Considering the number of finished things that I haven't blogged about yet I thought I'd better get cracking. First up is my new pillow cover made entirely of leftover binding from the Random Reflections quilt. It's entirely improvised but I'm really happy with the result, plus it's covering one of my ugly couch cushions.
I'm not sure if I miscalculated or the pattern was overly generous but once I'd bound off that quilt I was left with a ton of extra binding tape. Reams of the stuff. So I shoved it in a box with some notions to be forgotten, when it dawned on me that it might be a really simple way to make a pleated pillow top.
It's just a square of fabric with strips of bias binding tape sewn on. At first I was a little nervous that there wouldn't be enough but it worked out almost perfectly. Once the top was covered I used some leftover backing fabric from the same quilt to make a simple envelop back. Simple and quick projects are hard to resist.
