The unexpected from unusual fabrics

One of the reasons I love teaching classes without kits is I get to see one project presented lot of different ways.  Recently I taught a class for a traditionally sewn heirloom pillow sleeve.  The original was all cream and white, with the main fabric being an ecru silk dupione.  One of my students came with a lovely little floral fabric, and her pillow was absolutely adorable.  So, step out of the box and use a new fabric.  You  might enjoy your creation even more than what the pattern suggested!
