Pillow Project Completed

Back in April, my girl Kris and I got together to have a girls' crafty night. It was WONDERFUL and I think I was a little nieve to think that we would actually accomplish this pillow craft in one night. Of course, we just had fun talking and eating and laughing and enjoying each other with crafts on the side. So we each took our craft home and were determined to finish it eventually. Kris finished hers much quicker than I was able. 

Here is V and Co's tutorial for the pillow


Here is my pillow. 
And this is my first pillow case so it was a learning experience.
It's shaped weird, I guess.  
 And I really didn't know what I was doing with the zipper - you'd think that zippers would come with sewing instructions - they don't. This was my first zipper experience, you see.
Making the little roses was fun, and took a lot of time. It was even trickier sewing them onto the pillow case - I think - but maybe I just didn't have the best method. 
The fabric is Jersey so it is sooo soft and comfy.

Here is Kristen's finished pillow

I think we need to have another craft night. I was also going to ask you if you still had that little bit of fabric I left at your place. If you do, could I get it from you sometime? ( I am thinking of making one for my sister in law for Christmas and have extra flowers) Let me know. :) and sorry if my comment the other day sounded rude, I really didn't intend it to.

P.S. I think I like yours better. You were smarter in your choice of fabric.
