Pillow Parade!

Kari and Kijsa are hosting a wonderful pillow-themed day. Pillows are a great way to add colour and texture to a room. The above photo shows the pillows on our bed - I made the two white ones and the ones with buttons. Pillows are fast and fun to create, like miniature canvases.

Here's a more tailored pillow in the living room. It's a taffeta-type fabric with a sheen to it. The texture of the pintucks save it from being plain and boring. When I make pillows, I usually just make the covers so that I can pop them off and change them as I wish.

I have a chair in my front hallway on which I usually perch a pillow reflecting the seasons. I put away the Valentine-themed one today and pulled out this more spring-like number. Silk and chintz, lace and buttons, ribbon and felt are used in this one.

Don't forget to head on over to the Pillow Parade to check out the posts on Mr. Linky!

    Enjoyed the pillows. I've got a patchy pillow project on my blog.

  9. Your pillows are justt beautiful! I love the pintuck. Did you use a Pfaff? or did you iron and sew? A nina's and vikings do not do pintucks like that. Sitting all pretty. I like to be able to take them off as well. You can change them out, store them, clean them...
