Bedroom Update - New Pillows with Fabric From Tonic Living

With the recent addition to our bedroom with a Flor rug, it has forced a change in the decor in the room. Now with the rugs whites and tans the room need colors that compliment it. I decided on this lovely pattern from Tonic Living, Bodega in Chocolate for my main fabric.
First I sewed up a couple pillows for the bed.
The fabric is so easy to work with and sewed like dream. I then made a bolster type pillow with some other fabrics and topstitched each square.
Just a few scraps leftover from other projects that I turned into a interesting bolster that introduced some new colors to the room.
It was easy to create, just figure out what length you want and divided by the size of the strip and then divide by the number of colors. 
Then you will get the number of strips you will need of each color. So super easy and fun that I made on large one for the chair in the bedroom.

So go and check out Tonic Living, the have a great selection of fabrics and they will also make custom items too! Enjoy!
