Sigh- Don't you just love pretty pillows? They make such a bold statement to a couch or bed. I love how much they can change the feel of a room or add a pop of color. I have tons of pillows to recover and its been awhile since I've made some. These pillows were easy to make thanks to my sister Mandy's tutorial found here. Before I sewed the back flaps of the pillow to the front I decided to make some fun designs. I've been inspired lately by funky t-shirts from Anthropologie & J-Crew. I love the tone on tone look as well. Subtle but with a touch of flair! Here's the two pillows that I came up with today.
This is supposed to be random leaves falling. I pinned them where I wanted them and then sewed them using the sewing machine. Once I had the front of the pillow the way I wanted it, I sewed the back flaps of the pillow on.
My kitchen which is adjacent to this room is painted a faux dark orange. So I chose to bring some of the orange into this space as well.
