What's that you say? You were just wondering how to make the cutest, easiest most perfectest pillow ever?! You are in luck, my friends. Anna from Noodlehead created a tutorial for just such a pillow! When I saw this, I had to make it. And I found this yummy turquoise fabric for it. So, first, here's Anna's pillow:

I love the yellow she used, and how tightly the pillow cover fits. She has great taste! And here's mine...
I love it!! I think I'm going to make it fit a little more snug (snugly? snuggish?) but I'm mostly pleased. Here's a picture of 3 of the new pillow covers I made for my living room. I love the color combo:
The floral one was made from a fat quarter of a vintage sheet that I couldn't bear to part with. I knew that I would use it for something super cute someday and I'm so happy it's on my couch now.
My husband though; not so happy.
He HATES throw pillows.
What is it with men?!!
I see nothing wrong with one hundred throw pillows on my couch, but for some reason, somebody thinks they're annoying and stupid.  Well, men, I bet you're thankful for them when you want one to rest your arm on or to lay on when you lounge on the couch!! :)

Here's some shoppy business, in case you haven't seen them yet. New pillow covers in the shop!

In case you can't tell, I'm a little bit pillow-minded lately.
Today was a long day. I'm gonna go lay my head on one of my new gorgeous pillows.  And dream of making more pillow covers.

Have a pillow good night!

I hear ya on the husbands and throw pillows thing. I gave up ..... I was tired of picking them up off the floor all the time. And not because my children put them there! hehe Those are inspiring though!!
