Pillows, Pillows and More Pillows!!!

One of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is to change the pillows on your sofa , a chair or your bed.  I LOVE to sew pillows and I love to use them everywhere.  And yes, my hubby tells me there are way too many pillows on our bed!!

Today I thought I would share with you photos of pillows I have made.  Some are very "cottagey"- is that a word? Others are a little more traditional.  Lets look at the cottage ones first....... 

These were made with designer fabrics I picked up on sale and vintage linens that in some way were flawed- a hole, a stain, or a tear. I cut them up to use for the pillows. I can see these on a white iron bed with a vintage chenille bedspread and an old quilt!!

Now for the traditional ones........

Wouldn't these look good on a small chair in the living or family room?

Stay tuned for another post coming up next week on some more pillows and a super thrifty way to make them!!!!!!!
