Pillows And More Pillows

First I had to have some milk and cookies, because everything goes better after that. An oatmeal chocolate chip cookie kind of helps when you're in a slump.Diving in to finishing pillows for my window seat. I hate the part where you have to sew it closed. Yuck!
I tore up a chenille bedspread to make my window seat cover, and am using vintage chenille for some of the small pillows. Also used some vintage linens. I love pom pom fringe!
Here are some more pillows I've made and added to the shop. They are all made from vintage fabric or quilt squares. I think they look nice together.

I hope you make some time for a cold glass of milk and cookies this week. Have a wonderful day!


  1. Beautiful pillows!! I need to make some new ones for my couch!! It is long overdue!! Love the vintage linens!! Have a great night!! xo Heather

  2. I found a chenille spread years ago similar to this and I savor it. Using it on pillows and such is a favorite thing. Your pillows look divine. I can only imagine how wonderful the cookies must taste...smiles...Renee

  3. I have one chenille pillow. The girls have claimed it in their treehouse. Your pillows are just lovely. Those cookies look yummy. I'm thinking cookies for breakfast this morning.

  4. Your pillows are gorgeous Leslie, and each one has it's very own personality! I also hate the part where you sew a pillow shut. It just never looks very good when I do it!

  5. Hi Leslie!

    Warm chocolate chip cookies are my favorite thing in the world and I do believe they are life savers. :)

    You're so talented, your pillows are darling! Can't wait to see your window seat and wishing you much success with them in your Etsy shop.

    Happy weekend!

  6. You're "SEW" talented! You really inspire me! The pillows are just adorable. I hope you're having a great weekend! :)

  7. I agree with Erica. You are "SEW" talented. The pillows are just wonderful.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Your pillows are absolutely charming. Just the inspiration I need to attempt a beginner's sewing project. Your embroidered pillow gives me such a smile. Sweet as can be! Wishing you a lovely Mother's Day! Elizabeth
