easy pillow covers tute

I had this fabric for quite some time but some how it was away from my sight so i forgot about it , yesterday i found it in a cupboard and was totally in love with the print once again and i remembered how this fabric caught my attention in the fabric store all of the sudden and i bought enough to make a bed sheet with pillow covers,

pillow covers are really easy to make
for example the length of your pillow is 20inches then that's how you will cut the fabric
double the length of your pillow and add extra 5to7 inches and width of the fabric will be kept enough to occupy pillow inside the cover easily .

now with the wrong side up fold your fabric in double, measuring it to fit your pillow(20inches) leaving the extra 7 inches on one side

now fold the extra 7inches over your double folded fabric and pin up

now stitch the sides turn the pillow cover inside out and slid in your pillow and that's it all done !

the 7 inch fold you created would automatically go inside and it will help to stop your pillow from slipping out of your cover if you want you may also add a titch button in the middle of the opening

sweet dreams :)

free hand pot painting

I painted this little terracotta pot some 15 years ago :) yup it will soon be a vintage item now ! i was studding back then and pot painting became my hobby for a while .This vase is one of many pots that i painted and it still is with me :) rest of them were given to friends and relatives as gifts, if i saw them ever i will definitely share them with you all

I drew a free hand floral design with a pencil and then painted it with simple poster paints ! shades of brown are used with a out line of darker tone ,the out line is drawn with a zero size brush .The mistake i committed was that i never coated it with clear varnish because of which the white back ground developed a bit shabby look over the time, which as a matter of fact i like now :) again a mistake that turned out great (the regular readers of my blog will under stand what i am talking about for the newbies click hear)

a bit more detailed look of the floral design and my camera just could not bare the beauty so it took a blurred pic :(

by the way now i have sprayed it with clear lacquer spray to save the shabby look from turning into a dirty look :)
