Bringin' in Some Color

With the new board and batten in our bedroom {almost done, I'll have pictures up tomorrow!} we have A LOT of green in our room. I went to the Bomb-Diggitiest fabric place in town and got me some brown and gold.
Both my mother and my mother-in-law are superb seamstresses. I'm learning, but I don't think I can be considered anywhere close while I'm still using a tape measurer... {I won't even tell you how I don't use pins, rarely iron, or eyeball almost everything...}
The Curtains turned out great. I still am planning on working some magic on the blinds. But I'm lovin' the dark brown, and the subtle pattern of the fabric.
Okay, on to the Anthropologie inspired pillows. I'm not showing a whole ton of "step-by-step" because honestly... I made it up as I went. But I got my ideas from Kojo Designs. I made 2 euro shams & 1 small round pillow.
Fabric for Pillows: $3.00 / yard
Total cost for 3 pillows: $9
Fabric for Curtains: $3.50 / yard
Total cost for 2 panels: $20


  1. Love the curtains! Those pillows are gorgeous! I don't think my sewing skills are quite there yet :)

  2. oh my goodness, I love it! you should totally share a picture of your pillow in our flickr group- :)

  3. Lovin' that large pillow! Great job! I've seen the Kojo Designs one, and it's marked for one of my blanket inspirations, too! Good taste. ;)


  4. Gorgeous pillow! Thank you for sharing!

  5. WONDERFUL JOB ON THE PILLOW! I'm very impressed and it looks great on the bed!

  6. Sommer- I love that you are using a tape measure to sew- you are pretty much my role model. :D Those pillows are amazing!
