Floor pillows for my living room

So, this week I've devoted to sewing.  I've been collecting fabric for various home decor projects for probably about a year.  It's time I do something with it all.

I originally bought this lime green fabric to go in my lime colored bedroom (we decided on chocolate and blue and I LOVE it).  So, this fabric ended up with no purpose.  I also decided to change our bedspread and the one we got rid of had euro shams, so, of course, I bought the euro pillow forms for them.  Those pillow forms are expensive, so I thought I'd re-purpose everything in the form of floor pillows.  When I explained what I wanted to make to my hubby, his response was, "what for?"  Um... so I don't feel like I wasted any money, thanks.

Anyway, I'm also bringing dark blue into the living room, so I added blue piping to the edge of the pillow covers (I made 2) and closed them,envelope style with a big blue button.  I love how they turned out and so do the kids! 

Other projects started so far this week include 4 sets of curtain panels, 2 pillows for my bedroom and one blanket for my bedroom (finished).  I've got a ways to go, but when I'm done, hopefully all the fabric will be turned into something lovely for my home.
