butterflies, polka dots and ruffles- oh my!

We have had the same pillows on our couch for a few years now and I was needing a change. I am not usually a butterfly kind of girl but when I saw Canyon Butterfly by Alexander Henry I decided maybe I will be a butterfly kinda girl. The orange polka dot pillow cover came from Target (only $4!!).

We also hung curtains recently (it's about time, we have lived in this house for almost 5 years!!)


On the other side of the room we have my most recent labor of love:

I saw this pillow on the Dear CJane blog and it has been floating around in my head for awhile. I was glad I chose to make it a small pillow it took a ton of circles to cover the whole thing. I also spent a lot more time then I usually do when making pillow covers. I do love it though, so it was worth it.

It looks fabulous...all of it!

I love the pillow you made with all the circles.
Can you tell me how you sewed them on. Is it random. Did you use fabric that won't ravel.

I have an e-mail attached to my blogger if you have a second to let me know,
I may try this. I have pillow form I haven't used and I've been waiting for the right inspiration. This pillow looks like a lot of fun.

so this is what occupied your time last night instead of our crafty Valentine's plans. They look lovely. And I love that we both have butterflies on our couch this winter. Bring on spring!

Love them all! Love the burst of orange color. And, in the wide shot I did not see butterflies at all. I saw the white space only. I was wondering what you were talking about until I scrolled down to the close-up.

Love the pillows!

Wow, love the pillow! Great job. Love the Target deal. There's nothing like the high that comes from getting something awesome at a great price! (Or watching it get marked down, and marked down... and scoring it really low.) ;)

Oh Erin I really like your navy circle pillow! It's so pretty. And I like the combo of your butterfly and dot pillows grouped together. I wouldn't have thought you to be a butterfly gal either but I actually think the butterfly fabric is pretty tasteful and nice.

Steph said...

I love it all, but the navy circles pillow is my favorite. Well done!

Shanda said...

I love that pillow! It is so cute! Well all of them are, but esp the blue rufflys!

Jennifer said...

They're all so pretty but the navy one is my favorite! I am inspired to get my couch pillows "in order"

Anonymous said...

I'd love to copy that pillow...could you tell us how you made it or what type of fabric you used?

Centsational Girl said...

Oh, this is LOVELY! I am dying to make a ruffled pillow this spring. Consider me inspired !
