D.I.Y. Decorative Pillows

Hello Loves! I wanted to share with you all my most recent D.I.Y. project. I decided to make decorative pillows for my living room area a few weeks ago out of some recycled leather that my mother had given to me. I have been talking about making these for about a year now and I finally got around to actually making it happen.

Pillows are one of the easiest things that you can make when sewing. The items used were recycled leather, a sewing machine, 6 decorative buttons, and stuffing.

 I decided that I wanted the pillows to be reversible. One side being a solid color and the other a combination of colors. 

I completed this project in about two days, taking my time. I actually ran out of stuffing and had to run to the store to get more. I can honestly say that I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. I really feel like it made the apartment feel more “homey”!
Maybe its just me but I feel an individuals place of residence should have some personally. I am glad that I got around to completing what I have been waiting to do for a while now!

What have you accomplished lately?
