Book & Crafts #5: Blue Birthday Pillows

Welcome to Books & Crafts, a craft circle composed of book bloggers, a sporadic meme where we share our other creative pursuits aside from reading and blogging. Everyone is welcome to join, just add your tag/label links below and you’re good to go!

It was one of my coworker’s birthday today so I made her throw pillows. I know she loves the color blue and another coworker and I tried to trick her into telling us what kind of designs she likes but that was a failure. Nothing she likes/collects translated to fabric, except for blue. I took like 15 pictures of all blue fabrics at JoAnn’s and my other coworker chose 3 fabrics she thought the birthday girl would like and I chose one out of those.  And here are the results:





She really loved them, thank goodness. She kept admiring them throughout the day, saying how much she liked the color. It made me feel good. I guess my other coworker and I chose right.

      I use to hate handmade gifts and now I give them to other people. lol

    I may not be crafty but I always love hearing about what you end up making. And this one looks so beautiful! The hues of blue in the pillow and that patterning is wonderful. Must be so satisfied with this birthday present!

    I love these! The fabric design is great. The little hearts embedded on there are classy and fun and not overly childlike as some heart designs can be. The color is also wonderful. It’s in my top 3, right after purple.

      Picking the design was so hard because you can’t guess what someone will like. Purple is my favorite color.
