When I was in 8th grade, I was in our school's Art Club. We actually did some really cool things, including learning to batik! I made this awesome rainbow fabric (really, what else would I make?), then sewed the skirt myself (with lots of help from my mom):
Yep, that's 13-year-old me. Freakishly-tan 13-year-old me. Couldn't-live-without-a-Velcro-watch 13-year-old me. Moving on before I get to the hair....
I had a little piece of the fabric left that I realized was the perfect size for a pillow. I even purchased a pillow form like 4 years ago. But I never sewed it into a pillow because I wanted it to be zippered and I didn't know how to use a zipper and also I'd have to buy a zipper.
But recently, I found an old dress that had been designated a "Use for Parts" dress, so I took the zipper and made this pillow:
It's different on the other side:
And look! I sewed in a zipper all by myself!
And it functions!
Martha loves the pillow, too:
