Barbarums birthday and a small give away

Babarum is a Belgian online fabric shop. To celebrate its 2nd birthday, owner Jelle invited five bloggers to choose some fabric from her shop to sew with. Since my aunt had just celebrated her birthday too and since she had hinted me that she'd like some cushions for her new couch, I let her choose the fabric and sewed pillowcases.

For the first two pillowcases I used quilting cotton, piping and a blind zipper. 
For the next two I used knits. My aunt had gifted me a Ferm Living cushion for Christmas which had one side in knit fabric and I just love the softness of it. I ironed some edge tape onto the edges to prevent the fabric from stretching while sewing.
The last one is a combination of both: one side in knits, one side in cotton.  Combining the two fabric types went surprisingly well and I think I will do this again in the future! 
The fifth pillow wasn't sewn by me but by my cousin. A few years ago he sewed a skirt for his moms birthday (blogged in Dutch here). When he heard about my sewing plans for her birthday this year, he wanted to help. No blind zipper or piping for this one, but he did all the cutting and sewing all by himself and he was so proud! He insisted on showing it here ;)

When I see her beautiful new couch with its colorful pillows, I'm a little jealous ;) Enjoy the softness, Sylvie!
