A few weeks ago I told y’all on facebook that I ordered a yard of Joel Dewberry Aviary 2 Sparrows – Plum fabric.
The plan was to make 2 pillows for the master bedroom. I love my white comforter, but it needed a little pizzazz. However, after I placed my order I realized that 1 yard wasn’t quite enough fabric for 2 – 18” pillows. So I went to Wal-Mart and bought ¼ yard of purple fabric to add-on.
I sewed the pillow covers using the same method as my other pillows: the 10 Minute Pillow Cover tutorial from Alicia at Thrifty and Chic. I matched up the edges of the fabric in the back, so no one would see the purple from the side.

Then I stuffed the covers with 18” pillow inserts. This is the back view of the stuffed pillow:
And this is the front view:
Yes, I still need a headboard. I have a plan…I just haven’t executed it yet.
