Coordinated Throw Pillows

The next item to check off my sewing list for the week was decorative throw pillows to go on the daybed in Reese’s nursery.

It’s fun to see an idea go from my mind to a bunch of little images (like above) and finally end up with a complete product. It’s even more fun when it turns out like I hoped it would!

Early on in this nursery planning process I fell in love with Moda’s Vintage Modern line. I ordered several pieces in half yard and fat quarter increments from Poppy Seed Fabrics. The pillow forms were all free because I reused decorative pillows from the daybed before.

I had fun looking around on Pinterest finding inspiration for pillows to make and love what I ended up with.

I think I need to make one more pillow, and then plan on dying the shams of the pillows behind to match the quilt. I just couldn’t justify paying $18/sham back when I bought the quilt, and now I can’t find anything that matches. So yay for cheap shams at Walmart and fabric dye!

I also made one more pillow for my glider rocker. I love how great all the fabrics look together!
