nursery: pillows

the countdown to d day is officially one month (minus one day). one month. eeep. so exciting, yet so terrifying. but mainly exciting.

my self imposed deadline for getting the nursery to-dos done is 2 weeks before d-day, and i’ve been making some progress. most recently: pillows.


i added the pillows to the expedit bookcase so it can double as a bench (some day maybe i’ll add a cushion).




i used my easy envelope pillow method for both, but added piping to one. this was my first time ever adding piping, and i even made the piping myself, another first. i have to say, it really wasn’t difficult at all. sure, it added some time on to the project, but i still got it done in an afternoon. i may be a little obsessed with piping now – look out.


the whale matches a poster i framed, and the striped fabric is leftover from the crib skirt. (for the whale i used the same applique method as the burp cloths i made, using a turquoise felt.) to tie the two pillows together i used the same gray wool fabric for piped pillow and the back side of the striped whale pillow.

i have a third pillow planned, but if these two are all i manage, i will still be happy. i can’t lie, i may sit in the glider and just look at my pillows. they make me happy. (yes, i know i have issues).

  1. Looking great Tina! I may be taking a tutorial from you for our sofa pillows. Is there any way you can take some full shots of the nursery so I can see the whole thing. I am anxious to see how awesome it looks πŸ™‚

  2. Love the pillows!!! Finding pillows to match a room is not an easy task. Making them may be the way to go (especially for people with talent and vision)!
