Summer Pillows

Hello Everyone,

I finally finished my summer pillows and I love them!! I took a class last month on how to put cording around pillows and other accessories as well. I love how you can change the style of a room with either cording, tassels and most of all the fabric you select. Thank you Sue!!

I was able to get outside before the rain started here. These are indoor pillows, but, I am loving them on our Adirondack chairs. I might have to go find some outdoor fabric similar to this and make them for these chairs. LOL I also will have to remember to get outdoor cording too.

The colors in this fabric always make me think of Summer. I grew up near the beaches of New York and I have always loved the beachy cottage decorations, the smell of the sea air and listening to the water and sea gulls.

I used two 18" pillow forms, 2 1/4" cording and 5/8 of yard of home dec fabric.




I'm linking up with these parties.


Have a great day!!
