Pinterest Challenge: Summer Edition

Ok, so if you haven't been on pinterest, you have no idea how much awesomness you are missing.  (If you'd like to find out, let me know and I'll send you an invite)  Pinterest is the social media version of keeping magazine clippings of inspirations in a binder.  It's inspired me to do a couple of things around the house and hopefully will inspire many more.  Sherry of Young House Love and a couple other DIY bloggers have laid down the challenge to not just let pinterest be eye candy, but to get up and do something.  Here is my response to the pinterest challenge:

For my pinspiration, I chose this lovely pillow cover tutorial:

It's simple, clean, and held together entirely by its knot (and maybe one straight pin).  Oh, and the perfect way to start dealing with my pillow situation in the livingroom (I chose my GCC pillow first):

I had just enough fabric left over from my settee ...

... and voila!

One less ugly pillow.  Watch out, cookie monster, you're next!


  1. Aw, yay! I was hoping someone I knew would "take the challenge!" ha!
