I’ve been wanting to make some throw pillows ever since we bought the big blue couch. The ones that came with it were nice, but just not quite up to snuff – in style and comfort. So this last weekend I buckled down and finally made some throw pillows. My skills with a sewing machine is pretty basic, I’ve made a few things but the owner’s manual has always been a very important part of my sewing experience. What I’m saying is that if I can make two pillows over one weekend, so can anyone.
I fell in love with this pennant fabric from the new fabric collection by Sweetwater, called Reunion. I thought the blue version would be a fun addition to the big blue couch. The basic idea for this project came Rae Gun Ramblings’ post on how to make a quick envelope pillow case. I love how they turned out, and if I have another free weekend I might even make another set of throw pillows. So look out futon, you’re next!
