WIP - Pillows for My New Studio

Okay, so it's been a loooong time since I've posted anything, and I can't believe it's almost March! My husband and I have been completely immersed in the process of purchasing a new house and preparing our current house for market. But, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel and now comes the fun part... dreaming up what to do with all the rooms, and my new studio space! That's right, my own studio space, just for all my sewing and art stuff. I've never really had one before, I've always just commandeered the kitchen table, or the china hutch, or all the available shelf space in the master bedroom... I think my husband is as happy about my new studio space as I am.

Anyhow, I knew I want my new space to be bright and cheery with lots of color, so when I ran across "Washi Tape" by Rashida Coleman, I knew I had found my inspiration. I love the hot pink, bright yellow and gray together and had no trouble finding coordinating fabrics to go with it so I could get to work sewing up some pillows for my comfy new space.

Here's how far I've gotten so far...

I made the pillow on the far right using a pattern
from one of Anna Maria Horner's books, "Handmade Beginnings"

I can't wait to make more stuff with these fabrics,
here's a breakdown of what I used.

Clockwise from top left:

Washi Tape in Beige by Rashida Coleman
Leaves in Warm by Helen Dardik (Too Muchery Collection, love that name)
Botanika Gray by moi (Spoonflower)
Star Flower Fuschia by Rashida Coleman (Washi Collection)
Solid Colors I had in my stash
Ghostly Squid Damask Small by moi (Spoonflower)
Sweet Spots Pink, also by moi (Michael Miller)
Spring Buds in Mustard by Lotta Jansdotter

I hope to have many more pillows done before move-in!
