~new sofa pillows~

Hi there!
I thought I'd show you what I made yesterday.
I have been fascinated lately by anything union jack,
so I decided to jump on the bandwagon
and make a couple pillows for our sofa. I made 2, both Euro sized with cushy down inserts.
I made them out of drop cloth material, a vintage flour sack, and a old table cloth.


Now I just can't decide if I should leave them on the sofa,
or move them into the master bedroom.
I also just ordered one of these from my friend Teresa and I love it!
xoxo

Very cool.....I think you should be undecided and send them to me :) Love the worn and tattered look!

ps - love her towels! I saw that one too :)

I love this softer interpretation of the union jack. Something is really wrong with me cause I want every gorgeous thing that I see LOL.Seriously I need a pillow like that somewhere in my house. BTW are the vintage flour sacks very different than the flour sack towels you can buy now?

they look amazing! and as many times as i've tried to talk my husband into the Ektorp sectional and being turned down because he claims it isn't comfortable... i bet some big cushy pillows would help! :)

love that towel that you ordered too!

Fabulous! You inspire me! I love this trend. I would, however, be inspired to purchase the pillows from your store,if you felt inclined to market them. I'm just saying!

I love everything but I especially adore that Union Jack pillow. So smart to think of making it out of neutrals!
