Thanks to the Scrappy Mail Swap, which is currently in its 2nd round, I have so many 2.5 inch square pieces of just the best, most awesome fabric. In attempt to use what I received from round 1 and make room for the squares that are currently on the way to my mailbox, I turned a stack of scrappy squares into a pillow cover!
Those perfect points are not due to my awesome precision skills! I used the following tutorial from Elizabeth Hartman that @marionberries shared in round 1 of Scrappy Mail.
It was so easy and really achieved a level of alignment I’m usually not capable of! I admit that I did take some shortcuts. I did not create any sort of grid to lay out my squares - just placed them on the interfacing. I also used my rotary cutter to very carefully snip the folded edges for each row. Worked for me!
The back is a little scrappy, too:
I feel like I missed an opportunity to add a scrappy strip of squares to the back. Maybe next time!
Thanks for looking.
