Living Room Pillows With Piping

About a year ago my husband and I went on a trip to the store to pick out some fabric to use for pillows in our living room. I happened to find piping that matched almost exactly to the fabric we picked out on clearance so I picked up some of that also. Ive veen sewing for about a month now so making square pillows is an easy enough task but adding the piping was a but intimidating. After breaking 4 needles and having to hand see up most of the corners (since i didn't get close enough to the piping) it's still intimidating enough to want to just make easy square pillows for the rest. (Un) fortunately I think the one with the piping actually came out looking fairly good which makes me want to finish the east with the piping. I'll see how long it takes me to finish off the rest of them...

Peace Love Smile Glitter Paper Letters

I finally put some of my scrapbook paper to use to make these letters. They are going to be part of a series of collages I'm working on but I liked how they looked laid out together so I figured I'd take a photo. I made the letter templates myself- freehanded them onto card stock - and they came out pretty good for someone who can't really draw lol.
