These are the pillows I made for my sitting room.  One is a simple brown and cream toile, and the other is blue satin with a doilie and cameo button for accents.  It was my first time making pillows and I will say that sewing satin is no fun, but adding cording was a lot easier than I expected!  The only problem is that the satin pillow slips everywhere, it won't stay upright on the couch!

I think I have become addicted to quilting.

I agree that satin stinks when you are sewing it, but it turns out beautiful as you show!  Love the pillows.

Very nice pillows!  They look quite professional.  Maybe making the back of the pillow in something non-slippery would help for the satin one?  Of course, then it wouldn't have an all over posh look, but at least it would behave.  Well done!   Grin

I feel your pain about the satin slipping I made covers out of it for my couch pillows and they are the bane of my existence. but they sure are purty!

They're both lovely, and I'm getting a great Victorian vibe. You could make the back of the satin pillow (or the next) out of a nice blue velvet, like the kind you might find in the upholstery section of a fabric store.
