Do you watch as many home decorating shows as I do? I just love seeing the makeovers and getting tips on how to update a room on a budget. Its true when they say one of the easiest ways of adding a pop of color is to bring in pillows! And you know how I love to make pillows. My living room is rather dim, so I took these outside to get better light.
This past weekend I made these two. The larger print pillow is just a simple envelope style pillow cover. I love this print. It's really nicely detailed and has all the essential Halloween motifs - black cat, spider, raven, bat, the words RIP and Boo. Mwa ha ha ha.
This one is a re-designed version of my Halloween pillow from a couple years ago. I cut my cat out in felt and appliqued her onto a woven cotton I found at the quilt shop. Its softer than burlap, but not as tightly woven as muslin or quilting cotton. I like the look of it, but I want to try quilters linen next. My original pillow was in fun prints, but this one feels a little more sophisticated and doesn't scream Halloween.
Do you update pillows with the holidays? I'm thinking a Halloween quilt needs to go on my to-do list!
