MAKE IT! Monday.

Happy Monday to you all! It's snowing here today and I'm loving it. Something about the winter weather makes me smile. Perhaps it is the smell of a wood-burning fire (even though I don't have one), or the smell of home-made cookies, or the big fluffy socks and pj's that you can wear around the house!

I was going through my archived photos of stuff I've made, and came across these pics of pillows from a couple years back. I had such a great time making these pillows for each of my nieces. As you can see I have three different styles.

The picture below are the pillows I made for my niece Cassidy- and I refer to them as "Old Hollywood Glam".

The next photo are pillows I did for my niece Shea and I refer to these as "Boho".

In addition to the two pillows I made for each of them, I also made matching valances as shown in the picture below.

Finally, these are the pillows I made for my niece Andy, and refer to them as "Urban Edge".

I chose to blog about pillows on this "Make It Monday" to inspire others. Pillows are one of the easiest ways to change the look and feel of a room. Additionally, each of the fabrics used in the pillows shown were purchased on clearance. With a little imagination, you can make your own version of an Anthropologie pillow for a fraction of the cost. The most expensive purchase was the bead encrusted ribbon on the Old Hollywood silver pillow, which was $6.00. Other than that each pillow was made for less than $5.00, and I still have fabric left over.
Happy pillow making!
