Reversible Pillows

I'm sorry that I have been completely M.I.A. lately. School has been a little more work than I planned on, and because it is online the last thing I want to do is be on the computer. I sit in bed at night and think about what a bad blogger I have been. But I LOVE my blog, and I never wanted it to be a chore. With all my online work, being on the computer has felt like work lately. I needed a little break, but I'm back! Through all my laziness of blogging, I have still been busy with some lil' projects! Also.... yesterday was my birthday so we did lots of relaxing and partying!

Because you know I can't get enough throw pillows I decided to sew my own. I headed to a fabric store with no idea what I was going to do, only knowing I wanted some new color on my couch. I picked out a bunch of different fabrics that I loved. I am always attracted to colorful, patterned fabric. I decided to contrast all the colors with some natural burlap.

 I already had some pillows that I bought at TJ Maxx a while back, so I took the inserts out and used them for my two new pillows. I just cut strips of fabric and sewed them together. Easy peasy. I don't really sew, so I just went with the flow on these. If I can do it, anybody can. They're reversible too, so its like FOUR pillows for the work of TWO.

 Here they are above, with my clearance target pillows.
Yay, It feels great to be back!
