Family Room Fluffing
I was in the mood to do some fluffing in the family room this week. I sewed some simple striped pillows for the couch. Like I said before, I’m a little obsessed with stripes, so that would be why I made them!
I looked for striped fabric but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. So I bought some cheap brown and white cotton fabric and just sewed strips of fabric together. And I’m really happy with how they turned out!
The other white pillows I made from hand towels from Target that I just sewed together. I created a stencil out of heavy paper and used craft paint to paint the number “5” on the pillow.
Pillows are such a fun way to add graphics, texture, and color to a room!
I bought a simple $2.99 white drum shade at Christmas Tree Shoppes to replace a broken shade, and it looked a little bit bare. So I hot glued a vintage fabric measuring tape (bought at a yard sale) to the top and bottom of the shade.
And I bought this orange-y faux-leather ottoman from Goodwill for around $3 and decided to make a slipcover for it.
And I love how it turned out! I used white cotton duck fabric and it was actually really simple to make. The pleats on the bottom were the hardest part. Although it wasn’t really hard – just time-consuming.
I’m planning on making a slipcover for the floral chair this winter. I’m kind of excited but mostly terrified about making it. I’m really not an experienced seamstress, so we’ll see how it turns out!
