Zippered Throw Pillows

Since my move, I have had throw pillows on my to-do list.  This recent trip to the L.A. Fabric district was the perfect time to buy some home-dec fabric.
I found this great Anna Maria Horner print at Michael Levine’s Home Dec Fabric store, along with three other amazing geometric patterned fabrics that are on my sewing table right now.  They are all available in their online store-
The Anna Maria Horner fabric (pictured) is great for decorating on a budget.  It is a medium weight fabric- heavier than quilting cotton but not as thick as most home-dec fabrics.  The price? Can’t be beat for less than $6.00 a yard!
The pillows I made added just the right touch to my new formal living room that I have gradually been working on.  It took a while to get everything together, but finally I am satisfied with the room.

The zippered throw pillows came together so quickly and easily, thanks to this fabulous tutorial by Prudent Baby.

Couldn’t have finished them without my local JoAnn Fabric Store– ran over there yesterday to pick up the zippers.  Can’t really sew much without JoAnn.  🙂

Before I run off to finish the rest of those throw pillows- I want to leave you with the best giveaway ever:
