I tried to post this yesterday, but blogger was having the hiccups.  Then in the afternoon a big storm took our power for 8 hours.  Let's try again.

In my quest to sew from my stash this summer, and since the dog chewed on one of the pillow covers I made for my daughter, I had to make new ones.  I finally got my hands on some of those cute typewriters a while ago and my daughter loved them.  So a plan was born.  Here's what she sketched and I sewed:

 She had three, we decided to make 5.  I am finally getting proficient at putting in zippers.
                                          There are two of this one, to anchor the whole lot.
                                                    I love all the colors in this one.
                                                   Another favorite, I guess I love them all.
 I made this to use up the typewriters at the ends which weren't whole.  I'm not wasting one of those babies!
And here they are in their new home.  They look so pretty and give a real punch of color to the room.
Hope you have a great day.

The pillow covers were fun...the storm, not so much. Very scary.
