I bought new fabric to make pillows for the living room. Most of the room is tans/browns/creams with black furniture, but I have those green vases I bought for the fireplace and I wanted to bring in more of that green color to the room. And... I was sick of the red and orange pillows that we've had forever.
So... there were two fabrics I was torn between so I bought a half yard of each... enough to make two pillows (with a cream backing). One is a green paisley and it has a tint of the blueish color that is in the foyer. The other is just a green and cream pattern.
