Pretty up your pillows!

Sorry, I have been a little M.I.A. here in blog land lately! 
I started my amazing new job last week, and by the time I got the kids down for bed each night I was just too exhausted to do anything else! But slowly, I am adjusting to my new daily routine, and and finding some time to get back into the craft room! This weekends project was to make some pillow covers for my super boring and non matching couch pillows! 
Pillow covers are so fast and easy to make. All of the ones I am going to show you here are 17 x 17. They can easily be removed and washed as often as needed! 
Here you have blah blah blah, and now.............
Ahhhhmazing!!! So much better!! I had a ton of this fabric on hand, and finally knew what I wanted to make with it! It is a gorgeous Valarie Wells print. I made 5 different covers that all coordinate with each other. 





I knew I wanted flowers and ruffles, and a hint of lace! Had to keep the birds and branches too. I love that they will flow nicely right into spring!

Those are awesome - love them! I especially like that they seem to tell a story and they look like they go together though they're not identical to each other. Nice work!
