My First Envelope Pillow Cover
& Matching Headboard

I finally sewed my very first envelope pillow cover and it was super easy!
I had found this tutorial through pinterest a while back and thought it looked
easy so I tried it and made a pillow cover for a pillow I had originally sewn
for my bed. Here is the back of the pillow..
and it matches our headboard...
You might recognize this headboard from Living with Lindsay.
She is re-decorating her master bedroom and so she was giving away this
headboard on facebook a couple months ago which I immediatley snatched up...
I was super duper excited because we didn't even have a headboard.
Our bed looked like this...
pretty much pillows up against a wall.
I love our new headboard, it goes really well with our
light blue walls! So when I went to pick up the headboard Lindsay
gave me some matching fabric! (she is super sweet!)
and so that is how I made a matching pillow..
Here are a couple more pics because I'm pretty much still
in love with my new chair and I love my new pillow...
(yeah...please don't mind that little piece of trash on the floor!
I was so excited to take pictures that I didn't even see it until now..)
and now my first envelope pillow cover!

I have a couple more things to do to this room
before I show you guys the full reveal!
I found a mirror for our dresser at a garage sale a couple
weeks ago that I still need to paint and just a couple
touches here and there and it will be ready! :)


  1. Very pretty Cindy! I love it! The chair and the pillows look great together;)

  2. So elegant Cindy! I love the whole look you have created! Can't wait to see it all together.

  3. I like! Can't wait to see the rest!
