I Thought This Was an Art Blog
Well it is an art blog,
And to me, This is functional art.
If you know me, you know I don't like wasting anything.
I had some pillows that were not exactly my style so I decided to make them my style.
My living room is pretty rustic and the pillow were contemporary.
I'm not contemporary.
I also had a lot of blue jeans my husband had worn out.
Can you see what's going to happen here.
Like any woman who sews, I have lots of fabric.\
I can't seem to throw any of it away.
So I decided I would take the blue jean pants and make the backs of the pillows,
And take scraps of the curtains I made in the living room and
other projects and make the fronts.
So here is my pillow art project for today.
They're all different patterns and designs.
That's what I liked about making them.
My curtains are that red and blue plaid you see on each pillow.
I made pillow forms out of scrap muslin I had and took the stuffing out of the contemporary pillows and stuffed the pillow forms with it.
I cut and patched the blue jeans leaving on the hammer straps and
using the pockets to hold remote controls.
I put in zippers to get the pillow forms in an out easier for washing.
I love how these pillows brighten up my living room and make it
look so homey and cozy.
And a little on the artsy side too.
