Pillows adding Texture

Friday, March 8, 2013
I just realized it's been a while since I've posted pillows on the blog.  I'm really sorry if it has traumatized anyone. :)  I've been cranking out wallets, and design team projects, and never really found time to make more pillows.  Well, this week that all changed.  I have a couple of boutiques coming up (I think I've mentioned that before) and I'm busy bulking up my inventory.  When I first made my Wavy Ruffle Pillow, I made a bunch of them, but all in white.  I've been wanting to make one in a different color for a while but never took the time.
ruffle, fabric, texture
I fixed that problem.

It's glorious in gray.  But that's just my opinion.

I also wanted to try the Pleated Ruffle Pillow in a solid color- to see if I would like it as a textural pillow instead of showcasing a line of prints.

texture, pillow, pleated, fabric
The emerald color was a stretch for me.  It's not something I would normally pick.  I'm glad my sister was at Joann's with me when I was buying the fabrics, it's really a lovely pillow.

ruffles, pleated, shag
While I was on a pillow kick- I had two more pillows that I had started a long time ago and finally finished them up.  I think this set would be gorgeous on a bed.  The pleated ruffle pillow was made using the Capri Collection from Adornit, and the shag pillow was inspired by this tutorial from V and Co.  although I modified it a little bit to have a shaggier look.

So now I need your help.  I bought several different solid colored fabrics- should I make Wavy Ruffle Pillows or Pleated Ruffle Pillows?  You know I trust your opinion.

xoxo,
Amy

I really love the wavy ruffle pillows with the solid fabric.

Love the wavy in the gray.
But that pleated is adorable in the green.
But I think wavy would be more useful, the pleats seem more trendy to me.
Or maybe just do some of both. Although I think people would look at the wavy and say, I can do that. And then look at the pleated and say, I should just buy that.
Sorry, no help here. Either way both pillows are adorable. I would be happy to have either come live at my house. :)

Since I have both, I love both! You are the pillow queen. The ruffle is gorgeous in gray. Please stop tempting me!

I think the wavy is so pretty and soft looking. but the pleated one is very sculptural which I also find appealing. if I HAD to choose, I think I'd go with the wavy.

If you have several solid colours I'd do some in both..variety is always good 'cos peoples tastes vary so much. All of those you've made look great.

I've been going through pillow withdrawals ;) The gray is glorious. Love it. I'd go wavy for the boutiques. That's my fave.

Hard decision! I like all three. The pleat seems more formal. I guess it depends on where you wish to place them.

Each of these looks great! The pleat one looks s little more formal. I guess it depends where you intend to place your pillows as to which design you make.
