Pop of Pillows

I have been going thru my fabric bin lately and I discovered this material I bought about 3 years ago. I never had the right use for it, nor did I want to disturb the beautiful pattern.
Now that I am adding more color to my home again, I saw it and knew I had to make new pillows for my studio swing.lightly stuffed for a more comfy style. Boy do they add a pop of color to the space.
I just love how they balance out the swing and match perfect to my Junker Jane Rabbit.
It has been fun this week going thru my bin of old colorful fabrics....the surprises that I am making for holiday gifts this year are already being loved by some of the furry friends in the house. ;)
I had to do a test run to see if I was on the right track and I can say with a smile, my kitties are loving what I am making.
Hoping this week allows for more time to sit and sew. I just can't seem to get enough of it right now.
Its funny how we go up and down with our crafting loves, one week it is all glue guns and findings to yarn and crocheting and now on to sewing and quilting fabrics.
I guess this is why my studio stays packed with items....I just never know what I will be in the mood to create with.

Ah, the joy of stashing away fabrics and supplies for another day. Just knowing they are all there is good enough for me.

Adore those colorful pillows...the rabbit looks so happy now.

I LOVE the pillows. And the idea that you have a swing in your studio! I have a stash of fabric too, but nothing as fun as that. :)
