In the midst of a hectic weekend, I found myself hiding in the craft room with my laptop open to Pinterest. There, I saw a photo of some house-shaped pillows and was so taken with them, I suddenly felt as if my own home would be much cozier (and stylish!) with my own hand-made set… and so, I set out to hand-make some!
Original Pinterest inspiration below….

I began my pillows, by sifting through all of my fabrics and selecting colors and patterns that I thought worked well together.
Next, I measured, cut, pinned, sewed, and flipped right-side out until my fabric pieces began to resemble a plush little neighborhood.
And when I was finished, I realized… I should take a basic sewing class so that I can learn some sewing shortcuts and tricks! These little guys took the better part of a Monday.
But for me, it was worth it. I love my pillow houses.
And while I originally thought I might be making early Christmas gifts…
Now I’m not so sure!
Should I keep them? Or give them to my friends and family?
I’ll enjoy the view of my new neighborhood while I deliberate…
I love these! My mother-in-law has a pillow blog and I bet she would get a kick out of these…I’ll pass along! Love that bird fabric, by the way!
Thanks Danielle! I’d love to see her pillow blog if you have a url handy And the fabric… is almost ALL from Ikea! Thanks again!
I’m the lucky mother-in-law of Danielle, who did indeed pass along your post, and I LOVE your pillows! And your fabrics! And your blog! Keep up the great work!

We read your blog and it is very beautiful and the content is also good, you have well described the different types of fabric well and I liked it so thank you, different types of fabric – Cotton, denim, silk fabrics are constructed from natural fibers while fabrics that are made from synthetic fibers are rayon, felt, velvet, etc.
