I made new living room Pillows

So a few weeks back my older sister and I snuck into my parents house while they were vacationing in Hawaii. (sorry Megan, and sorry Mom for that matter). We decided to have a last minute craft weekend. I made these pillows. We didn't only craft, we went out to eat and saw a triple feature! My ideal weekend!!!

Anyhow, I was hating these old pillows here, and I have wanted to spruce up the living room without alot of time or money spent. Luckily I have neutral main furniture so I can switch things out every couple years. I still liked the window treatments so I wanted to match with that. This was a mitered pillow. I just google searched how to mitered pillow and found tons of links. I put zippers into these also.
The large pillows are really simple. No trim or anything. I fell in LOVE with the fabric so I thought that was enough. I think I wish a little that I put of a ruffle or pom poms. But I knew if I complicated it to much I wouldn't get them done for months. Check out the dresser and hutch here. It matches nicely. I will show pics of the whole room once I get the coffee table refinished.

I LOVE them! And I am so with you...we have a hard time doing something simple like not adding a ruffle or trim, but I definitely think it looks great as it. Love the stripey pillows too.
