And a little more sewing…

Here’s what I made today, a set of new pillow covers for our sofas.  The old ones were getting pretty grungy, I think I made them about 6 years ago.  These new ones really help freshen up the living room, they’re so fresh and springy!

I’m loving these Amy Butler prints!  I did some quick strip-piecework for the fronts, then used fusible fleece and quilted them for a nice textured effect.  Two of them have a simple envelope style back, and one has a zipper.  I was working with what was on hand.  The covers are totally washable, important in a house full of kids!

    very fresh and cute! I’d love to do something like that, but I’d need to sew myself a new sofa first! (or at least figure out how to do slipcovers without killing myself… I have 27 yards of fabric that were purchased for that purpose, but didn’t get very far!)

    Those are soooo pretty! I love the fabrics you chose and the combination. Just came across your blog, and I think I’m going to stick around for a while! 🙂

    Very pretty! I just used quite a few of those fabrics in a quilt I have been working on!

    Oh my gosh, I love these. I have never been one that *thought* I liked quilted things…but you have turned me around! It really is all about the fabrics. I bought one of your patterns on etsy and decided to check out your blog…I’m so glad I did! I have been BREWING over what fabrics to buy to make new pillows for my couch. It is cream, and I wanted some COLOR. Anyway, this way I can buy several different coordinating fabrics and I don’t have to choose. You have an awesome talent. 🙂 Thank you!!!!
