Happy Pillows

Happy Monday!  This weather has been just crazy around these parts....I think today reached maybe 45 degrees....it was BEAUTIFUL and SUNNY!  I keep thinking we are going to get slammed with winter.....and I'm hoping I am wrong.  Anyways, I have a simple pillow redo for you...although it took me awhile to complete these pillows due to the fact that I am very NOVICE sewer.  Here are my pillows before.  There was nothing wrong with them before...however, I just wanted brighter and happier pillows to decorate my couch.
I found my two coordinating fabrics at JoAnns and I'm pretty sure they were on sale.  Makes me chuckle saying that because my mother's voice always pops into my head saying, "NEVER buy anything full price...it almost always goes on sale!"  It's funny what types of parental advice sticks with you throughout the years.   I did see pillows similar to these in blogland...however, I do not have the source for you.  Sorry!  Here's the after picture....I love how they turned out and they really do make me smile!
