Homemade Pillows

The last few days, the sewing machine and I have spent some quality time together!! Not all good, darn my cheap singer, but alteast I can work it :)

I made some fall pillows. I invested in some great Potterybarn down pillow inserts, and just change the covers. I didn't have any "fallish" pillows, so I went out, got some great fabrics and went to work!

The green fabric is one I already had from a previous project, I added the cute giraffe ribbon, and voila!
The floral fabric is actually NAPKINS from pier 1. They were $2.95 each, and I got two, backed them with brown denim, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! Next is the brown and cream polkadot......I got this fabric at Hobby Lobby! And it was 30% off!! In the back on the other red chair I have an all brown denim pillow, with cute ruffles on it! I love all the cute ruffles that are super trendy right now, so I made myself a cute pillow....but FYI, its not super comfy, therefore; it's found a home on the chair that we don't usually sit in :)

Happy Friday!
