    I need to make some pillows, too. (they are way down on the to do list…it’ll probably be another year or so before I get to it.)

  6. love the bright colors on that pillow.

    Yippie…and it looks super. How many of us have yards of “pillow” fabric accumulating? I have dreams of making big floor pillows some day…that is, when I have enough floor space.

  16. Love it. Seriously. The fabric is GORGEOUS.

    And it is a well deserved pat. It is a lovely pillow.

    oh yeah, i totally know where you’re coming from. super cute pillow.

  19. Lovely pillow! For some reason I’m more intimidated to sew a pillow than a dress/glorified muu muu.

  20. meg says:

    thanks for all your pats too!

    hi meg!
    hope i don’t sound like too much of a nutter here?
    i’ve visited here before but i don’t think i’ve commented. i really like your lovely blog.
    you just commented at my blog and when i clicked your link i had one of those “oh lovely. i know her blog. mmhh how did she land over here at mine?”
    so now i’m here and i swear i’ve seen this pillow before but not here. and recently too. did i dream it? or is it posted somewhere else? i have this vivid recollection of it because i remember thinking how much i love the fabric, the colours.
    i remember finding you via soulemama. she had a link to your tin can cover tutorial. which, btw, i love.
    so i remember how i found you but i know i recently saw this pillow but i’m certain it wasn’t here and now i’m all in a twist – yeah i know i’m weird that way.
    ok and now i’ve gone on and rambled.

  22. […] been quite a while since I made new pillows and I always hate my couch a little less when I do. So I cut into this […]
