Okay, if you don't know who The Nester is you probably think I am crazy. You can check out all of her mistreatments here. These are her definitions:
Mistreatment: (n). covering for a window that is quick, cheap and pretty. may or may not need hardware does not require sewing. a real designer’s worst nightmare.
Mistreating: (v). the act of treating a window with dignity and respect without use of the following: hundreds of dollars, sewing, time, crying, divorce, child neglect…
Well here's the thing, I didn't do a curtain, I did a pillow. Does that count? Well any whooo, she inspired me and I'm calling it a mistreatment ( please forgive me Nester, I promise to do a window next time, I promise I like to follow rules really I do). Are you sick of my rambling yet, it's what happens when I talk to or about people I admire. I become a total goof, just ask The The Pioneer Woman or Bakerella.
So with out further rambling, here goes nothing.
I grabbed some pillows from Little Sisters bed.
And my trusty glue gun, Bertha.
I started by cutting some clearance fabric from Joann's into 2 in. wide pieces.
I glued the edges of the fabric onto the ends of the pillow covers.
I found the center of the pillow and the center of the fabric and glued there. I continued doing this all the way down the pillow.
Making what looks to me like ribbon candy. I love the unfinished edges, I think it is a good contrast on such a frilly pillow. I did 4 stripes this way, until I ended up with this.
So what do you think, can a pillow be a mistreatment also?
