I received! curiousfae and I discussed sending two pillow covers because I wanted to make her a simple little easy pillow from her pinterest as well as a slightly larger effort pillow not exactly based on her pinterest but on her personality. The two she sent me are amazing and so very me!

Here is everything she sent:


a close up of the first pillow - patchwork, rag style so soft and comforting as well as lovely


The second pillow - appliqued stars, also rag style, beautifully coordinating with the first pillow


I love them - Thank you curiousfae!

I received 2 pillows from Kiurious today that match my teal living room wall. Thank you! They are already on the couch.

The rag pillows are very cute and homey! I'm so glad you like the teal pillows and that they match! I was thinking red at first, but that teal just called to me  Wink

I rec'd these awesome pillows from averia today!
First, I told her that since these would be going on the couch in my craft room that they did not necessarily have to match any particular color or style. That said  both colors that she picked are two of my faves and not too mention the combination of the coral and the blue is one of my favorite color combos. She nailed this! The style of both are so fun too. My craft room is my favorite place to be and having whimsical, thoughtful and pretty things around me make it that way.

I wanted to take pictures and post right away so I didn't get a chance to iron them or put a form in them. Nevertheless, they STILL look fab.
Love this deep blue and bandanna patterns are a favorite of mine.


And this bright coral is so prettyl. Add to that the blue stitching of the creatures on their adventure and man, this pillow rocks! The sentiment is perfect and the tiny creatures make me smile. Aren't they sweet?

up close-
I can tell that she took a lot of time and thought into her work. So lovely!


Thanks again Laura! So much appreciated.

p.s. And they are zippered! What?! So dang cool.

Recieved! It's my favorite color, red, and I love how it looks with my black chair. Sorry for the poor photography, but it's really pretty. Thank you!

Oh, the teal pillow woven effect is Canadian Smocking. You draw a grid on the fabric and hand sew a pattern in the grid to give it the effect! Not for the faint of heart though, it was my first time trying the technique and did quite a lot of ripping out stitches.
