My bedroom got a bit of an update with some fresh pillows! I sewed up a fun trio featuring the Desert Rose, Golden Canyon, and Stone color stories from our new Zambezi fabric collection.
I opted for a simple and clean look for the set. The two square ones are mirror images of one another with Watering Hole in Stone flanking the sides of the pillows. I thought the symmetry would be nice on a bed where they would sit next to each other, but equally fun if these animals eventually "migrate" over to our couch.
For the finishing touches, I used Thatched in Golden Canyon to make some piping, and for the Giraffe Tribe pillow, a bit of golden tassel fringe I picked up at Joann's. Either of these notions are a great way to give your pillows a polished look.
If you've never tried this technique, head over here to Make it and Love it for a Tutorial! It's for piping, but the concept is the same for either tassels or ball fringe as well.
Here's a peek at the piping as well as the pillow backing. I used the coordinating Cadence in Golden Canyon from our Etched collection for all three pillows, tying them together as a set. And if you're wondering about the textured fabric tucked in there it's the lovely new Manchester Yarn Dye in Taupe from Robert Kaufman. I can see those working their way into many of my upcoming sewing projects!
I'm looking forward resting my head on these lovelies! And if you're wondering about that Flying Geese throw in Zambezi, you'll have to stay tuned t'ill next time! Thank you so much for reading, and sewing along with us! Follow us on Instagram for more behind the seams sewing adventures!
