A New Pillow, or Four

The covers we've had on our throw pillows in the living room have been in our house since we were married, almost five years ago.  I thought it was time for a change.  Using the green fabric leftover from this project, along with some other coordinating fabrics I "happened" to pick up, combined with some inspiration photos from online, I have four new pillows on our couches.  Well... they look brand new, at least. I can't ever get myself to buy new pillow forms while I still have perfectly good ones on the couch.  

This first picture is from my sister-in-law's blog 
and here is my version: 
 The last three inspiration pillows are all from Anthropologie

 We like things a little off-center in our house... 
 and a close-up of the cummerbund pleats that took me WAY longer than they should have:

They all have envelope closures so they're 1. easier to clean and 2. easier to replace the covers when I get bored of them.  I think they bring a little color and whimsy to the room, if that's not too cliche to say.  Aren't we all ready for spring to really be here, though? 


  1. Good Job! Those really look professionally done.

  2. Thanks! It was fun making them. Frustrating at times... but fun. :o)
