Pillows by Me

I have been having so much fun with pillows this month! Selfishly - none of these babies are for sale - they are all specially made by me - for my home!

I make envelope pillow cases. I seriously made 5 pillows the other night in maybe 30 minutes - awesome I know!  Sorry so blurry - I can't figure out this camera - always blurry without a flash!!

To give the solid pillow some pizazz I braided scraps of fabric & sewed them into a large circle & then sewed them onto the pillow.

For Trudie's dog bed, I created her some very special pillows. I topped off her smaller turquoise pillow with a T for her initial.

For our bed I did the same braided scraps technique to make a solid green pillow have a little something special by adding an R for our last name.


  1. Sooooo CUTE...luv the bright colors! Hope you have a FUN week:)


  2. I have a pillow fetish, it's ridiculous, I mean you should see how many pillows I have. When I go in a home decor store, that's the first section I go to....PILLOWS! I think it's a great inexpensive way (well sometimes, depending on the store...LOL) to change up a room in an instant. I don't sew so I can't make all the pretties like you have.


  3. Well, little miss crafty...those are so cute! I really like that bradied rosette! What a great idea!

    I went and looked and chandis today. WOAH NELLY! I freaked out. I should get a posting up tomorrow with a few pics.


  4. just got caught up on several of your posts - love the table you painted, and that island you have is freakin' great!!! i love. what else? i make pillows too but never thought to braid fabric and make a flower - i am burnt out on yoyo flowers so i am going to have to give this a try -- love the story of you and jade - and love all your haircuts because i seriously have had the same boring one since 6th grade!!!
    going to my grandma's tomorrow to measure - sorry i didn't make it there today!
