Another project down!!!

Yea! I have been working on this one for a while too. My in-laws just finished adding on to their lake house. One of the rooms is a Harley themed room. Over the holidays last year I saw these pillowcases at Wal-mart (love the flames!). It actually came with a set of pillowcases and a set of sheets. The sheets were just black and white; not quite as hideous as these pillowcases!

I wanted to make two big pillows for lounging on the floor and two throw pillows for the couch or window seat. So after cutting these fabulous pillowcases this is what they ended up looking like.
Not too shabby if you ask me! I finished the first big pillow in April (that tells you how long it has been on my to-do list!) The second one has been half finished for a while, but I finally got to it AND I started and finished the small pillows today! That's really not a huge accomplishment for most, but it is for me who rarely starts and finishes something in one day.
I love the ribbon on this one. It is kind of hard to see it, but it is black with white polka dots that borders the orange. My husband wasn't on board with it, but I had to fru-fru it up a little. Now on to some more projects =)
