cloth bag pillow project

IMG_0464

During the summer of 2012 we attended the wedding of some good friends of ours in Maui. Their favours for the guests were wonderful cloth bags filled with a local bottle of wine, coffee beans and lovely treats. I came across the cloth bag again this fall and it gave me an idea. Although super cute, seeing as it had our friends’ names on it, we thought it would be nice to gift it back to them for Christmas as a fun throw pillow.

The project was quite simple to do, but I think produced a great outcome. I simply took off each of the handles, turned the bag inside out, and sewed across the top opening leaving a small hole in which to fill the pillowcase with stuffing. After googling a how-to video on the ladder stitch, and redoing it three times, I finally nailed it.
