While at the Sewing Summit, I felt really inspired after Jess showed us how to do improv curves. Curves and I are pretty tight, after all the curves in the Single Girl, but I'd never actually tried an improv curve. Once I nailed one of them, I kind of couldn't stop. I just kept cutting from my stack of fabrics that I pulled and adding them together organically. I started with a few fussy cut pieces, inspired by Amanda's love for all things fussy cut, and just went to town on this one.
I even got courageous enough to add a zipper to this pillow, rather than my usual envelope closure. I love that zippers don't scare me anymore. After all the fun zippy pouches I made for the Sewing Summit, I think I can officially call my zipper fear conquered. I love the clean look a zipper adds to a pillow, maybe I'll even try an invisible zipper on the next one.
