Home Is Where My Story Begins

Super Simple Floor Pillows

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.  

Happy sewing!

    Have you ever tried to use the pillow forms from IKEA? Always a good bargain and reasonably priced. Better than JoAnns with a coupon.
