Pillow Talk

Even though my week has admittedly not been cushy, all of my projects have been.

I finally got around to whipping up a few new pillows {I used my unusual piping technique to make them}. I made the two blue pillows. I've had the fabric since February SO now I can finally check that off my to do list.


For my birthday I got a state throw pillow from Red Envelope. I am usually a DIYer for projects like this but the quality and design were absolutely flawless from Red Envelope {and they were half off at the time}. Not to disappoint, I did add a DIY touch, I embroidered a heart to mark our fair city.


What happened to the freezer stencil pillows that had been on this sofa before? Well, I moved them to the bedroom. Can you guess what side of the bed is mine :)


Riley didn't seem to care that I switched out the pillows. Apparently, these are just as comfortable.


And, in preparation for my meeting with the children's boutique, I have been whipping up tooth fairy pillows.


The teeth came marching in two by two, hurrah, hurrah.


This tooth has a cavity aka seam that still needs to be closed.


Cushy projects or not, I am glad to wrap up this week and enjoy the weekend.

Let the pillow fight commence:

  9. Those are so great! I used to sew (clothing) but with 2 kids I just don't have the time anymore. There are some pants that I have been wanting to make for a long time. Maybe I can finally get to them soon...
