A great way to start the day.

The "Ugly" pillow.

I took my husband's suggestion and turned it into a pillow. I love it the same way I love a good mutt! And the best news? I used up ALL of the green and the magenta floral, most of the lavender batik, all but a 1.5" strip of the ugly blue, and the majority of the pink and white.

This is all that is left to speak of. The lavender pice is only about 6" x 16", so it will probably get cut into  strips to add to the boxes of strips, but to me that will "kill" it, too. I might kill the pink in the same way, just to be done with it.

I feel so energized having finished something! I do that sometimes in the middle of a more labor-intensive project... it helps me get going on the long project if I take a break midway to make and finish a small project like a pillow (even an ugly!).

  1. I wouldn't call this ugly ... you've taken interesting fabrics and made a great pillow. Congrats :)
