Preparing for a pillow fight...

...requires pillows! Lots and lot of luxurious pillows that you can just sink back into and that's my kind of pillow fight! We do not have a lot of pillows around here, and those that we do have I often am tossing aside so that I can sit more comfortably on the couch (because hey, as a mama of an active little one, sitting is a small luxury at times!) I have been turning over some ideas for floor pillows for Ella-Bean's room for about a year, but have not been able to commit as of yet. Here are a few great pillow DIY inspirations, though, that may be the kick in the pants I need!

Tissue paper plus a sewing machine equals precise and beautiful pillow images without the fabric chalk!

 A sweet way for your little one to bring a little bit of home along with.

These pillows are beautiful but a little pricey...learn to make your own out of up-cycled sweaters here!

I have some beautiful scarves that I'm thinking of transforming into pillows like these...we shall see!!

I found a pattern (from McCalls, I think) for some "boxy" pillows. Easy, without piping or miter edges - small victory. They are meant to be chair cushions, but I think with the right foam density - they might make great floor pillows. Let's see if we can find a pattern on line...or you can just make it you're prone to do ;)

I've been admiring some charming throw pillows lately too.

Thanks for your comment on the ice bunting--I'd LOVE to see yours! Will you post about it? What a great idea to hang some vertically. I think we'll try that next time too!
