Sewing 101: zippered throw pillows

Sewing 101: zippered throw pillows
Next up in our learn-to-sew series: throw pillows! Throw pillows are another fantastic way to incorporate cute textiles and DIY flair into your home without a great investment of time or money. If you’ve ever gone into a fabric store and wanted to buy everything because it’s just all so gorgeous, then pillows are a great way to put those fabrics to work in your decor. Bold or loud prints that would be too much used in large scale (like in curtains) can be just right for a little pillow pop on a sofa or bed. I’m going to show you how to make a zippered pillow cover, which is easier than it sounds, I promise. It looks super-professional AND has the added bonus of being easily changeable—I love the idea of making tons of different pillow covers and just swapping them out whenever you want a little change in a room. The best part? CLICK HERE for the full zippered throw pillow how-to after the jump! A Word on Zippers What You’ll Need 1 pillow form (buy this at a craft store or upholstery shop)

An Eco-Friendly Apartment in New York City A New York City family of five outgrew their Chelsea loft and instead of moving decided to purchase the identical apartment above theirs and merge the two. The owners brought in Design Development NYC to oversee the construction of the eco-friendly renovation and they incorporated a number of health-conscious systems and sustainable materials and with the help of architecture studio wUNDERground and Damon Liss Design handling the interiors, the family got the healthy urban home they desired. Both apartments were gutted and the work began to reconfigure the 3,600 square feet of space. The bottom floor was transformed into the public living spaces, including a large eat-in kitchen, a playroom, and a living/dining room. The upstairs features a study, laundry room, three children’s bedrooms, and a master suite. CityProof windows were installed along the exterior facing the street to improve thermal performance, as well as to help minimize noise.

How to knit pouf Ever since I saw a knitted Pouf (or Puff) from Pinterest, I was so inspired and wanting to knit one for my fireplace this Christmas. I want colored cord or rope and not the natural color clothelines I used for the crochet Giant Doily Rug and knit Floor Mat. So, I begin to search around for colored cord and coincidentally Bobbiny contacted me at the same time to introduce their colorful ropes.
