New Pillows!

When my friend Alison visited this last time, she made me new pillows for my couch. I can sew, but Alison is an expert seamstress and actually enjoys the process of sewing (me - not so much). I don't have a before picture, as we were so excited we started without thinking. Here is the before fabric (if you remember my living room tour here, the pillows matched the trim on my rolling ottomans.

Here are the finished results. We kept the same shape. Don't they look great? I just love how the colors are the same, but they are different animal patterns. Both have turquoise ends which coordinates with my wall color. I took my black slipcover off the loveseat for a summer look and it really needed a spark of somethin', somethin'. These pillows do the trick. Thanks Alison! (pay no attention to the messy coffee table in the last picture. In it I'm actually working on a craft project - burlap coasters with freezer paper stencils! More to come on them soon).

I'm joining up to these fantastic link parties! Come check them out.
