A couple of months ago, I had a dream…yes I know for all of my musical theatre friends that’s a song cue!  But in this case I did have a dream and it was about me adding pillows to my inventory for flips by phipps.  Last year I started trying to add a few things to my flea market spot that weren’t furniture–smaller things– like clocks made out of records, lanterns made out of wine bottles, so why not pillows?  And the fun thing is you flip them…

One one side it says…

pillow1And on the other side it says…






Get it??  These are just the prototypes.  My sewing skills aren’t great but I think once I get the hang of it I can make them and make them look nice.  There is also quite a bit of hand finishing.  The real issue is the letters are iron on, and I can get a packet with all the letters I need except one.  In the packets there are two of each letter except for “F” how annoying!!!!  And the packets aren’t cheap.  So I figure I’ll make a couple more pillows and see how they do at the market this season.  If they’re a hit, I’ll look into having the wording silk screened.

What do you think?  Suggestions??
