Now don't faint.......I am actually posting in the sewing section and no it is not a mistake..LOL..I bought some fabrics that I thought would make nice pillow covers and found a you tube video on making an envelope case....this is my first attempt and am quite pleased with it......will see how these go over in the show, I only bought 10 pillow inserts to start, these are too hard to store if they don't sell.....

Brilliant Vicki. You are just so clever with things I cannot do.

These are adorable! I think they will go over big with the moms. The cover is removable and washable when the kids get tem dirty ! Good luck!

Looks great. They will sell well.
Just a thought,...Maybe you could offer the covers separately for people that already have the inserts. You could keep a few of the inserts for display cushions and to sell to those that want to buy them from you and it will save you time and space.

I do the little travel pillows in teacher prints for teachers' sore backs. (Too much sitting in hard chairs.) Nice for Teacher Christmas or Teacher Year-End gifts. I only take 4 or 5 pillows to a show, but a lot more pillowcases. I find lots of folk need a new pillowcase for a small pillow they already own, so the pillowcases alone sell well.

Expanding the Horizon? Knowing you, I would not be surprised if we see a lot more sewing in the future. Good for you. I wish you a whole lot of success with your market.

Well, I nearly did faint - I am so impressed with your skills Vicki. I can see all sorts of things with this! Maybe you could do an ITH version.

I see Sue has suggested Zips!!!! And Kim suggested buttons and buttonholes - endless possibilities, he he he, ha ha ha!

Only teasing, it looks great. Love Chris

Nice job, Vicki...if you don't want to tackle zips, then it must be buttons and buttonholes!
