Pillow Talk

I'm here to talk.
About pillows.
I've been making some lately.
It all started when I found a handkerchief of an old map of NYC.
My sister-in-law, Lori said it would make a cute pillow.
I agreed.
I used a red Kona cotton for the back side of this one.

It's found a home on my Ikea chair.

For a first attempt, I'm pleased.

My second attempt was outdoor pillows for a bench we bought from the flea market.
Ben restored it a couple of weeks ago.
Lori (again) convinced me that this fabric would look great with the green bench.
I agreed.

The cream one is a textured fabric.
It can't be ironed or the texture will flatten out and lose its... well, texture.
Learned that the hard way.

I should have gotten more pictures of the bench.
It's awesome.
Ben did a great job.

I am wondering if I should make a fourth or just leave that kid out there to equal it out.
