Hey hey all! Hope you have a fun weekend planned! I have a quick post for you today because I’m off to prepare for my sister’s baby shower tomorrow – can’t wait!
I shared this on Instagram the other day because I was just so excited to get this done. I picked out the fabrics for the window seat pillows a couple of weeks ago:
I definitely wanted something colorful against all the white in the bay window and I LOVE how these all work together!
When it comes to mixing fabrics I usually go for a large print, a stripe or a solid and a smaller print. I find those work well together best – it can be hard to find a good combo!
All three are from Joann’s – the one on the left is an outdoor fabric, the one in the middle is a stripe and they had a few different versions of that. The one on the right is an HGTV fabric, love it!
I used old inserts I had laying around (hence the lumbar pillows) and I like how the different sizes work together: I LOVE IT! Love love love. I know the dark blue especially will fade in the sun, but I’m going to do my best to rotate them often. Lately we rarely see the sun at all anyway. This was taken this morning and the sun is already gone. Boo.
Anyway, if haven’t mentioned it, I love them. I haven’t even sewn them up all the way yet, but they still look good. Who knows if I’ll get to that before the shower but I’m sure no one will notice. (If they do they get a cookie.):
It makes it so much more comfy! I’m still deciding on the window seat cushion fabric – I think I’ll go with a lighter solid so I don’t have to worry about the sun.
I was getting so much done I worked on some new pillows for the family room too, including this blue ikat from Calico Corners:
That one has a whole side that isn’t even sew up yet, gotta get that one done. I had some left over so I railroaded the fabric and did a lumbar pillow for my favorite chair – love!
I have sewn FIFTEEN pillows this week! That’s crazy. Fabric is such an easy way to update a space! There are always great sales at Joann’s and they let you use numerous coupons with each transaction. That is always awesome.
I’m off to clean and pick up supplies for the shower – hoping the sun comes out for that tomorrow! Anything fun planned this weekend? Have a great one and I’ll talk to you next week. :)
