Pillow Crazy

Remember I said I was thinking of making some pillows for my newly slipcovered wingback chairs? (Here) Well, I went a little crazy and....

I made pillows for my wingback chairs, my love seat and my sofa...9 in all.

These are the ones I made for my sofa.

Here's a little closer look. I hand-painted the "C" on the one and crossed-stitched hubby's and my initials on the other. The rest are just simple square pillows. Oh and all the pillows were made from fabrics I already had on hand.

These, with the exception of the "Queen Bee" one, which I found at TJ Max, are the two I made for the love seat.

The little one is made out of white burlap and again hand-painted by me.

And these are the ones that started it all...Also made out of white burlap. The flower, however, is made out of the same fabric I used to make the slipcovers.

I forgot to mention that all these are pillow coverings and I used pillow forms I already had. They were a lot of work, but I am very happy how they all turned out. So what do you think?

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
Wishing you a beautifully creative day.



Hugs and Kisses,

They look beautiful Ana! You did a fine job and so great it was with fabrics you already had. I also reallly like the shoe forms on your table and the cards in them. Have a wonderful weekend!

Ana you did a stupendous job making slipcovers! I am so jealous that you had the courage to do it! I on the other hand would like to attempt it but it just looks like too much work and that overwhelms me. Your whole room is just lovely and your darling pillows just make it all perfect! Good job!~Hugs, Patti

Oh I love them! All are perfect but I prefer the one with the big flower. Is it because it's spring?

All of your pillows are beautiful! I love them all, you outdid yourself.
I especially love the one with the flower on it, I would love to make one like that. I made a book page rose yesterday, I think I need to work on making it a little smaller. I remember that you made some lovely ones.
Have a good weekend,
Love and hugs, Cindy

Office 2010 is totally different than Office 2003. If you have more than one computer change them all to 2010 or keep them all using 2003. If you go with the newer Office 2010, also get a copy of Professor Teaches download Office 2010 by Individual software.
