new pillows

I have been sewing up a storm!
I go through periods where I love to sew, and then there are times that I could drop kick my sewing machine. I have found some great tools that make sewing so much easier......the first
are these electric scissors....circa 1960's. These scissors are amazing...they cut fast, and they cut everything.

(if you want a pair they do have a set on etsy)

the best thing ever.....this vintage Singer 185j. I found this machine on the side of road in a garbage pile. It needed a new $4.00 belt, and it has been great ever since. It's a work horse!
It's not fussy like my modern one (which is constantly pissing me off), it doesn't require constant pampering, re-threading, or tension adjusting. It just sews.................
They just don't make things like they use to!

I made these pillows yesterday. The photos stink.....It's snowing, so the lighting in my house is less than ideal.

the pillows are adorned with flowers broaches, and vintage buttons.

this pillow has a 3D flower on the top right.

I will be posting these in my ETSY shop.
I also plan on doing other sets as well.

I just love this little owl...I bought it on ETSY
on this site Sewciopath

the craftsmanship is perfect.... if only I could sew this type of detailing.
