Another Pillow

I actually made this pillow cover over a month ago, but I made it at night when the lighting was bad and kept for getting to take a picture in the daylight.

I love making these pillow cases because they are SO EASY.  Next time I'll try to remember and make a tutorial of it.  Seriously- 30 minutes tops!
 The blue is it.  I saw it at American Quilting and thought it would go great in my living room (which I'm just realizing I didn't get an over all shot...) and couldn't pass up the 20% off price tag :)  However, since it is a quilting fabric, I had to do something slightly trickier, because the width was only 42" wide and I usually make covers with home fabrics (usually 54" width).  So, what did I do?  I made it wider by adding a little sumpin' sumpin' to each end that is only visible upon further inspection.
It actually makes me really happy to have the contrast.  I'm the kind of person who falls in love with a piece of clothing because of the color of the lining... which really makes no sense because nobody really sees that...

I guess for me, it's what's on the inside that counts :D

Oh I agree, the contrast is lovely. Never mind that it won't be visible :)
