More Pillows!

Hello friends!
I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July. I sure did!
My parents were in town and we had a great time visiting and grilling out.

Today, I'm posting about a few pillows I made a while ago that I've been meaning to blog about!
(bad blogger)

In our family room we've got some couches that are leather and dark and overstuffed.
Can you guess who made that purchase before we were married? :)

For which, I am very grateful. :)
They are in great condition, just not what I would have picked out had I'd had a say.

Also, notice the raggedy pillows that have seen better days.
Mostly due to a white terrier, who shall remain nameless, that likes to waller on them.

So I made new pillows to replace the worn out ones.
I made sure to use fabrics that would help lighten up the sofas.

Here's how they turned out:

The larger ones were made from a designer remnent, my mom bought me.
(Hi Mom! Thanks Mom!)

I found the dandilion fabric 40% off at Hancocks. 

The larger ones are envelope pillows...meaning two pieces of fabric overlap
 on the back with no fasteners required.

The small dandilion pillows I added a zipper under a fold!
This may not seem exciting to you...but in the world of a beginning sewer,
this is HUGE!

Here's one more look!

Make sure you check back later this week for the biggest sewing project yet!
I'll give you a hint...24 yards of fabric were involved!

Have a great day!
