Rain Rain Go Away

I don't know about you all but we got a crazy amount of rain yesterday.  This makes for THREE rainy Saturdays in a row-- ugh! what gives?!?  I decided as long as I was going to spend a majority of the day in my house I might as well get something yesterday I made a ton of pillow for our new Bentley Sectional.  He is a pretty big brown boy so I wanted some pillows that would brighten him up.  Here he is as a reminder

I headed off to IKEA a few weeks ago and bought these fabrics.  The yellow one was on clearance for $2.99/yard-- cant beat that with a stick:-) The green one was full price- $9.99/yard but I think green and white stripes is JUST what our basement needs!  The red one was also on clearance so I picked it up but I'm not sure where it will go or what I will do with it. Oddly enough, I am not really a fan of red, but for $2.99/yard how can you say no?

Then yesterday I got out my sewing machine and went to work!  Here are 3 of the 7 pillows that I made.  I think these bright colors will make our new sectional look like a happy fellow. I love that I can turn the pillows either way for horizontal or vertical stripes. 

I need to find another pattern to tie these together and bring in a little more color but I haven't found "the one" yet.  Let me know if you have any ideas!

Off to play softball tonight-- wish me luck-- I am TERRIBLE!!
