How to Make a Pillow with an Invisible Zipper while Drinking Mojitos & Giveaway

WARNING: This post contains crafting and drinking.  The owner of this blog does not promote mixing the two on a regular basis.  She just felt it would make shooting a video a lot easier. Instead it just made it take a really long time and added some extra embarassment.

So I had this idea... "How To Happy Hour". Basically its an excuse to drink and get projects off my list. I would give a DIY video demo of some basics, and/or whatever people wanted to see and serve cocktails while doing so. My friend Cheryle was kind enough to join me for this one since she is a great sewer and me not so much.

We decided to whip up a pillow with an invisible zipper because that's harder than it looks and most of us could use a refresher. Adding alcohol to the mix seemed like a good idea. We did have fun, but I had to edit most of the video away because we got a little too chatty and distracted. I think I glazed over a few times as Cheryle was explaining cutting on a bias. The end result is embarassing and I can't believe I am actually going to hit "Publish Post". Not to sure how easy these directions are to follow, but we had a good time. We just need to be more consise and stay focused. I promise to make any future videos much shorter and less inebriated.

Did you paint that zebra print work table in the picture? I would LOVE to know how to do that.

I just bought the same fabric to make throw pillows! Got it in the mail yesterday. Now I'm thinking yellow piping might be a must. I'm not ambitious enough for zippers, but I am ambitious enough for mojitos!

Too much fun for two girls all at once :) Love it.

I would love it if you can share some really easy slip covers, especially for the back of chairs.

I can sew, barely, but I get so frustrated. Easy projects that are quick to do are my cup of tea.
