Springy

!
The pillow covers arrived! But guess what...the birds I thought were red? They were pink. Shoot! Never you mind that, though. I fixed them :) The first attempt at creatively fixing them was a complete disaster. Mind you I'm not crafty at.all. But I though, hey, maybe I can get some red fabric, trace the birds on it and iron them over the pink birds. Yeah. right. I tried it. Luckily I tested it before I applied it to the covers because the fabric I purchased totally melted! I even made sure to ask if it would work and the lovely lady at JoAnn Fabric said yes. She lied. Hmmm, what to do now? I know! Do they make fabric pens? YES, yes they do! So I bought a red one and a black one to try out. Perfection! I used the red pen and just colored over the pink. You can't even really tell. I am a genius! Also, I want to give credit to Elisabeth at http://www.etsy.com/shop/purplepajamas, who made the pillow covers, and who was so sweet and willing to refund me. The covers look awesome and I'm glad we are able to make them work!
