Look at me go! This is the second pillow cover I’ve finished in as many days. And this project wasn’t even on The List. (Perhaps that is not such a good thing and I really should be tackling the item that are on The List.) Now the question is, can I be satisfied with two pillow covers, or now that I’ve begun will I have to continue and make two more for the remaining pillows that are “too match-y” against the couch.
For this one, I used a pile of half square triangles to make a chevron pattern in that green-blue-red color scheme of my living room (that I’m not really in love with, as I mentioned earlier).
The back has a line of the same fabrics to give it a little extra interest.
I like this one much better than the first. And even better news: I even like that first one a little more now that it has a friend. Perhaps I shouldn’t have gone with such a dark background the first time ’round and I’m happier now that it’s countered by this lighter color choice.
Oh, and in case you’re interested, here’s a zoomed out photo so you can see that rug that dictates my color choices in this room. That rug I don’t love, yet don’t yet hate enough to bother to replace it and repaint the room.
I’m likely just overthinking the whole thing, as I’ve been known to do. My 4-year-old loves both the new pillow covers and is beyond excited for brand new pillows. She wanted to take them both to quiet time with her.
