Luckily before all the chaos starts, I actually got a few things done this weekend. And what am I most proud of you ask? Well it's the fantastic pillows I made to replace the Cosby sweater pillows we had. Here's a quick recap of the old pillows. Not really our style at all.
|They remind me of a Cosby sweater|
And here is some of the fabric we picked out. Oh so pretty. I love the orange and red one. It's so soft and silky. It was pricey, very pricey. Lets just say I've never been so happy to use a 50% off coupon. But it was worth it.
And after what I'm pretty sure was a thousand hours, three finished pillows. They have hidden zippers and brown pipping around the edges. Hell yeah, I'm pretty awesome, especially since I hate sewing. Absolutely hate it. But now that we own a house, I better get use to sewing all the time. Blah.
|Soooo Much Better!|
I'm planning on maybe making a few more pillows in red and then a few in a cream color to tie in the rug and accents. That's the nice thing about this couch, it's huge, so I have plenty of room to fill with wonderful throw pillows.
|Looks better already (ignore the ridiculous mess)!|
I got a lot more done this weekend, but I'm going to save that until tomorrow. Now you have to come back :-)
