Nacho Daddy and I celebrated our anniversary, so I decided to make his/our present. Big Mistake.
I got a little cocky. You see, I’ve never made a pillow cover before, and I’ve never installed an invisible zipper before, but something told me, hey, you can do it. (It’s probably all those motivating messages that The Universe sends me everyday. I’ve come to believe they are true and that I can’t fail at anything.) Ha! The joke is on me.
Problem #1: Stamping would have been much cuter than embroidery.
Problem #2: I didn’t have an invisible zipper foot, and I didn’t know how to put in a zipper, so I just winged it. And thus, it looks like a kindergarten student put it in. Mostly because it sure isn’t invisible– in fact, it’s kind of billboard-ish (18 inch pillow).
Problem #3: I put the %^&* zipper in on top instead of on bottom! Really?!
Problem #4: I forgot to use my awesome trims that I bought to go with this fabric.
Problem #5: I wasted my beautiful French General fabric on a crappy pillow.
Problem #6: 8th anniversary isn’t year of the pillow.
