I do not sew well. The patience required for careful measuring is not something I have. Thankfully, Margaret came over to help with the whole "measure twice, cut once" thing.
Between the two of us, we took four old, sunbleached curtains and four Ikea fillers and made a set of lovely velvet pillows for the day bed. I really like how the blue velvet breaks up the contrast between the black bedding and white frame.
