Pillow Cases

Made some super low-budget pillow cases this weekend, for in my new home. The couch has to be comfy and cosy, right?

I bought the inner pillows at the thrift store, for 1,50 euro's each. The fabrics I used for the covers all have been lying around for over a year or so, now I finally found a good purpose for them.

I've also been crocheting a little doily lately. I attached it to an embroidery hoop (yup, also thrifted) with linen fabric as a soft contrasting background, to make a nice decoration piece for the wall.

I feel so budget friendly, heheh! You don't need much money for decorating, that's for sure. Sewing the pillowcases was fun, maybe I should make some more for in the shop, if anyone would be interested... I have a lot more fabrics without any purpose!

One more pic, and then it's time to go to bed for me. Stupid brain concussion's making me tired ;) Luckily it didn't spoil my joy in crafting!

  1. wow, lovely colours (and great pic's). It's going to look great, I'm sure.

  2. I love the pillows! Making pillow cases is also something on my to do list...

    And how cool is it that you thrifted an embroidery ring! Your appartment will look stunning, I can't wait to see it decorated :)

  3. These pillow cases have a touch of Spring with all those bright colours!

  4. @ Bdette: Thanks!! I totally enjoyed making them, all in one evening :)

    @ Brenda: Heheh, I thrifted the ring..but I made the doily myself. Didn't know what to do with it, I thought it might look nice in that embroidery hoop! My appartment is slowly getting decorated, I already start to feel at home :)

    @ Evelien: I know...I had those fabrics lying around for ages, the patterns are way too big for dolly clothes. But now I could finally use them!
