New Pillows!

OK, so they aren't really new pillows. Just new pillow covers.

The other day I came across this awesome tutorial that Kim over at Everything Etsy shared and just had to give it a try. Here is my version...

I made covers for the two pillows on our couch (please don't pay attention to grubby kid handprints on the couch).

I chose to use a brown background, because, well, I have 2 little boys... and one big boy. Enough said.

I used scraps that I just haven't been able to part with for the leaves. Now I get to look at those gorgeous fabrics all the time!

My new pillows make me so happy! Fall is my absolute favorite season and these are very Fall-ish.

I think these pillows will have a bit of the "worn and weathered" look before long. The edges of my leaves will fray with all of the jumping and flopping the boys do on the couch, not to mention the Wipeout stunts that my 2-year old is perfecting... (You can kind of already see where the boys have smooshed and rumpled up the pillows.) But such is life as a mom of 2 boys. The frayed edges add a special charm!

Oh, and now I'm working on curtains for my kitchen! I'll share those soon, too!
