My Apartment

The One Room Challenge: Pillows

January 25, 2012

If you are new to my “One Room Challenge,” read about it here.

I wanted to make pillows for our couch and ottoman to add color to our place. Our apartment is all white for the most part and I needed my pillows to be pops of color. I decided to go shopping at one of my favorite fabric stores in the city, the famous Mood Fabrics. After hours of shopping I picked these four…


Then I went to work…


Even turned pillow making into a girl’s night at my girlfriend Kimber’s place…


And in the end there were four…


If you want to spice up your place a bit, making pillows is an easy way to mix things up. You don’t even need that advanced of sewing skills. If any of you want these pillows I made I have some extras. $30 a pillow. Email me at if you wish to purchase them.

Off to FIT to finalize my schedule. Can’t believe classes start next week.
Have a great day!



Winner for my giveaway will be announced tomorrow. You can still enter by tonight if you haven’t yet.

    You chose gorgeous fabrics! Love the blue houndstooth one! The pillows look awesome and definitely add that pop of color you were looking for! Your corner has such a fresh, modern look to it already, can’t wait to see what else you do!
