Dish Towel Pillows

  Like I said the other day, I spent a lot of time at my parents' house Saturday sewing some pretty pillows to make our little apartment a bit more cozy and special looking. My mom was nearby all day for whenever I wailed "Oh nooooo I messed up again! " I hadn't sewed in a long time so I was more than rusty.


I started out with two dishtowels and a cloth napkin I found on clearance at Anthropology, a dishtowel I found at TJ Maxx, and some fabulous green and white leopard print fabric. 

I had some company while I sewed. This is when he was being sweet and not jumping on and chasing the fabric I was sewing. 

Brandons reaction to the new pillows was, "What are those and why are they here?" I like them though. They add lots of color to our tan couch and although he still says they're a little weird, I've definitely caught brandon using them to rest his head on.
