Pillow Covers

Before I launch into sewing my own outfit for challenge no. 28, I have to strengthen my overall sewing skills. I had some throw pillows that didn't really go with the black/white/gray scheme of our upstairs loft, so I decided to make new pillow covers with some great upholstery fabric I found at Mood. The tutorial I used (view it here) called for an envelope back, probably the easiest way to make a pillow cover since there's no need for a zipper or buttons.

Pillows BEFORE:


I am personally a fan of mixing patterns (in this case geometric and floral) within the same color scheme. They turned out pretty well, and now I know how to make a pillow cover for the rest of my life. Loving these challenges.
