 We moved and I finally put my new pillow covers on the couch, and I love them!!! I'm glad I decided to make them before moving, I forgot how long it takes to unpack everything! Geeze! I don't know if we will ever get anything up on the walls, it's so hard to stick a nail in walls you just had painted. I bought some command strips, hopefully that will solve my fear of ruining the walls. 

I used the zipper tutorial in this post to make the dandelion pillow. I decided to do an envelope back with the other pillows. I would have done all zippers but I didn't want to buy anymore. I just made up my own pattern for envelope back pillow covers, but you can check out a tutorial for them at I wanted to be able to remove the covers in case of accident from the kids. 
I bought my material at It is all $15 a yard material I bought on sale. I bought five yards for a little over $30, I think that's pretty good! I finally finished my lamp (in the corner) I love it! I will be posting a tutorial for it soon. 
Have a great day!!
