Scrappy Reader Pillows | Room Re-Do

January 10, 2015

When we moved to Texas, we had to get a new bed for Zoe. We contemplated whether to purchase her a twin or queen size bed. Ultimately, we decided to give her our old queen mattress and purchase a new memory foam mattress for ourselves. (It was a good choice for both parties)

She adores the giant bed, and we have a nice big bed for visitors to stay in. However, we don't have extra queen size bedding. Rather than purchase new bedding, I decided to make some for her with this gorgeous fabric I've been holding onto for quite some time.

Her quilt is in the works right now. I'll share more on that when it's completed. While I was waiting on some extra fabric to arrive, I had enough scraps to start making some pillows.

I made these Scrappy Reader Pillows to hold Zoe's ever-growing stash of books she likes to read at night. The finished pillows are 14 x 14. The front pockets are quilted and the pillows have an envelope back opening.

Fabric: Briar Rose by Heather Ross for Windham Fabrics - it is out of print,
but you can find various prints available on etsy, ebay & Fort Worth Fabric Studio

These pillows are a staple on her bed right now. They currently hold these adorable abridged and illustrated classics from the Target $1 spot.

The pattern for these pillows is available in this book. I've had it for almost two years now. I love it, but I've never made anything from it - until now!


On a side note - If you are new to sewing or are looking for easy to follow patterns, Allison Harris from Cluck, Cluck, Sew, is by far my favorite. Her designs are beautiful and clean, and her patterns are so user friendly!

Look for more posts on Zoe's Bedroom Re-do coming soon. I'll be making standard pillow cases, a bed skirt and quilt!

XOXO,
Holly & Co.
