Nautical Throw Pillows and a Fresh Look for the Blog

I hired myself to make throw pillows for the beach house. Ha! Sandi bought 2 blue canvas slipcovered sofas from Pottery Barn and the walls are yellow. So I made these nautical flag inspired throw pillows.

(Sorry for the bad picture quality. I had to take these with my phone.)

I put buttons on the back (because, while I have the ability to sew zippers, I don't always sew them on straight), and a little Zesty Nest label (yay for me!).

The tan material is the painter's drop cloth I mentioned before. I have 4 more pillows to make, but they'll be different. I'm using some images from vintage printable (I love that site!) for those!

Also, I have given my blog a little face lift. Not sure what I think yet, but the layout is still the same so you'll find all your favorite links in their usual spots.

Thanks, Cathryn! That's one of my favorite rooms in my house - it's where I keep all my coral!

Awesome job on these pillows!! Love the buttons too. And so true..., vintage printable is a great source!

Thanks, Maya! I ordered some 11 x 17 iron-on transfer paper so I can put big graphics (think crab, sting rays, owl, and a sea turtle) on some larger pillows! I'm so excited about those - and my paper just came in today!

Extras?!?!? I'll have to go get more fabric! But I did have a great time making these...so, maybe!
