So with the new curtains in our living room, a couple of the pillows needed a facelift. The canvas pillows didn’t look out of place when the curtains were linen, but the new faux silk ones kind of dress up the place.
I found a tablecloth on clearance that is the exact same color as the curtains, and I love the modern design. I instantly thought of pillow shams for my poor casual pillows.
I started out making just a plain pillow cover, but then discovered that my pillows were smaller than I thought. I was kind of happy about that, though, when I realized I could just add another seam and easily create a border detail that I wouldn’t have otherwise put in.
They look right at home on the couch, don’t you think?
