My floor pillows have a new look! Over the Summer, I dressed our over-sized pillows in Moda’s Salt Air prints. The Salt Air line just screams Summer. With the start of Winter, I thought they were in need of a new look. Last year, I made a quilt with Moda’s French General line and I had some leftover fabric from that project. (My original plan was to use the reds in borders and backing, but I liked the light and bright better.) I had just enough of a solid and a floral pattern to make two pillows. I love the way the pillows coordinate with the quilt!
Floor pillows are SUPER simple to make. I bought extra large pillows at JoAnn and cut squares the same size as the pillow. I added zippers to my pillows so I can easily wash the covers. I sewed the zipper into the fabric first, and then sewed right sides together all around.
Floor pillows are perfect for movie night, fort building, and great for adding a bit of color to a room. My family room has been lacking color since I painted it white, added white drapes, and a few chocolate brown pieces of furniture. A little red for the winter is just what we needed.
