Pink Piping Eyeglass Pillow

Super Awesome Eyeglasses pillow with pink piping! | made by a happy stitch

Every time I make a pillow I think of that scene from Sex in the City when Charlotte is getting ready to go to bed and she just keeps pulling pillow after pillow off the bed.  A scene invented to point out how ludicrous it is to have so many bed pillows.  Yeah, that one. My husband loves that scene, it proves one of his long-standing beefs with my love of decorative pillows.  But, how could I resist this pillow? This pillow is not to be denied.

It’s another sample for one of my upcoming classes at Rock Paper Scissors. I was so excited to get to work with more echino fabric. The pattern is my own design and super simple, as pillows usually are. I decided to make my own piping for the pillow and couldn’t resist playing with some Liberty of London Lifestyle I’ve had for a long time.  Somehow the small print with hot pink and hints of bright green were just exactly what this mostly-neutral pillow needed. I love this pillow. Really, the eyeglasses print is just too great.  As a four-eyed person myself, I really appreciate being able to celebrate the nerdiness sometimes. Especially with a little pink thrown in, huzzah!

It has a zipper closure on the back so it can be removed and washed.  This class is considered a part of the Beginner Sewing series because I teach how to easily put in a zipper and add piping but everything else is a cinch.

Like I said, this is a class sample so it is living at the shop right now but you had better believe I plan on placing it on my bed as soon as I get it back home.  Prepare yourself to be amazed, husband.

In addition to this pillow and the smolderingly adorable Geranium Dress I talked about yesterday I’m also teaching The Washi Dress and PJ pants starting soon.  So, go sign up you! You know it will be an awesome time!
