This is the way my table runner should look (minus the wrinkles of course) not like this (click here). This runner was a snap to make. I just cut it to size and hemmed up the sides. Here are a couple of pictures of new pillow covers I made with the leftover material from the runner. They were quick and easy to make too. I followed the tutorial I found on Rae Gun Ramblings. The very talented Marissa made the cutest pillows. Her tutorial was well written and easy to follow. It took me a bit more than ten minutes to whip these out but I will make all my pillow covers this way in the future. Thanks Marissa!
My pillows are pretty wrinkly too. They get a lot of usage which is why I made them, but I would like them to stay nice. Guess I can’t have my cake and eat it too. Here is a picture of the whole couch.
It looks more summery in the living room now. It also looks more casual with the ticking. Do you notice something a little different than the ottoman I reupholstered in the lower right hand? My husband is working on a project for me. Sorry, this is all I’m going to reveal for now. I know, I know, I’m a meanie (just ask my kids).
