No Cost Pillows…

Little known fact…I’ve never had pillows on my couch, other than the standard matching ones that come with the couch.  I think the reason is I love fabric SO much I can never commit!

Before…

Well, that’s all changed.  It’s taken a while,  but I finally have very pretty pillows on my couch…

I’ve had the white patterned fabric for about a year and the aqua since summer…

Now, the “no cost” part comes with the pink pillow…after the massive clean up of 2012 I found a pink tablecloth I bought 5+ years ago, Isaac Mizrah at Target.  I didn’t have the heart to pitch it and I’m so glad I didn’t…

The white pleated  trim I made from some muslin I had laying around…I also had the yellow fabric I bought for some pillows I never ended up making…

The aqua pillow is felt…I used the tutorial from Tiffany at Living Savvy,  found here…I twisted and pinned all the strips before I started sewing…

I love the way they look and have threatened all family members within an inch of their lives if I see them thrown on the floor!!
