We have really enjoyed these pillows! Perfect to...
The tutorial was easy to follow. The only change I made was adding topstitching to all the seams. I know how hard my kids are on things they can sit on, or throw. So, I wanted a little extra strength. The yellow pillow is made from yellow denim, the green with Joel Dewberry twill. I made my own piping out of a teal fabric to tie them together.
I used the stuffing from the pillows that came with our couch. We never used them, and they ended up stuffed into a closet. Now the older kids love to sit on them to play a game, and everyone wants them if we have a movie night. I think I'll need to make a couple more.
Baby agrees, these pillows are fun!
In case you're wondering, the top is based on indietutes' peasant blouse tutorial. It's actually a muslin that I made, and ended up loving. Rather than using 1/4" elastic, I tried the elastic thread shirring method for the first time. There are five rows of stitches around the neckline, and three around the arms. The fabric is really thin cotton-poly shirting I got for really cheap. It'll be a perfect summertime top.
