Moda Bake Shop Contest

I thought I took a picture of the trash can before it was covered. It was a dull gray can...uuuuuggggglllllyyyy!!!

So from Drab to Fab!!

The competition is called SLICED and you can find the rules at Moda Bake Shop. For this round, you have to use a Moda Precut, batting and a buckle. It has to be an office or studio Accessory.
I made a pillow for the back or bum. The buckle is in the back, it attaches the pillow to the back of the chair or bottom. I can not tell you how many times my butt pillow has fallen when I have gotten up. Really irritating, now it won't.

My bum will not know what to do sitting in such comfort.

The deadline is February 29th, let your creative juices flow and go on over and enter!!

Don't forget about my pattern giveaway below....

Barb, love the trash can cover and very clever cushion with a deco pin to hold it in place. Great job!!!

Kelli said...

So pretty Barb! Good luck in the contest! xo

Love the pillow. I don't need a pillow as I have a comfy chair but Daughter complains that her chair in my sewing room is too hard and that she needs a pillow. Buckle would be ideal as she is a wriggler - not for her the pillow :-)

Lovely . I cut bits into regular width strips . I use them for diary covers ,or sewing rolls

Vicki ♥ said...

You will win. That is the most beautiful trashcan I have ever seen. I see a tutorial in your future. I love the pillow and that fabric is luscious. I need a pillow for my chair. May have to put that on my project list.

Gene Black said...

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

Great job Barb! Those yucky drab garbage cans always stick out like a sore thumb. Now it can be shown in all it's beauty!

It drives me nuts every time a pillow falls off a chair or the couch. Grrr!

Heather said...

Barb, that trash can is GORGEOUS! I love what you did to it...it's a really GREAT idea. Your tush cush pillow is pretty amazing, too. I'm going to be following along (not participating) on this challenge and I hope YOU win! :o)

XOXO,

Barbara said...

Love those bows sewn in! Very pretty.

Debi said...

Love them both Barb, you are so creative. I would be afraid someone would steal my trashcan right out of my office! Good thing my office door locks!

Sheila said...

Wow , both are beautiful, as I said you are very creative!!

Karen Bates said...

What a cute way to spruce up a old waste basket! You are now sittin' pretty!

Needled Mom said...

Very cute, Barb. Good luck!

Sasha said...

Good luck Barb!!!!! I love your entries!! You are so creative. I never would have though of putting a buckle on the back of a pillow to keep it from falling off. I probably would have just used Hello Kitty duct tape or something lol!!!! Oh and your trash can is too cute to use now =P

Claire Jain said...

I love how you incorporated the buckle. I was wondering how folks were going to do that.

Carrie P. said...

West Michigan Quilter said...

You sure know how to pretty things up! Great job.

Snoodles said...

Both of those projects are beautiful - I wonder, tho, how will you stand to throw anything in that gorgeous trash can any more? LOL No ice cream sandwich wrappers, anyway. :) I'm off to look at your competition - bet they are quaking in their quilted boots!

Madame Samm said...

no trash about this....it is lovely..

danih03 said...

Omg I just saw this challenge last night and had the very same pillow idea! Great minds must think alike. I don't know if I will actually do this challege, but if I do, I guess I will have to come up with another idea..hahaha:)

suemac said...

Cute ideas.

Susan said...

Great projects, both of them. I love the buckle on the side of the trash can, and the ribbons on the pillow are so festive.

SewCalGal said...
