I have been wanting to make new pillow for the couch for a long time and I finally got around to it yesterday. I used some upolstery fabric scraps that my Dad brought me after picking them up from a craigslist posting from a store who was cleaning them out to make room for new. 

Here is the before picture. These pillows came from a yard sale and I bought them with the intentions to use the pillow forms but they stayed on the couch for way longer than I wanted! 


 Here is the after! How cute are they? I am so pleased with how they turned out. I used this tutorial for the round pillows and I made the one in the middle by just cutting random strips and sewing them together.

 Here is the back of the pillow in the middle. It is reversible! The round ones have the same backing.

 Once I made those pillows, I had to made some new covers for the loveseat pillows! They needed to match! Here is the before...
 And here is the after! These are made with 16 4" squares and a 1 1/2" border. They are removable.

They make you want to just sit on the couch all day with them and tell them how much you love them!

  2. Hi Brittany,
