I really like your awesome work. You have done amazing pillow covers. I really appreciate your work. I really like this types of hand made items.

You have made such a perfect pillows. I do machine embroidery and i just made at my home. I appreciated for your work. It very interesting idea.

Really like these pillows. So elegant and classy, yet still cosy and in keeping with the sofa, Well done :)

Thanx to sharing this notes.It really informative for us.It very interasting idea.

Love this tutorial. Your posts all always so high quality. Your work is equally!


Soo Elegant! Not sure if I like the front or the backs better!

Nice work on those pillows and they achieve just what you were after: a fresh new look without spending a fortune. Nice tutorial, as usual. Thanks.

I found your blog through blogging for bliss and the timing is great because I just moved into a new apt, and have my sisters old couch that needs some touch ups, so this post was inspiring. Your pillows turned out beautiful.

Beautiful Lisa! I love your pretty colors -- and of course, it's always fun to see the clever ways you use you machine embroidery.

I just had an estimate for a valance for our kitchen. One valance -- 150" long. $2500. After the smelling salt revival, I decided I'll be making my own. It might not be as professional, but for that price, it will be fine! Good luck with your window treatment shopping!

Love the "new pillows". I am working on a new project in my sun room and am making pillows for that right now. Love how you added the embroidery to the backs, a special little touch that takes them from better than "ordinary" to "absolutly fabulous"!

WOW! Your pillows turned out great! I love how you added different machine embroidery designs to each of the backs of the pillows. Great idea! I do machine embroidery and I just LOVE it!! While I tend to go with darker more reddish colors in my house I really do like your color choices also. Very elegant.

Thanks for this post Lisa. I've had fabric and trim for some towels and pillows but the pillows were an issue for me. I wanted to create the overlap on my pillows but was unsure of how to accomplish this neatly and I really didn't want to purchase a pattern just for a pillow. Your post is right on time:) And your pillows are lovely as usual.
