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…)

Horse-ies…

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!)

**(sorry all the pics are from my iphone… so they might be a little grainy!)
