I Like Fun Fabric

We desperately needed some new pillows... indoors and out.  I borrowed my mom's sewing machine and had fun in my "spare" time over the summer.  Most of my fabric came from Fabric.com  They have an awesome return policy and great prices.

For the sake of time, I made simple pillows with no chording or fancy corners.  The pillows pictured above are in my keeping room... for now.  I love to change things up, but for now, these work great with the newly painted desk behind the couch.


Stuffing pillows can be costly, so I ripped apart my old pillows and used the stuffing.  It isn't pretty but it was still in good condition; just needed a little fluffing.

Hi ladies.  No, I won't steal your feathers for stuffing pillows.


I made these in early June and they have held up great in full sun and a ton of rain.  I love the selection of indoor/outdoor choices at Fabric.com
I find myself drawn to the bold geometric patterns for outdoors and the softer hues for indoors (well, except for my new dining area curtains).
What kind of patterns catch your eye?

I LOVE all those fabrics!! I have been doing the same thing, repurposing old pillows. Just whacked off the covering of a couple & can't wait to see how pretty they will be in their new clothes...☺
