I’m alive!

I realize I haven’t posted in a while and I’m so sorry! I recently took on a few new projects and have been pretty busy! (A good problem to have!) I have a bunch of great ideas for posts, so once things slow down a bit I will be back. Until then feel free to check out my Pinterest page… I’m often on there late at night getting a little inspiration fix!

Below are some neutral fall inspired color schemes I was playing around. I love the top floral pattern, the burgundy leather from Kravet and the cinnamon colored fabrics in the bottom photo.

I’ve had this fabric sample leftover from a project for two years. I didn’t want to throw it out because I loved how modern the floral pattern was, but I also didn’t know what to do with it. Lately, I’ve become bored with my solid colored pillows, and thought this was a great way to bring a little pattern to our condo. I haven’t really sewn anything since making Tyler’s Halloween costume, so I was hesitant to get my sewing machine out. It only took breaking two machine needles trying to sew my first hidden zipper, but I’m loving the outcome!

The entire project cost $1.47(!) because I used free fabric samples to make the pillow. The only out of pocket cost was for the zipper I’ve had in my sewing box. Can you believe that?!

(The fabric is Lee Jofa GWF-2743 816)

WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR DESIGN PROJECT!
