If you like to sew, now you’ll love it even more. Jo-Ann has join forces and creativity with HGTV to bring a new and colorful collection of fabrics. This new line has upholstery, print and outdoor fabrics besides a great compilation of beautiful trims and the best part is they are all available either on their store or online.
Jo-Ann has kindly send me some beautiful pieces to make something for my readers. So I decided to start by making some new toss pillow covers. Since these were covers, I placed a zipper on the bottom of the cushions for easy cleaning. If your are doing these using an old pillow, measure it but remember to add 1/2 inch to each side for seam purposes. For the zipper, I just followed this easy tutorial.
These were very easy to do. The fabric feels strong and resistant which is a good thing to keep in mind when one has children around the house. I love the colors and patterns because they can be mix and match with so many other things and in so many places. Here you’ll see how I placed them in my room over my bed, but also in my sofa and they were a delight to look at.
From now until May 4, Jo-Ann is having a 10% off on the HGTV fabrics collection. Take advantage of this great deal by printing their coupon available here and bringing it to the nearest Jo-Ann store. If you need some ideas on combinations, I’ve arranged some great ones so you don’t arrived empty handed to the store.
