: Home Sewn: 30 Projects for Every Room in the House.
There are a lot of adorable projects in this book, and they really focus on using antique linens and flea market fabric, which I don't have in my collection at all. I just used whatever fabric I have in copious amounts, which ended up being from Ikea.

This project was the French Pouf Floor Pillow. It's huge! Rather than logically think about how large this was going to be, i just started cutting out the pattern and whistled contentedly. It's 3 feet wide. My dog is only 10 inches from nose to tail.
I still need to add more stuffing and attach the middle buttons, but i am pretty happy with it over all. Plus, I learned something new, and what better time to become better at my craft than now?
