So I just got new furniture that is tan, and with getting rid of the old green funiture I knew we would loose alot of color so I wanted to make new pillows. I was able to make them almost all from stash materials. And while making some I descided to make some for my brother and sister in law who just bought a new house and we bought slipcovers for her mismatched couches. I wanted them to have some cushions since they have none. So here are the ones for me and for them.
Each pillow is quilted before I sewed the backs on because I wanted them to hold up over time. I used a double needle and stitched in the ditch which gave a nice effect. Where the stitching is each side of the seam.

My pillows I wanted to make each pillow different.

My favorite one

Thier pillows

I really like them all and my sister love her pillows. They really bring in lots of colors. Thanks for looking.
