Hangin’ With My Peeps

It's shameless commerce Tuesday….again!  Where has the summer gone? 


This week I'm featuring three recently listed 16"x16" pillow covers.  I call them my "peeps" pillows, because they remind me of a motley mix of friends and acquaintances –each one unique in appearance and personality.


I just love IKEA of Sweden AB fabrics!  Maybe it's my Scandinavian heritage.  The print used for these pillows features faces artfully rendered with bold black strokes on brown, yellow, peach, pink, blue and green.   I especially like how a single tiny stroke of black created a teardrop – and how some wild brushstrokes conveyed a wild and windswept, defiant look for the yellow dude.


I was able to make three pillow covers from a two-yard cut of this incredible home dec weight cotton fabric, designed by Beckmans College of Design. 


I think these pillow covers would be great conversation starters for any casual get-together in a dorm room, loft or apartment.  They are sturdy enough to survive a pillow fight or a good cry.   For other unique pillow covers, check out the Pillow Covers section of my Etsy shop:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/pasqueflower.


I'm busy packing for my trip to Washington, D.C. and Brooklyn, NY, August 10-15.  I'll be visiting my two youngest kids, who are now young adult professionals.
