SO.........WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON TODAY??

Might as well show off some more pillows. We had a marathon this past week!
This order consisted of 13 pillows- various sizes out of these 5 fabrics.
We combined this order with another dozen or so pillows to cut out and sew by color so we could minimize re-threading the machine.
The most fun part of making a big batch of pillows is rummaging through the zipper bin and picking out the right color zipper for each fabric. I guess I keep about 35 colors in stock, but sometimes I have to go to a local fabric store for a special color, like the bright orange in the bottom left corner. Invisible zipper tape didn't come in that orange, so I got regular zippers and did a lapped zipper closure. I couldn't even remember how to do it!- but after 3 of them it all came back.
