Sometimes when you really want to find a fabric that works in a room you can't find anything. Then there are those times you are just walking around JoAnn's and you stumble across the perfect fabric. The latter happened to me last week. I found this very pretty fabric in JoAnn's for $6.99 a yard so I bought one yard. I was pretty sure it would go in my living room. When I got home I was so happy to see that it really did have the perfect colors for the room.
Right away I got to work on some new pillows. Because I wasn't 100% sure about the colors when I was standing in the store I only bought one yard of fabric.
That's ok...I had some coordinating fabric I bought a while ago that worked and I sewed up some pillows using the same tutorial I used here. Honestly, since I learned how to sew a pillow with a zipper, pillow making has become so much easier. I whipped out three pillows in less than a half hour. The blue/grey solid fabric picked up on those same tones in the floral fabric as well as the blue/grey in my Serena and Lily awesome throw from Home Goods.
One of the reasons I made these pillows is I wanted to simply how many different patterns I had on both sofas. I think the more unified look is easier on the eye.
In order to achieve this, I really needed one more gold pillow. I went through my stash of fabric and found enough of the gold fabric left to make one more pillow with a zipper. Yay!
So what do you think of my new pillows?
Have a great day.
