Sorry still no digital camera :(
Isn't the fabric cute! Unfortunately it isn't soft. Hopefully it softens up, but I guess until then it is a good thing my BF has a beard. I even free-hand embroidered a little heart. I am not sure if he is going to like that part or not.
I used The Texas Cottage Blog Tutorial. It was definitely a quick easy project. But I did learn a couple lessons.
1) When she says use a half inch seam use it! I did 1/4 inch and didn't catch all the layers. So when I put the pillow in the fabric pulled away from the seam.
2) When I sewed the hem in the photo, I did it too close to the end of the fold. I guess I should have given the raw edge a little bit of space.
3) Use fabric softener for cheap Joann' fabric.
The boyfriend doesn't really like presents, but I am hoping that he will use it when they are camping out on fires. I guess we shall see if it makes the cut!
