My living room seems dark at times so I decided to try to lighten it up with some light colored throw pillows on the couches. I found these placemats in Goodwill a couple of weeks ago and I like the pintucked look.
I decided that I would make these into pillows for the couches.
Here is how they turned out!
I like the contrast of the light pillows against the darker couch.
To make these pillows I cut out some cream colored fabric that I had on hand for the back of the pillows. I did an envelope closure in the back.
Here is a great tutorial for the envelope pillow. The nice thing it that they are easily removed for washing. That is great in a house with kids!
I also made some pillow fillers/ inserts. Here is a picture of the kids helping stuff them! :)
I also bought this topiary at Goodwill that day for about 5.00. I am almost finished reworking it!!
