Clam Shell Pillow

Another Curves Class project!!  This one took a little more time, but mainly because of all the cute little clam shells I had to cut out.  I did this one in yellows and grays like the bunting so I can use it in my little girls room.  



It was a little tricky sewing the clam shells together.  You had to have everything lined up just right to sew each shell to the stem next to it.  But very fulfilling once I got it!  


I'm thinking some day I will make another one, but larger (18" maybe...) to go in her room as well.  I have a water bed frame-turned-bench that I'm refinishing for her room right now.  I plan on putting some cushions on it with some of these cute pillows!  Watch for the bench.  Someday I'll have it finished and blog about it.  Someday... :)


Check out Rachel at Stitched in Color.  She's the one teaching the Curves Class.  And check out the other projects I've blogged about from the class!
