splash of color…

With march madness, weekends in the Steamie House this month have been filled with the sights & sounds of many a college basketball game.   What better indoor accompaniment to watching endless hours of TV?  crafting!  YAY!  (Yes, I’m aware I’m a little extra excited about any of our crafty projects around the house… but I like to make things!)

A quick visit to my fav discount fabric store- Jenny’s Fabrics in Fountain Valley- and I returned home with a bundle of fabrics.  Some were for a top secret sewing project (to be revealed later) and others- for new very bright, bold & fabulous pillows for our couch!

Here’s a few fabrics I snapped pics of (taken to text to Mr. Steamie for input, of course!).  All these patterns are Alexander Henry Fabrics (I think…)


Sort of over sized paisley…

And the winner (winning!)- with a great mix of print colors, and some more organic patterns (which I think tie in well with the curtains)

So after deconstructing the existing pillows, washing the fabric, measuring, cutting, ironing, sewing AND stuffing..

Ta da!

here’s a pic of them all on the couch!  (again- now we just need art on the walls above the couch!)
