We have lots of pillows in our home and I have sewn the covers for almost all of them.
I love seeing pillows in home decor shops and cataglogs like Pottery Barn, but usually those prices just don't work with our budget. So I copy cat and sew my own. I'm still looking to find an affordable authentic grain sack but this faux one I painted is easy to throw in the wash. The pleated one beside it is made from the same heavy weight muslin.
This one has a torn edge ruffle and was made with drop cloth fabric, and like most pillows I sew has an envelope back.
The muslin patch with crocheted trims and buttons on this one covers a Union Jack transfer that started to peel off. I scraped off the rest of the transfer and stitched the patch on the white denim body.
Using scraps of denim jeans, leftover white denim from a slipcover and heavy muslin I sewed these 'quilt' inspired pillows. The one above has added crocheted trims...
A simple two sided toile pillow with drop cloth edging.
I also use outdoor fabric to make pillows for our front porch and backyard patio, and need to make new ones this year. I also want to find a fun and modern turquoise fabric for more pillows and to add a punch of colour.
Now that I have shared some of the pillows I have made for our home, I'm going to settle on the family room couch (above photo) and prop myself up with some comfy pillows. After I pick them up off the floor where they often land, of course ;) Then I'm going to check out all the PILLOWPALOOZA link party fun at Thistlewood Farm.
