PILLOWS, PILLOWS, AND …more PILLOWS

I have been obsessed with pillows for as long as I can remember.
They are FUN,
easiest thing to sew and can add colour and style 
to the most boring bed or sofa.
I make pillows and I buy pillows…lots of pillows!
Recently I found some great fabric on sale so I  bought remnants,
and sample squares that were perfect size for pillows…
Just some of my finds…
Last month I made 24 pillows in one weekend
(one word of advice, if you are making pillows make sure you have all the inserts,
 I am still trying to find inserts for a few of my long pillows)
I love how my bedroom pillows turned out. Now my next project is the headboard…
(I also need a better camera, this one does not do justice to my pillows)
 It is difficult to see in the photo but the these pillows are made with embroidered fabric…I love them!
 This has to be one of my favourites…used a linen fabric and these great fasteners that I found some time ago.
It now takes center stage in the Master bedroom at the Farm house.
This headboard needs a coat of paint…another thing on my ‘to do list’.
Found just the right buttons for this pillow…
Learned to make my own buttons…bought a kit…easy!
This pillow (there are two of them) is made from napkins.
 No sewing required if you can crochet…
lucky for me it’s my Mom’s favourite hobby.
The kids are getting some new pillows too.
Fabric is velvet on one side and ultra suede on the other…
$2 for 6 squares (a steal). My MOM made the crochet flowers…priceless!
 Made several very colourful pillows to bring spring to our
Family Room…love my Owl pillow from West Elm.
 Love these burlap beauties from Salvaged to Sassy,
they are in the living room at the Farm house.
 …I think my daughters must love pillows too.
Have i convinced you yet? Do you have a pillow obsession too?
Thanks for visiting,

Margaret

  • Hello, I am sitting here at my computer looking through your lovely blog. I was just out surfing the web and there you were. I am in love with your Old Lamp, New Lamp post, what a marvelous re-do! They went from quite ugly to incredibly stylish. Your pillows are fantastic and that candy kisses machine you and your daughter put together . . . so cute.
