I love the orange with the green.
I had used this orange swirl fabric to create some table runners a couple of years ago. So, I pulled out a strip that was exactly twenty-three inches wide. It was the perfect size to make one side of the covers for my sofa pillows.
I think the orange was just the ticket for perking up the sofa and injecting a bit of fall color into the den.
For the other side of the pillow cover, I went to my old stand-by - blue. Every single room in my house has a bit of blue in it. So, backing these pillow covers with blue seemed to be a natural way to turn. I had a cotton fabric that was in two pieces. It was left from some project long, long years ago. So, I tore the two pieces into strips that would form an envelope back for the orange swirl fabric. I folded the edge under a half-inch. Then, I folded it down a couple of inches to form a hem for the center, envelope edge and stitched. Then, I pinned the back to the orange swirled front - right sides together and stitched them up. I turned them right side out and pressed them. Then, I stitched a knife edge about a quarter-inch from the outside edge of the cover.
A couple of fresh looks and the only cost was a bit of my time. I had all the materials here and they were left from other projects!
