Did you know how many amazing fabrics Spoonflower has?!

I was blown away & to be honest it took some time for me to make a choice because I

seriously loved so many!

Over the weekend I tackled an easy project using my favorite Ikat Chevron

to makeover a little nook under my stairs.

Yup, you guessed it, I made pillows:).

Pillows are the easiest way to give your home a custom & stylish look

without breaking the bank.

The finished size was 18 x 18.

1. I cut 2- 19″ squares for the fronts.

2. I cut 2-19″ x 24″ for the backs.

I then cut those in half long ways.

  1. Dear Jen, I love how you have incorporated beautiful neutrals in your home and how by
    adding a splash of color a season or holiday is reflected. Your interior colors remind me of
    the colors one sees at the beach. So pretty.

  2. Looks like we had the same idea, girl! I love your tutorial. I’ll have to do that next with the corners on my pillows. Great tip 😉 Sharing & pinning.

  3. Good idea to angle the corners like that. I’ll remember it. Your nook can change with the seasons and that is so fun! I bought one of those beautiful sheep rugs…but my cat destroyed it. Now it is in her bed and every time I walk past her, I think, she really pulled one over on me!

  4. Love the material you chose. Chevron patterns are my favorite. The nook looks beautiful. Love it!!

  5. Absolutely love the pillow fabric. For longest time I thought I didn’t like IKAT patterns but now I look for them purposely,love them. Just took this old dog longer to decide. HL has some nice duck cloth ikat patterns, have you seen them? Love them. The chevron ikat is gorgeous. Great choice to make pillow covers with. You do a wonderful sewing job on everything you do. Would love a table runner in that print you used. I’m always so inspired in what you do, no matter what.
    I got some incredible curtain panels with grommets at T.J. Maxx this week. They’re a light gray with a white pattern on them. Love them. Very different from what I’d usually buy or make. Decided to go for them. Almost didn’t get them but there were only 2 pairs so didn’t want to miss out. Two panels for $24.99. 78 x 84
    I always love to see what you’re doing, I get the itch to fix things up when I see your wonderful projects. Happy Easter

  6. Hi Jen, I found you on Marty’s A Stroll Thru Life last week only to realize that I have many of your pictures already pinned! Love your blog.

  7. I admire anyone who can talk about sewing pillows like that so casually! The smallest and simplest sewing project is a challenge for me, you make it look so easy! I really love the rustic wooden bench (chest?) in your nook. You’ve probably mentioned it before, but I’m a new reader and that was the first thing that caught my eye!

  8. Hi. Love your nook!

    Regarding the pillows using the spoonflower ikat chevron fabric, can you tell me which specific color was used and which choice material you used. Just by eyeballing it, I purchased what I thought was the correct one and it is so dull looking and the fabric doesn’t look as nice as the pics above. Thank you!
