Today was pillow day for me. And it feels soooo good to finally start using some of the fabric I have been accumulating. One of my favorites is this one with pink and green animal/reptile silhouettes.
It is similar to one I used on an old Lonestar chair that I bought at Restore for $5.00. And, it was my first time using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!
I love both these fabrics and think they would be adorable in a little girl's room. The pattern design is something you would expect more in a boy's room and that is one reason I love it!
Okay, so, back to my pillows. I made two with the first fabric. The 18" x 18" pillow back was made with painter's drop cloth and has a zipper in the back. My 14" square pillow is an envelope pillow using the same fabric on the back. They are different because I am experimenting a bit here. (More to come)
Not the best picture - I will replace it soon.... And put on your shades for the next pillow. I love this fabric - it is so happy cheerful! (For some reason it looks a little "Dr. Seussish" to me - and that is all anything takes to catch my eye) This 18" square pillow is another envelope one.
(FYI - the envelope pillow is my favorite to make. Since I am NOT so great at tutorials, check out this site for instructions. Or, just Google it, as my kids say!) More pillows and lovely fabrics coming soon......
until next time!
