hodge podge pillows


I am midway through the tweaking of my living room and am loving all the colors but I have to admit I am a bit nervous to see it all come together.

I spent an evening last week sewing up these pretty pillows for the sofa.  The top and bottom ones were made from vintage sheets that I finally found the nerve to cut into.  The others are fabrics I already had in my stash.

I purchased a new bold geometric shade at Target in a teal blue and spray painted the base of the lamp in sunshine yellow.  Bold I know...but I love how it turned out.

Other than this sneak peak at the pillows, I am saving the rest of the room until the walls are painted white.  If the weather holds, that should happen this week.

I better get back to it or I will never get it done!

Have a wonderful weekend...

  15. Patty,

    The colors are so cheerful.

    I cut into many sheets and quilts through the years and I must say...I was always nervous, especially with the quilts. But, I always loved the results.

    Can't wait to see.
