Room Makeover

My friend found some pillows she loved at
that matched her newly made over room, but didn't want to spend $15 a piece on them.
So, I decided that if I could find the right material, we could make them. And we did!

They are a little crooked because we had to sew them by hand (no sewing maching), but they turned out pretty good. We couldn't find pink ribbon we liked, so we used black, which we both liked better.

To make them, we just used half a yard of silky fabric and a spool of ribbon that we found in the craft section at Wal-Mart. The edges were already sewn in so they were smooth. I think it's for decorating. It ended up costing about $6 for both of the pillows.

We also made some candles to match. We used some rub-ons to make the scroll pattern.
