My polka-dot chair is happy today :)



I finished this pillow last night.


I'm basically inlove with it.

Got the inspiration from a pillow my sissy got from Target:

I hesitated in putting this up cause I really do think the target one is cuter than mine :( HOWEVER- I really really love mine! If I did it all over again, I would've put those danged flowers closer together/made the flowers bigger. Oh well. Live and learn. I know this phrase is probably getting old, but there will be a tutorial on it soon! teehehe. Seriously- just give me a weekend and I'll get em up! PEACE!

OH MY GOSH DANIELLE_ I LOVE IT!!!!!! I can't believe how professional it looks, it does not look homemade! That is incredible! Is it hard? Time consuming? It just looks complicated! I LOVE it in blue and I LOVE it on your chair! Could be fun to paint the legs in that blue :) I can't wait to make one. It is official- you are the best seamstress in the fam, besides mom! Sorry I had to get off the phone- i was picking up mikey- and now i don't have time to talk- atleast not until later tonight- love you!

i really want a tutorial on making this pillow. it is so darn cute! I think the colors of your pillow are great. I think you are right in making bigger flowers to mimic the other more closely but that is what makes yours different and just awesome. Can't wait to get the steps.

I love,love,love, your pillow!!! It looks great on your chair, I agree, it is very happy today. I would never have noticed the difference between the two pillows though if you hadn't pointed it out! I love you!!!!!!!

LOVING THISSSS! I want to copy it! I just recently decided that i want LOTS of pillows on my bed. So now I'm going to have to try and do a lesser version of your pillows because I'm not nearly as talented as you :) but thanks for the ideas!

danielle- you have a pst titled 2010 peace out- but I clicked on it- and got your pillow post- where is it?

Your pillow is amAZING. I cannot believe you made that! Well, I can, because you're just like that, but I LOVE IT. It look so professional.

I wish we lived closer and you could teach me all of your new creativity/braveness you mentioned. Shad and I went off treats today....I wanted to go like 6 months, he said no way and that he'd do a month. = ) It's just easier when you do it together, ya know?

We pray every night that yours and Clay's lyme disease will be destroyed. I don't really know how else to phrase it, since it's such a sneaky disease. miss you.

Wow, Danielle, you are so talented! I can't believe that you just made that all by yourself. I think it looks just as cute as the one from Target. I have seen the one that Lizzie has and totally thought that another one came out in different colors until I read that you made it. Please continue to do the tutorials. I think that they are awesome! :)
