Pillow Talk

One of the easiest ways to update and freshen up the look of your living rooms is through pillows! Now, I'm not the type that has a ridiculous amount of pillows on my couch, I just need a few.

I found this great Alexander Henry fabric at Michael Levine Fabric downtown. In a previous post I used the same fabric in blue to cover my dining chairs. I love the geometric pattern and the colors go well with the other items I have in my living room :)

I started by cutting squares with the pattern centered, then placed the pieces front to front and started to sew leaving a hole big enough for my had to fit through.
Once sewn, I turned the pillows inside out.

Next, I stuffed them with poly fill. In order for the pillow to keep it's shape, its important to over stuff it.

Finally, I did a tidy whip-stitch to finish the pillows off.

I fluffed the finished pillows and threw them on the couch. I love the way they compliment my favorite quilt!
Now, its a matter of how long these ones will last until I decide I want to redecorate again ;)
