The other day I was looking through some of my old blog posts and I was shocked at how absolutely naked my couch looked in my couch post! That photo was back when I had zero pillows on it. Now, however, my couch is nicely crammed with pillows:
I threw my crochet pillows on there right away. They were quickly joined by a fluffy white pillow that I found (for only $20) at Home-Something-or-other. Shortly after they made friends, I pulled out my Amy Butler fabrics, bought some excessively large pillow forms at FabricLand and sewed myself some bright and colourful bookend pillows.
And I completely forgot to post about them! Well, I suppose there is a good reason: Since I made them, I have been constantly lying on them. (I’m even lounging on them as I’m writing this post.) As a result, they’ve become quite wrinkly and full of cat hair. But today I bit the bullet, pulled out the iron, grabbed the lint brush and snapped some pickies!
I made the front of the pillows out of four triangles, and on the back I just sewed two rectangles overlapping to make a flap.
I was a little worried at first that I chose pillow forms that were too big (and I have to admit, they are a little enourmous compared to the size of the couch), but, after much consideration, I don’t think I’d have them any other way. They are wonderfully com-for-ta-buls. Just great for lounging.
Oh, and one of the funny things that Boo likes about this couch is the fact that he can impersonate monorail cat on the arm rests.
