Pinterest Challenge 2011!

What a great idea!  I am in love with Pinterest, and as many others do I've pinned soooo many fun ideas.  Problem is, I never follow through and actually try to recreate the beautiful things I see.  Well I was so happy to hear that I am not the only one!  Over at one of my fave blogs http://www.younghouselove.com/ the Pinterest Challenge was posted, and I was ready to take it on! 

My husband and I bought this really cool vintage sofa frame from a garage sale a few months ago and kept putting off making the pillows and cushions for it...until this weekend!

Lucky for me, my Mom was in town visiting (she's a sewing pro) so we decided to take on the challenge together. 

Here is my inspiration from Pinterest (via my other fave blog Decor8!):

I really like how the pillows can change, and with some new colours you could have a new look.  So that's what we decided to do.  Here is our lovely sofa frame before we got started:
And here is our during shot...foam cut, pillows purchased...
And finally, the finished product thanks to Mom!  She's so talented and can sew anything :)

And here's another look with some other pillows - I have to keep playing with it to get it just right.

Thanks for inspiring us Pinterest (and thanks for kicking our butts into gear Younghouselove!)
