The Envelope Please

Now that my husband and I have settled in a home, we decided to do the mature thing and buy neutral-colored, well-made furniture instead of the funky conversation pieces we used to pick up secondhand or on clearance. But I do love color so I decided to whip up some throw pillows from fabric with pops of color and cheeky designs.

I bought the above Alexander Henry (I think) fabric on ebay and used a pin-striped brown denim for the back that I picked up on sale at Jo Ann's. The pillow inserts are from Ikea.

I used the below Instructables's envelope pillow tutorial, and I had two new pillows in under 2 hours. Can't beat that..
