Family Room Fluffing

September 16, 2011 0 Comments

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!

Have a great weekend friends!!
