Today I’;m participating in a very fun Blog Series presented by Kristen Duke at Capturing Joy. ?It’;s a series all dedicated to decorating with pictures. ?If you’;ve read this blog for a while you know that I love pictures! I love to scrapbook, display photos around my house and even sew with them.

There are many fabulous giveaways going on at Capturing Joy,?in association with this series. Make sure you stop by and check out the other projects and enter a giveaway.

In the spirit of Valentine’;s day today I thought that for my pictures projectfloral pillow cases, I would make a fun throw pillow with photos of some of the people I love most in the world.

Would you like to make a pillow too? Here’;s how you can do it.

You’;ll need:

Print your photos 3”; x 3”; onto your sheet of printable fabric. You’;re going to need some sort of photo editing program to do this. I used photoshop but I know that in iPhoto you can print custom photo sizes all on one piece of paper.

Using a ruler so that you can see where you are cutting, cut the photos out leaving a 1/4”; border of white around each photo.

Mark the centers of the 10”; x 10”; piece of fabric by pressing the fabric in fourths. This will give you a visual grid for laying out your photos.

Press the 3 photos and your heart onto the pillow. ?Stitch around the edge of all items.

Sew the 2, ?2 1/2”; x 10”; strips of fabric to the top and bottom of the square with a 1/4”; seam. Press seams.

Sew the 2, 2 1/2”; x 14”; strips of fabric to the other two sides of the square. Press

Sew piping to pillow front, if you need to know how to do this you can read my tutorial all about piping here.

Sew pillow front to back leaving a 6”; opening to turn pillow right side out. ?Turn right side out, insert pillow form and hand stitch opening closed.

Hello gorgeous!

This morning I am thinking that all things fall sound pretty good. We started several projects this weekend and if you haven’t already started your own, don’t forget to look at my 15 Favorite 1 Hour or Less Fall Projects! In between fall project planning this weekend, we updated our kitchen island pendants– I couldn’t wait to show you!

Mink is actually a dark shade of brown, almost black in colour and really gives a warm atmosphere when contrasted against lighter colours. As this is indeed quite a bold colour, you must try to ensure that you don’t over-do it. Instead, use mink as a way to compliment and break up large plain walls or as the base colour for a room. If you are considering redecorating your living room, the first thing you need to look at are the main and most prominent pieces of furniture; this may be your three piece suite.
