Pillows for Sister

My sister is a no-frills kind of girl. But then she bought this fabulous purple quilt at Target. Before I made her the pillows above for Christmas, her bed was just a tad on the boring side even though that color purple is wonderful. I decided it needed some decorative pillows to go behind the pillows that came with the quilt and a sweet flower pillow to top it all off. 

Yes, I gave these to her at Christmas, and yes, it has taken me this long to get some pictures of them. Yay for getting to visit her this weekend!
 For these pillows, I used a home-decor fabric I found at Jo Ann's right before Christmas for 50% off. It was perfect for the look I was going for. I made these just like Jen from Tatertots and Jello explains in this post, adding 4 inches to how big I made the pillow because I wanted it to have a border. I used a soft twill fabric for the back of them and made it with an envelope closure.
 I used this Petal Pillow tutorial at Cluck Cluck Sew to make this pillow. It was only the second pillow I'd ever made! Not too, bad!

 The color of the purple felt flower is a little loud next to the soft purple quilt, but I didn't have the quilt with me when I made it so I was guessing on how it would work, and Maggie says she likes it so yay.
I might need to make me another one like this for my bedroom. So sweet.
It'd be cute if I added some more pillows (maybe a couple ruffley ones like these?), but I have a feeling that might be cuteness overload for Maggs.... Maybe if I just go ahead and make them for her she'll have to put them on there.

Hope you have had a great weekend!

I had a problem with my linky party code. I thought it was set up as a thumbnail party but it wasn't. It's all fixed now but can you add your link again? I''m so sorry for the inconvenience. :( xoxo
