currently, i am spending lots of time on fabric.com, going through the many different designer fabrics. my favorites without a doubt are amy butler, heather bailey, and anna maria horner designs. we have a beautiful brown sofa and double chair, and our pillows are looking a bit on the shabby side. so i have been planning on re-covering them but really just can't decide on my fabrics. i want color, and different prints... just gonna take some time to finally make my choice.
in the meantime, i picked up a half yard of some super cute fabric i ran across at hobby lobby, and decided to make a cover just to see how it would look over one of my pillows. turned out nicely and here is how i made it- (super super easy)
*always pre-wash and iron your fabric!
front fabric - 12x16
back fabric (1) - 12x12
back fabric (2) - 12x12
next step is to hem one of the edges on each back piece of fabric. i always double fold so i will never have a frayed edge.
another thing i can't wait for... tomorrow! we are leaving for atlanta to spend the weekend, and for the best part... seeing the jayhawks and BAND OF HORSES on saturday.... i am completely pumped! it is our two year anniversary on the 4th... so this will be an absolute FANTASTIC weekend!
