For the Love of Pillows

Posted by Laura

I'm redesigning our living room and part of the project is to give my pillows a face lift. I learned to sew a couple of years ago and will probably never go out and buy a pre-made pillow ever again.  Hands down, I love to sew. Here's some of the non-traditional fabric I used:

Blue: 2 Napkins from Pier 1
Yellow: 2 Napkins from Target
Yellow/Gray Floral: Amy Butler Fabric (love her books and fabric)

The theme of the new living room will have yellows, grays and blues.  Take the jump and check out the before and afters.

Boring pillows from our first apartment (yawn)
