who else is surprised....

that 2002 was 10 years ago? in 2002, i was 12 years old, in 7th grade, and redecorating my bedroom with dark browns and greens. part of that was these "lovely" green and brown velvet pillows. 
they stayed around for 10 years, in our first apartment, and the two houses we've been in. but now, i have realized how much i hate them. and now they are gone. 
today i stole their insides and made these super adorable new pillows. they are both made from a single piece of cloth from the dollar tree and my old pillows were free. i used a sharpie to draw the designs, brown thread, and spray fixative to make sure the designs wouldn't run. as an artist, i had all that available, so the total cost of these pillows was $1!

the first is a simple wood grain design, kind of more graphic than realistic.
the second one is a tree pattern with N+B in a heart (nelson and beth).




and here is the whole new pillow family! i'm slowly on my way to a house full of new things i like. :)
