Pillows revealed + cute earrings found!

Sorry it has been so long. It really shouldn't take two weeks to finish sewing 5 pillows! Here's a look at all the pillows I made. If you're wondering what I did with the existing beige pillows that came with my sectional, I actually reused their polyester filling to stuff these pillows. Hooray for recycling (not to mention the added savings by not purchasing extra polyester filling).

I was so inspired by this bow pillow tutorial, I just had to make one for myself in my favorite color pink! I just love how it turned out and the girliness it adds to my sectional!

Green zebra print pillow with ruffles
Blue coral print pillow (I am such a huge fan of the ocean!)

On a side note, I wanted to share with you these handmade porcelain earrings I recently purchased at the Quilt, Craft and Sewing Festival in Pleasanton last week. I fell in love with these cute heart earrings made by Karen Nolke (she had hundreds of color combinations to choose from). I only paid $10 for these three pairs, it's too bad she doesn't have a website to order products from. Wouldn't these make cute and affordable gifts?

I hope you enjoyed this post! I have many more projects in the making. My next project will be creating seat cushions for my dining chairs. Stay tuned for the tutorial. Hope everyone is having a good week! :)
