Choosing the fabrics is one of the best yet frustrating parts of the sewing process to me. Luckily I thought I had some good stacks. This is the first one I pulled together. It is new for me to use black prints but I am really liking them, when used sparingly.
I loved this pillow so I thought I would use Amanda's tutorial to make me one. This pillow is 20"x 20" and I call it my Red Arrow pillow. It really looks great with the 2 pillows that I bought at Target. I just LOVE the flower one soooo much from Target.
Some more black I used. I do have tons of black in my house. Most of my furniture is black so I do love it.
Next up was making a half square triangle pillow using my go! baby cutter to cut them all for me it helped tons! I am just not the skilled when it comes to HST so I was glad to have the go! baby even though it doesn't cut perfectly (alot of times I have to cut strings) but it is better than me doing it.
This one ended up being 19"x 19" which was nice since I stuffed it with my Ikea down pillow form that I got for almost $7 (thanks Erin for telling me about them) which is 20x20.I love the stuffed look of the pillows.
Then I made the little 12"x 12" chevron pillow using Premier Prints home dec fabric. This is my husband and my favorite size pillow along with a larger one to lay on and watch tv on the couch. I also bought the chevron fabric in yellow to make another pillow for the couch but the fabric came with tons of flaws so I am waiting on another shipment of the fabric before I make another one.
All the pillows won't always be on this one couch but for photography reasons it seemed like a great idea. I am loving the way the tv room is coming together with all the fun colors. I am just wanting to make another small pillow once I get it in the mail and maybe one more large pillow so each couch will have 2 or more of the large ones.
