Mom’s been staying at my house for a week…tomorrow I take her back home. It has been great and I always love it when she comes to my house. She had a few small projects for me to do while she was here.
It’s funny though, she didn’t even know this was one of those projects. She has recently painted and had some work done in her home and she was telling me about it. She talked about how she wanted to add some color to her living room. So, we took a stroll through the Hobby Lobby fabric section…I suggested pillows to brighten up the room as they are inexpensive and easy to change around if you decide you don’t like the color combo.
Her couch is dark brown leather and she has pale green walls. So this is what I came up with! We have two red chevron pillows in different shapes/sizes, one giraffe print and a bright large floral print.
I love the prints together and think they will look as great on her couch as they do on mine. Hmmm, maybe, just maybe I should keep them! I have my own super simple way to make pillows (no zippers, easy insertion and removal of the pillows, just two seams) and four of these took 1 hour to make. I’m working on a tutorial for my technique to share too.
I might be linking to some/all of these great parties!
